Been a month on the road so here's some words for my own posterity reasons, and those that have asked!

I arrived in Moscow after a varied pre-TS European trip.....The highlights?

Croatia: Booze cruise and bbq on a traditional wooden Croatian sailing boat, at one point jumping off a 2 storey high rocks into the sea and snorkeling off the boat along the Adriatic coast (no reefs though). Hiring mopeds and traversing the length off Hvar island (Croatian Ibiza ...

... 1082;а) is the name of several inhabited localities in Russia. Urban localities. Listvyanka, Irkutsky District, Irkutsk Oblast, a work .. This place has the WOW factor.
