A bit Petersburg Tong... Part 2

A travel blog entry by gdarmo


So to take my mind off all the hassle from the previous day, I was determined to try and see a different side of St Petersburg, and I had a few things which showed the cultural side of the city to see. First, Nicola and I went to pick up the tickets from the Moscow station, which was simple enough, but we had to queue for about 40 minutes. Nicola …

As we raced through the forests of eastern Finland, stopping briefly in Kirsi's hometown of Kouvola, I tried to keep as hydrated as possible, and checked all my documents about my accommodation in St. Petersburg. It looked …

    The staff were polite and very helpful, the room I was in was basic but comfortable, if a little hot and humid, however street noise could be quite intrusive, but the shower, bathroom and kitchen facilities were very good and well maintained.
