      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. Don't be put off by the entrance hall to the apartments when you are buzzed into the building, once you get to the apartment upstairs it does get a lot better!

Afterwards we head back to the flat and have dinner. After 3 days in Prague we travel to Berlin. It's 5 hours on the train across beautiful valleys. I spot quite a few deers in the fields near the tracks while Anna sleeps and the kids watch a film. I love those quiet moments. Berlin is great, lots to do see and do, ...

The mind boggles at the prospect of trying to do anything like this at home - it would take you longer than ...

      ... The next day was my flight out of St Petersburg and I was sad to leave.  It's a surprisingly European city with a Slavic twist and is definitely on my list to revisit. Thus began my epic journey to Colombia!  I left St Petersburg on Tuesday but didn't arrive in Medellin until Thursday afternoon, nearly 48 hours after I left.  I will never fly Iberia airlines again.  The story began with a flight from St Petersburg to Heathrow, and then another flight from Heathrow ...

They also make different parties in the hostel during the weekends and last Saturday we had a Vodka party again (all parties usually involve Vodka because as one guy from the hostel said "Coctail party, Vodka Party - I don’t see the difference") and so we tried different kinds of this famous drink and later went to a ...
