... seems a bit rougher but soon we are back to sleep fortunately there are not many stops that wake you up and no one else comes to our carriage. Our arrival in St. Petersburg is at 10:25 so no rush to get up. We also lost 2 hours due to time differences in the last 24 hours so feeling very tired.

That evening it was time for our last dinner with the group and it was with the usual mix of happiness and sadness that it was all over. Another really amazing bunch to travel with and led by a more than capable CEO Mark. Leaving for the airport at 12:00 on Saturday with much to think about which we will wrap up when we get back to sunny ...
