... and every morning you woke up to (free) freshly made waffles. I could have quite happily spent a couple of days relaxing without leaving the building! But Nik informed me this wasn't part of the great adventure master plan, so we went off to see the Hermitage instead.

We couchsurfed again in SP with a great girl named Olga. I can't stress enough how awesome couchsurfing is. She was so welcoming to us - she had a ...
