Torrential rain - St Petersburg

A travel blog entry by janet_and_ron

Another 5.30 start, ready to be off the ship at 7.45! Thank goodness the ship leaves port at 6.00pm, as it's another "all day" tour. A different guide, Natasha. Tall and leggy, wearing all white (including white jodpur type gumboots). Natasha was a lot more laid back than Svetlana. We had more free time - she'd show us something or talk about something, then we'd have to meet up later. Probably a bit of a cop out on her part, but much more relaxing. When I said we'd ...

Kristina was having kittens as Andy was traveling with a few passports; using his Australian one in Europe but his Hongkong one in Russia, to avoid the need for a visa. The Estonians wanted to know how he got into Europe when he showed the Hong Kong passport, to avoid getting a Russian visa. The Russians looked well confused ...

Watch out for pickpockets

I hadn't slept very well at all – probably due to the fact that it didn’t actually get fully dark (we were also awake around 1.30am filming from the balcony as the sky looked lovely). Very cool but not particularly useful when you sleep with the curtains partially open. I’d been having some exceedingly weird dreams too, about the karaoke and the dancing – you can see where my head was! We also lost another hour so that was another ...
