This morning we are visiting Catherine's Palace in Pushkin about an hour away. We leave early to avoid the crowds but when we arrive, the palace is not open and we have to stand and wait in the freezing cold.

... really like 10, but him & Georgia, wake up at like 6 every morning & get bored waiting for everyone to wake up. Some of us ventured a bit further out of St pete's and went to see Petergof gardens, then decided to spend the rest of the day in a pub waiting for the first train. When we got back to the hostel & we were getting packed ready to leave, their was a Russian soldier in the kitchen with what we guessed was his bit on the side. He seemed ...
