Flag of Russia  , Saint Petersburg,
Wednesday, September 9, 2015

We finally flew this morning. It was a great flight except for one minor snag - the BA carousel was broken at terminal 5, meaning bags were not getting to the plane in time so had to be sent later. Luckily they let us take everything as carry on. Phew!

When we arrived we jumped on the metro. To exit the metro we had to go on the longest single escalator in the word!!!!

Our hostel is lovely and really clean (Simple Hostel).

Popped out about 5pm for a short walk around the area but ended up walking about 5miles. We found a truly beautiful city complemented by a magnificent sunset. Had a yummy beef stroganoff for my dinner.

Downside to the day - I found out I left my kindle on the plane (idiot!). On the plus side one of the air stewards contacted us to let us know and left it at the airport of me to collect.
