Watch the girls over there...they are SUPER hot and will do about anything to get outta there.
A friend of mine got his mail-order bride in Russia,a nd man, is she sumpin!
to Gravis: I got some very distant family that I am in hopes of finding , its been over 15 years that I have seen them and would like to find them. I know that some of them are in SouthEastern part of Russia. I would like to go for 2 weeks and see what I can accomplish, I will budget about $500 a day(including hotel,travel within the country ect ect) for the trip. I have been to Russia before but its been ages and I was a kid back then, not even a teenager.....
I think Russia is beautiful and changed drastically over the years. I think that people are mislead on what Russia trully has to offer. Yes it sucks during the winter, I believe its about 33 degrees there right now but its just like here the rest of the season, I am not planning on going there until march anyways,maybe April. I am going to book a ticket soon and $700 for a two way flight is not bad at all. I am going from here to England and stopping there for three days and on the way back I am stopping in Germany for four days. In reality I will be gone for 3 weeks maybe longer. Being in the Marine Corps I was stationed in Moscow's Embassy for a while and felt very privileged to learn the language.
Kiev, (not that the screen name would give it away) but I am assuming you have some ties in Russia, aint no one elso in Fairfax County going to mention eating pelmeni and surviving on $100 budget....lol.you know what I am talking about
Going Saratov, I am having a friend come with me who has never been out of the country........should be good for him. I am going to Saratov but then going to one of the subregion towns. We got a nice luxury rental so it should be fun. Ill post some pictures
there is a major University right in the middle of the city and supposedly it's in high demand. I know people from surrounding eastern European cuntries go there but I am not sure about any Americans traveling that far into Russia. Its really easy to stand out if you are a foreighner. We had our own military police cars and local police escort on call but I am sure it will be different traveling on my own.
