ok i know this is like 2 weeks delayed but ohwell.
so we arrive at the airport after a shitass flight schedual on shitty planes and bad food so we were already grumpy. we went to get a taxi which we realised would cost 100 aus so i was like no way we will find our way by train. so i ask at information no they speak no english just show me a sign of the turbe stop i need once were in central moscow 40kms away. after trying to buy tickets from another lady again no english spoken so i guess she gave us what all tourists get so after waiting like another 2 hours for the train we get into moscow and another game trying to get more tickets for the actuall tube luky i caught on from somone else and brought tickets with 10 rides on it easy enough no real hassel. first impresson of moscow cold gray but very unique our hostel was on a really nice st found it quick their directoins were very good. didnt look like the hostels iwas used to but it had a bed and we were the only ones in our 6 bed dorm room for that night. we got some local food down the st for dinner expensive pretty much the same price as home. first day we set out to do do the kremlin and the red sq reallllllllllllllllllllllllllllllly beautifull unfortunatley the pics dont do it justice by a long shot buildings,cathedrals and they are just crazy weird- worth all the effort for sure. we walked that day for about 7 hours so we were very very tired we had dinner early and set out the next day after waking up to snow, for the zoo a cemetary and another cathedral with good views of the city. we got an overnight train to st petersburg which was different.
st petersburg is a lot nicer city a lot cleaner newer just a better lay out and not as big as moscow. the ppl still not helpfull. After very shitty directions we finally got there and went to the hermitage which is their vatican no where near as nice, i love wqalkıng the streets of new places we walked and walked that day till it was time to have a rest because we were so tşred from our train ride. the souvenires here are soo nice the russian dolls are just perfectly painted i got a little chriss decoration for when i have my own tree its so pretty one in a million i think. The worst thing about st petersburg id the tube we got lost many times which shit me cause i am really good at tubed i catch on quick not this one all the stop names look the same there are no maps to look at ahhhhhhh hated it. next finland thank god after getting to the ai;rport with like 30 mins to spare we were lucky we got it and didnt miss it opps would have been all my fault cause of the dammm tube!!!!
so next finland wont say much pretty nice town nothing here thats different cept its sooooooo expensive!!!! like 60 euro a day was going with ease!!! we had to eat pasta and soup for dinner really scrimping......... the ppl though are very nice and helpfull the ice bar was a highlight at 10 euro to get in and 10 euro for a drink go figure ripper offeres actually the weirdest thing is at 930-10 at night the sun hasnt gone down yet weird!!!!
next blog turkey!!
