Wheels to Russia in motion
So I took the leap. Yesterday while working at home, I took a break and called a travel agency that specializes in travel to Russia. I spoke with Olga, a very nice agent from St. Petersburg who asked me the length of my trip, when I want to go, what I want to see, what kind of accommodations I want, how long in each city and how independent I feel. We agreed that I'd go with a partially guided / partially independent trip. She's putting a customized itinerary together now, including flights and visas. I anxiously await both the itinerary and the bottom line. Fingers crossed that Olga pulls something together that I'll just love!
