3 of the 4 times I have visited Russia has been during the winter months... and I love it!!! In fact, I am moving to Saint Petersburg, from California of all places, this December. While it is freaking cold and you should prepare yourself for such, I cannot think of a better season to visit.

Who can argue a time of year that offers travelers the sight of beautiful Russian woman arriving at night clubs in full length fur coats, only to disrobe them for their mini skirts!!!

If you need any travel advice or assistance feel free to contact me personally. Travel is my life, or it least it has been while exploring 42 countries over the previous 4 years.
