Nice travel video in Kaliningrad.

https://www.rbth.com/travel/327165-kaliningrad-for-100

Very cool travel video series, what to do in two days for $100. I liked the one about Yekaterinburg as well. There’s even one for Sochi!  :)

It's been a few years since my wife passed away in Moscow, since the funeral I have not returned.
But I do want to visit in the near future

Give me strength, he’s beginning to sound like that little wiener JayH now

The blokes been there and so have you, it’s only bloody Russia fella, it’s not like a trip to the moon is it
If you get a minute check out Bruce's TR - Its not quite finished, however its still a pretty good read IMHO.

If I win the lottery I'll finish it this week if not I'll probably complete it when I retire!!! Until then I hope you enjoy the story so far!

Tom Cat made the mistake of posting interesting and useful links. It was inevitable that Moby would attack him.
