Hello From Texas
« on: August 10, 2018, 05:42:45 AM »
I have discovered this site while seeking news from Moscow and St Petersburg. 

I am a senior citizen who has lived in Austin, Texas since 1972. I was born in Boston, Massachusetts and went out to California at 18 before moving to Austin.

My ancestry is Russian and Poland / Eastern European. My maternal grandparents escaped from Russia just before the Revolution. My paternal grandparents came from the Poland area way way back.

I will be visiting St Petersburg on a cruise Fall 2019, my first time in Russia. Very excited. I chose this cruise because I have wanted to visit Russia. It is the typical Baltic cruise. I will be sailing from Copenhagen and going to Berlin, Talin, St. Petersburg, Helsinki and Stockholm.

Welcome to the forum, Bostonphil

Hope the autumnal northerly winds haven't cut in - as you;'ll have to wrap up ,well and the ladies will be hidden in layers of clothing :))

There'll be plenty of  beautiful architecture to see ....the Hermitage in St .Petersburg is a must - even if you didn't think you were into art
