I'm back - but I have no idea where our bags are

St Petersburg is stupefyingly amazing. I would love to tell you about it but we have just rocked home very, very late, many hours after we were supposed to, after a horrendous trip which culminated in our bags going somewhere else. I do however have a boatload of stories to tell you including what a ‘luxury serviced apartment’ in St Petersburg is like, why we went to Moscow for a day to see Vladimir Putin, why everyone in Russia has a job which they apparently hate, what it is like to walk around when the temperature is -15 and why I know longer have a Canon 400D camera.


  1. *gulp*

    Happy New Year - there are something like 363 days left!

    What happened to your camera?
    I "lost" a camera in Kiev, thanks to a clever thief who managed to get steal it while I was in the company of two other people. None of us knows how it happened.

  2. Oh no! I read you post aloud to my husband, who knows something about Canons and we're feeling your pain right now. At least you are back safe and sound, if not the rest of your belongings.

  3. Welcome home. I can't wait to read some of those stories.

  5. It's Putin's fault I had to delete my previous comment! *growl*
