Made in Russia

Sanction, sanction, sanction… Living in alienation under a deluge of sanctions sometimes has a silver lining. It means you must be super creative to fulfill the needs of your citizens under millions of boycotts that limit your opportunity to import products. And, in a country like Russia, where the government controls almost every aspect of its citizens' lives, the condition is far more complicated. Although the Russian government doesn’t block all western sites, such as Google or Amazon, we still have a problem with delivery and shipment.

Travel Around the City in Stockholm and Outside the City

Stockholm is incredibly expensive. Three or four days living comfortably in Sweden’s capital city successfully made me broke.

Fun Things to do In St.Petersburg During the Summer: One Day Itinerary For Real Slacker

St. Petersburg isn’t always freezing like lots of people might imagine whenever they hear the word “Russia” mentioned. They do have sunny warm days that lure everyone into spending more time outdoors instead of hiding under their cozy blankets. I have visited this town more than 4 times, all of them on gloomy windy chilly March, September, October, or December days. So, the decision I made after that was just, "Okay, that will be my last. I won’t go to St. Petersburg anymore and I really don’t understand why people keep telling me that it is beautiful.” But, it seems I always forget the things I said…
