In September I am going to Russia for a year to study. From there I hope to travel around parts of Europe when I have breaks from school (and even when I don't!).

Then I can get on with the visa and then wait for it to arrive, frantically e-mailing and consulate until it arrives the day before I fly out(as per what happened last time I went to Russia). My next blog will most likely occur a week or so before I leave when I start freaking out about my independent travel/study plans and find myself packing, unpacking and then repacking my suitcase. ... read more
