I'm a year round St. Petersburger. I grew up in the Smolensk area, attended University in St. Petersburg and never went home. I recently opened my own tour business for incoming visitors. It's a start-up, not much to report yet. My hobbies are travelling, reading, going to the gym, and taking my Golden Retriever for long walks. As a fellow traveler, I share your interests in new places and welcome all questions that will help you plan your trip and ease your fears.
