While we spent most of our time in Russia in its two most famous cities, Moscow and Saint Petersburg, we also ventured into the Russian wilderness just a little bit, with a trusted friend. Our most important advice: be sure to pack warm!
And if you do get cold, remember that vodka was invented to warm you up. For the guys out there, cuddling with a nice Russian woman can do a nice job of warming you up too. We assume the same would be true of the Russian men, but we cannot personally attest to that fact.
