“I’m too busy raising cane. I’m back on the street again. I’m,,, back on the top again” – Van Morrison. We join fads. We cling to the popular.

“A world in white is underway” – Paul Hewson. First of all thanks to the Russian government’s decision to give all World Cup ticket holders (and therefore FAN ID holders) visa free entry until 31st December 2018. It meant we could all go back for unlimited entries into Russia (any city, by land, by air…) Read more about Backpacking in Saint Petersburg: My Winter Stay at the Kino Hostel, Vyborgsky District[…]
