Phase II


Main, Detailed Itinerary & Expenses, Statistics, The Russia Experience

The trip cost us each around $6,000 US. For the first time in our lives, we engaged a professional travel agent to book our train tickets and some hotels, and arrange our visas. It was difficult enough to arrange the entire trip because of extremely tight start and end date ranges of both Will and I, worked around affordable British Airways flight possibilities for Will.
