When you read these lines, I will be on my way to the Great North: after a few days in Moscow, I plan to cross the Arctic Circle aboard the Arktika train to enjoy some (moderately) extreme tourism.
As a result, I won’t be blogging for a couple of weeks, but I’m planning to post a few pictures during my trip. I encourage you to check out my Instagram account – most of the pictures are also cross-posted to my Facebook and Twitter accounts, although I sometimes forget to check the required boxes. If all goes well, you might see shots of very frozen lakes, real Arctic cuisine, and historic vodka distilleries!
