St. Petersburg - Russia

Russia always seems to have a bad rep. It is where I was born, not in St. Petersburg, but Siberia; a slightly different animal.

Russia is filled with history unlike any other country. The history is cruel; the present is a political and economic battleground. But nevertheless, even after many years of living in the US, my loyalty and love for Russia will never fade.

St. Petersburg is especially beautiful and a good representation of Russian character: strong and tough.


Paris - Nothing but a Dream

Paris never stops to surprise me. Every visit is unique, yet the same all in one. 


Christmas in Paris

On Christmas day, bright and early (probably due to jet lag), we headed up to Montmartre area to the Dali museum and check out Sacre Coeur, along with the view.


Christmas Eve in Paris

I have been to Paris more than a handful of times, but never at Christmas time.
It has always been my dream to see it all lit up with Christmas decorations and stroll through the Christmas markets stalls to check out all the goodies.
My dream came true in 2014.

Rome, Italy

I love Italy.

I have been to Italy on several occasions. My mom has an infatuation with Venice, so we always ended up there, somehow. As time has gone by, I have wanted to explore the smaller villages, the outskirts, a little more local, a little more culture - in the sense of every day life.


Trinity Groves - Souk Date Night

Enzo's look below, sums up about the last month of my crazy life.

It's been a little hectic with work. I'm either packing or unpacking, or unpacking to pack.


Rome - The Arrival

Mom and I were both sad to leave Positano.
Just as we got comfortable and familiar with the place, it was time to pack up and head to Rome.

We packed our suitcases the night before, got up at 6 a.m. to catch our taxi to take us to the train station. Then, take the train to Rome, and another taxi to the hotel.
Something so close, is yet so far.
We had arrived to the hotel around noon and luckily were able to check-in early.
