‘If It’s a Destiny, We’ll Meet Again’

The Trouble with Russian Parents

Obviously, I am switching from being a travel blogger into a life blogger. In this post, I want to discuss the child- parent relationship. Indeed, a tough topic. On the other hand, I am not making a history as the generation problem has always been there. Parents do love their children, and I won't argue… Continue reading The Trouble with Russian Parents

Moscow by a Semi-foreigner

Last year I devoted the big part of my writing to my childhood memories of the 90s Russia. So what about the country today? Russia is very unstable in political, economic, and social aspects. Everybody knows that, and I don't see any point rediscovering the common sense all over again. Instead, I will take you… Continue reading Moscow by a Semi-foreigner
