Our Trips

Some people like to sit at home and watch TV, others like jogging every weekend and we do too but we LOVE to travel. Back in Russia we didn't have many possibilities to do it often because we studied at the university and didn't have much time, money, and ways to travel. But even there summer and winter holidays are "must-travel" time. After arriving to US we've got a car, and money, and time (when there is no rush at work). So, all these facts together mean only one thing - don't sit at home, jump in a car and drive to some new and interesting places!!! So here you'll find the descriptions of our various trips around the world including useful links to the travel destinations. And now we've lived in USA for a long while and have a family however we still continue our travel adventures... just not enough time to describe them all :-) (Many unfinished stories but so little time ...)
