So, today I begin my adventure to St. Petersburg and what a day it has been already! I managed to finish packing my very large bag yesterday and I was feeling all relaxed this morning, until I found out about the bombing at the Moscow airport. I am flying into Moscow tomorrow and connecting to St. Petersburg from there and this whole event has left me feeling a little uneasy. Fortunately, my flight into Moscow arrives at a different airport and their security will likely be very heightened as I go through customs. I still can’t help thinking about the poor victims and I pray that there are no more.
Once I arrive in St. Petersburg, I will be sure to send word to all my family and friends who will want to tune into my posts. Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers and words of encouragement – it could not have made it this far without you!
