Wanaka tree

I'm back

I had a fantastic time in Saint Petersburg, spent with some great people who looked after me so well. I can't thank them enough for the trouble and time they took to make my stay so enjoyable. So, I have special thanks for the wonderful ilmera  who was a real star in every possible way and the best friend I could wish for, baby Alice who was gorgeous and endearing and funny and loveable, divine_scourge who made sure I had a brilliant guide when ilmera  couldn't be with me and has now become a real friend as well, Nikita who did a great job of looking after me and organising things. All in all, they were all incredible and I am so grateful. Without you I don't know what I would have done.

By the way, I now have Alice's cold and I'm proudly incubating it so that I can spread it around the whole of the UK. Everyone should have a share of Alice's cold!

I went to loads of places, did lots of interesting things and have photos to prove it. But first I am going to post the most important pictures; the photos I most wanted to take.
