{wt} saint petersburg

Last year we had our first World Trip {wt} (Miami, Los Angeles, Beijing, Dubai, Lebanon, Frankfurt, Miami), this weekend I was happily planning our second World Trip (destinations chosen, but still pending). One of the possibilities is the mythical and inspirational city of St. Petersburg, Russia (there is a St. Petersburg in Florida as well, and as I came to notice Google and Expedia get confused some times, so now, I simply state Russia just in case). Travel planning being one of my favourite pass-times I emerged myself completely in the history, lodging options and palaces of Peter the Great’s “Paradise”.

Though young in comparison with its European counter parts (founded in 1703 by Peter the Great) the city is a rapture of mystery, legends and canals; enough to intrigue any visitor. On my list of chic-things-to-do in St. Petersburg are (of course, I try to keep it short as we will only be there for a few days…and thus I already anticipate that some of these might not make it to the actual list, but dreaming doesn’t cost anything).

During a World Trip {wt} (which simply implies that we are flying completely around the world….not that we expect to visit an endless amount of destinations) time management is of the essence (and so is luggage management….thus no endless amount of shoes either). Most importantly it is the people travelling with you that count the most (especially on those 14hour flights).

Looking forward to sharing more of the destination options with you soon.
