Why we are doing it?

The goal of this blog is to help people understand Russia better and to have a better experience while they are here.  We wanted to write something that would help people fall in love with Russia, as much as we have, by sharing our experiences and funny stories about our life as an expat in St. Petersburg (Maya Krivchenia) and travel professional organizer (Alexander Rodionov).

Maya Krivchenia

Ms. Krivchenia grew up in a small town in Ohio, USA. In 2005 she won a Fulbright to study Russian music at the Mariinsky Theater in St. Petersburg.  After her Fulbright year she was so in love with Russia that she has decided to make her life and career there.
