    To Russia with Love: Church of the Savior on Blood, St Petersburg

    One of the most beautiful cathedrals in Russia. Church of the Savior on Blood has a long and troubled history. One could say it is a miracle that we can still go to St Petersburg and enjoy seeing it.

    To Russia with Love: A Place Where 3 Bridges Meet

    A place for dreaming. This is one of my favorite places in St Petersburg - a place where 3 bridges meet, in the heart of the historic city center. It is close to all the major tourist attractions such as the Church of the Savior on Blood, Field of Mars, and many others, two of St Petersburg’s most beautiful canals meet and three bridges, which cross them come together in one.

    The Dakota Building

    A glamorous yet historical building in New York City and one of my "must-sees" during my New York trip was the Dakota Building. It was actually one of my first stops. Like I said in my Strawberry Fields article, being a huge fan of The Beatles, the Dakota Building is quite important to me.

    Putney Vale Cemetery

    As Jerome K Jerome once said “I take no interest in creeping round dim and chilly churches behind wheezy old men, and reading epitaphs. Not even the sight of a bit of cracked brass let into a stone affords me what I call real happiness.” He did however, admit that for most Brits, a poke around a cemetery was a great way to pass the time. Jerome then would not like Putney Vale Cemetery but I do.

    Escape from the City: Waterfalls Among A Concrete Jungle

    In a city surrounded by skyscrapers, banks and law firms, where do you go to unwind? Where do you go to get away from city life? The next beach is overcrowded, at the next beach are clubs where you're bound to run into people you know turning the night into yet another beer consumption ritual. So where do you go to unwind?
