    Probably too late to get onboard this time but would be interested in September trip you mentioned.

  • Nena

    Hi All...have confirmed wit the Russian Embassy that is not essential to prebook an appointment. You can just turn up between the times of[masked] (Monday to Friday) and you can wait and lodge. The only difference with just turning up is that you may have a little wait. Let me know if you need any clarification of this. thanks Nena

    Hi - just to say that I have booked my flights. I used air miles so I cannot say what the current prices is.

    December 7, 2012

  • Nena

    Hi need to book your own flights. They need to be similar or same timings to the ones above. Flying into St Petersburg and and back from Moscow. thanks Nena

    December 5, 2012

  • Katalin K.

    I checked today, flights are already £281. Are these times above the only ones we can chose for this trip?

    Nena - are you going to organise our flights or do we do our own? DAVID

    December 4, 2012

  • Nena

    Hi Katalin, the dates are definate. The Russia trip is usually very popular and all the places get taken up quite quickly. Sharing shouldn't be a problem.

    December 4, 2012

  • Katalin K.

    Nena, will the date be changed? I would purchase the flight before the price goes up.

    December 4, 2012

  • Katalin K.

    Hi, I am really interested, hope someone elses will be signing up, to pair up for roomshare!
