This is me standing in front of a replica statue of Minin and Pozharskii (who saved Moscow from Polish and Lithuanian invaders around 1611), a Russian Orthodox church, and the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin (the walled fortification with a tower in the background).

I am a senior studying Russian, French, and International Relations at the University of Florida. Since about 7 th grade I have wanted to learn Russian, and two years ago I was finally given the opportunity to start doing so at college.  I believe I am able to bring a fresh perspective on travel advice and cultural differences as I myself experience them while traveling around Russia. My five article posts will be on practical travel advice (monetary transactions, getting around the city, and miscellaneous advice, respectively), cultural differences, and breaking down stereotypes of Russia and Russians. I welcome any feedback or comments you may have!
