The time a beer at 6 turned into an all night pub crawl

And yes, we recruited a bunch of Russian guys on the way. One of them even ended up sending me love emails, for some reason. I know, I am such an upstreamer that I give out  my email address instead of my phone number.   Advertisements

How to get an Uzbek Visa in Moscow

So in the spirit of solidarity to all travellers and future travellers who live in the lovely city of Moscow and are about to embark on the endeavor of getting a tourist visa to Uzbekistan, I’ve decided to share my experience and hopefully give some time-saving, stress-saving, trip-saving tips!

The time the party ended up on the Red Square
