Travel plans getting more solid
Thursday, September 06, 2007
Okay, so a little more update on the trip.

We're going to leave here really early on Tuesday morning and eventually hitting Moscow on Wednesday morning. We have a big layover in Moscow so we're going to check into a hotel for the day to rest up (thank God) and then get prepared for the final leg of the journey.

We'll arrive bright and early in Novosibirsk on Thursday morning. We'll then be there through Sunday and returning on Monday. So we should have plenty of playtime with our little guy.

We were trying to set up some time after the trip (on the way back that is) to stop by St. Petersburg and do some sightseeing. But it's just too short of a notice and we're far more interested in just getting to see our guy. So our new plan is to just arrive pretty early on our second trip and do our sightseeing then.

    Congratulations on your referral/trip dates, finally, etc.

    Safe travels and hope everything goes smoothly.

    If you get the chance St. Petersburg is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! We were lucky to adopt from there, but count our 2 trips there as some of the most amazing vacations we have ever taken.

    congrats. I would try to do it on your first trip because you may not have much notice for your second trip either. We found out on a Thursday or Friday and had to leave that Monday. It is nuts.

    Congratulations on your travel dates. I'm de-lurking to say good luck and god speed. We had a week's notice on trip one and only five days notice for trip two. We had hoped to get to St. Pete's as well before trip two. Not.
    Our travel motto is, "Oh, well, we'll see that next time." It always leaves us with a good feeling and a desire to go back. We didn't see nearly as much of Moscow as we would have liked and we didn't get to St. Pete's at all. Now we have a reason to go back with the kids on a trip just for fun. Can't wait to hear about meeting your referral.
