And so, it was time for us to leave St. Petersburg.
Our ship pulled away from the dock at 11:00 pm . . . (yet look how light it still was that evening!)
We sailed off, comfortable on deck, wine glasses in hand. . . saying goodbye to St. Petersburg. . . and Russia. . .
and into the MOST BEAUTIFUL sunset of the the entire journey
ON! To Estonia!
And now. . . A Special Travel Contest!
In Russia, my sister and I purchased several sets of Matryoshka dolls for ourselves, our families, and our friends.
I happen to have one unclaimed set . . . the little set shown above . . . so I decided to offer it as a prize to my blog travlogue readers!
Here are the rules: Leave a comment on this post or any of my remaining travelogue posts (brace yourselves -- I still have Estonia, Visby, and Copenhagen to go!) for a chance to win this little Matryoshka doll set. I'll announce the winner on August 10.
If you can't think of a comment to leave, just answer this: "Where in the world would YOU like to go?"
