An American in Moscow
I loved Moscow! The people were amazing and the city was too. I fell in love with the place instantly. I can't believe North Americans are afraid of going. I went as a solo female traveler and had one of the best journeys there of my life. I would recommend you acquaint yourself of the Metro before travel via the intranet and travel sites as it was one of the most difficult systems I had ever navigated. I finally 'got it' my last day there and had that wonderful 'Ah Ha!' moment. Will go again!
Insider Tip:If you are from North America try to buy all train, airplane and event (concert, ballet, museum etc) tickets before leaving. I found some trouble in making purchases and who wants the glitches while on vacation?
