Smoked salmon and caviar for breakfast - yes please!

I was very fortunate to visit Russia in March,  St Petersburg and Moscow, as part of a group of Travel Professionals invited to 'experience' the country and what it has to offer to the foreign tourist. 

It was such a wonderful opportunity and a huge contrast from Thailand where I had been 2 weeks earlier.  

In St Petersburg we stayed at the Four Seasons,  a 19th century Palace which still retains the feeling of something very special.   The quality of the rooms, service, fabulous food and overall atmosphere was that of elegance.    

I had always wanted to go to Russia and for me it needed to be snowy,  I can't explain,  it's just what I think of when I think of Russia.    The night we arrived there was a blizzard with huge fluffy flakes of snow.   Late in the evening we walked to the Winter Palace and The Hermitage museum, the second largest museum in the world.  The snow made it so magical.  It was very quiet as the snow fell and the whole area in front of the Palace was untouched, it was so beautiful.  

It's a particular moment when you travel that will stay with you forever and make you grateful that you have the opportunity to experience something so wonderful.
