Russia travel plans... [Feb. 5th, 2007|12:29 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
[Tags|, , ]

FYI: I'll be in Russia Feb 10 - Feb 25, departing here early Friday, Feb 9th.

That is, if I can get invite/visa stuff figured out in time. (visanetwork.com's working on it...)

I also wanted to hit FOSDEM in Brussels (for xmpp interop event) on the way back, but it might be too late for that, unless my Moscow ticket is a no restrictions fare and it's easy/cheap enough to change.

Then I get back for a couple weeks, go to Belize diving for a week, come back for a day or two, then go to Tokyo.

Yay travel!

what to wear?

In Russia you need heavy and long blazer (may be with feather - "пуховик"),
woollens (or fur) cap, gloves and warm boots.
Good luck!
Are you planning to come to Saint-Petersburg?

You have to buy a ticket to go to Moscow? How disappointing. I was hoping you had an experimental folded paper aircraft built from a tiny fraction of the $100 bills you got from selling out to Six Apart!

Moscow doesn't look like Russia. I can tell you from seeing quite a few russias in my life.

I just get a one year visa each year and let my visa agency handle everything. Want me to pass along my agency? You should be able to do this just once a year.
