My trip to Russia this time was short and sweet.I usually visit Moscow twice a year for three weeks or so but due to my varsity schedule this year I could only go for ten days.So I packed my bag full of presents and warm clothes and off I went.
In my ten years of travelling I was lucky enough to never experience one thing- a delay. My planes have always been on time and I got to my destinations with plenty of time to spare and shop around. But this time, it was not meant to be. My connection from Dubai was an hour and a half and due to Emirates delaying the plane from Johannesburg by an hour, I did not make my flight to Moscow. I was supposed to leave Dubai at nine in the morning but ended up only leaving at six that evening.I was given a visa and a hotel room where I enjoyed some spicy spring rolls and attempted to do some sight-seeing. It was so incredibly hot though, all I could manage was a couple of minutes outside.

When I eventually got to Moscow, I spend the first weekend with my family. My brother just went to the sixth grade and he is getting so big so quickly!

I spend a lot of time with my mom which was great and we took some outfit photos (see here) and enjoyed delicious Russia food.
