This week I thought I’d dig back and post a Reheated from our Russia mayhem. Jumping on the boat back in 2009 with Tony and hitting Estonia, Helsinki, Stockhom and St. Petersburg was an epic, light filled, adventure. It made sense to heat it back up this week with all the recent Russia news and because we finally made heads or tails of our YouTube channel. It’s all organized and pretty now. Check it out.
The pickled beets and cabbage above was crazy delicious. Think Russian style kimchi. It’s worth pointing out we waaaay overpaid for it after being taken advantage of at the market (Video 1).

Let’s leave it at that, like we did most of what we ate in Russia. Best to not try and figure out what it is but just enjoy the tasty.

This week I grabbed a few friends and when back. However…Continue reading...

With little English spoken and the Russian mafia with there hands in everything, Kelsey, Anthony and I ventured out to find the local market, eat some wild, wild, game and explore the ancient architecture of the czars. With 2 days to explore, I had to break Russia up into 3 parts. Part one, above, is most of day one. But, with almost 24 hours of daylight it was hard to decide when day one ended and day two started.Continue reading...
