Mark,

It was my second trip to St. Petersburg, but the first was taken during late October 2008 when the weather is typically not so good (unless you like cold rain). So this one was much more enjoyable as I was able to add Catherines Palace and enjoy the city with some sunshine.

So my advice to anyone lurking out there and considering to visit the city, definitely do not pass up the opportunity, but try to do it in the May to early September period.

Vinny,

It's all just part of an effort to nudge your search radius a little further to the north [wink.gif] .

My first time to St. Pete was in februari, when it was so cold that the camera had distorted pictures. God I loved it there, the cold/snow/ice really gave it that more romantic feeling than any other city I have been to.

marvellous

The adventure has ended and the hard work has started as I'm now officially married. I still would not recommend looking for someone overseas, despite fully enjoying the experience and finding someone who is just right for me. Also, once she (your future wife) arrive, for some reason you no longer have time to spend much time on forums which I guess is a good thing...

For now, I just want to say hello to those out there in cyber world and on RWF as it's a far friendlier place than others like RUA where the owner and his buddy seem to be more concerned with protecting their potential profits from a questionable (IMHO) company.
