My trip to Siberia, Russia

As was mentioned a few weeks back I was planned in for a trip to Siberia, Russia.

 When telling people about this I received a few remarks, as for example:  It is cold!…. Gulag!…  Criminality!…Aeroflot!…Security!… etc.

I must admit I did not know what to expect myself. 

In my eyes cold it was as the temperature  was between -6°C and -17°C which in my opinion is cold. 

Gulag… Not where I was and Siberia is amazing big. 

Criminality! We were informed by our contact when arriving , this is something you can see in movies.

This was something which was correct  during the 90th but nowadays it is gone and no more criminals there as in most normal European cities. No danger to move around.

Then about Aeroflot who have not any good name floating around, everything claiming from bad old planes and we should not talk about bad service.

Here I must say, this is absolute not true at all. Modern planes and friendly staff exercising an excellent service.

I have nothing against airport security… But for the security on Russian airports I don’t know if I shall cry or laugh really.

From the airport entry doors at Moscow Sheremetyevo (SVO) and until you are through security as in most airports we had to pass four security scanning points. For us who stayed one night at Hotel Radisson Blue we had our first scan already leaving the hotel. From here we was able to walk 50 meter until the next scanning point. Then a new 10 meters before the check in counter! After this the normal security scan came straight after emigration which was smooth and quick.

When it came to people we meet I can only say that they have all been friendly and really nice to meet. It was as well interesting to talk about all kind of topics for example education, environment, politics etc. 

When it come to the job I was there for… Yeah it was really good prepared and went much more smooth then we have seen since long, we can just give 5 ⭐️ on that one. We could finish up before schedule as well.

As it looks next time I will travel to Russia seems to be in April and I must say I am looking forward to see everything in spring too.
