Sailing the Baltic Sea

Sunset in St. Petersburg, Russia at 11:42 p.m. Loved it

John and I were offered the trip of a lifetime and we took it. His boss called and asked if we wanted to go on a cruise to the Baltic 7 days. Umm, YEAH!!!! babysitters lined up, schedule in place, passports at the ready and we were off. Stockholm, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Talliin, Copenhagen. We were on board the most beautiful ship ever, first class all the way. We were pampered and treated like royalty.

Here we are standing at the Nieve River in St. Petersburg. The Cathedral of St. Isaac in the background.

The trip was a once in a lifetime, and we are so fortunate to be able to go. The places we visited were unbeileveable. The history is just so beyond our imagination, seeing things built and REBUILT in the 1400's. These places might not have been on our bucket list, but we are sooo glad we got to see them all. The food was amazing, the people we met were so fun and there were no computers, tvs or cell phones for a week. It was bliss.
I have nearly 150 pics, to many to post, but would love to share with you all sometime.

God Bless, have a great day!!
John and Laura
