Hi Everyone, I just returned from a great cruise that visited Sweden, Finland, St. Petersburg, Estonia, Poland, Germany, Denmark, and Norway.    I normally do a little synopsis of my tours on this blog but a 15 day tour is a bit much so I am included a few pictures for you:

Russia    Soviet era apartments,  a canal next to the Hermitage, The Hermitage Winter Palace, and Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood

.  

Tallin, Estonia    Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, St. Olaf’s, and good friends taking a little break.

      

Our regular blog will return next week.
