Dannielle & Di’s Travel Diary

Friday, 21 Sep 2012

MapO my, the overnight train from Moscow to Novgorod. It all started out well.... We made our beds in our 4 birth room of the train and headed down to the dining cart for a drink. 2 beers in the blokes next to us buy a bottle of vodka as a gift! How thoughtful. We were game! We cracked the top & shotted the lot. I went back to the bar for another (2- one for our new friends). A game of Canadian cards later.. and the 3rd bottle. There was blood over the table. Red Fox accured a major vodka/shot glass injury. Wobbled back up to find our rooms, had a quick 1 hr sleep then off the train at 6am. After our guide tried to wake us up, Red Fox was speaking Russian.. Who would have thought that she would be fluent? Anyway, a great way to get over a major hangover is a 2 hour walking tour of the city. Not Red Fox and Brown Wolf's finest hour.
Novgorod was celebrating its birthday, A little like Australia Day without the blow up pool and Triple J's hottest 100. Instead, 3 outdoor concerts and a pretty amazing fireworks display. Or was it a celebration of the arrival of Red Fox and Brown Wolf?

Train to St Petersburgin the morning.
