Vladivostok Tour

 8.11.14
Kristen says...

Well, the weather looked like this at one point over the weekend:
Why, yes, that is snow!
But a couple weeks ago the sun was warm when we had a delightful guided tour of Vladivostok's important cultural and historical sights:
Chris, Kristen and the Bridge to Russiky Island
How lucky for Soviet Cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova (the first woman in space!) she gets to enjoy that view every day:

We also checked out the Vladivostok train station:

And visited km 9288, the end of the Trans-Siberian railroad!

Interestingly, there is also a former Trans-Siberian steam engine at the station...

With this plaque attached, explaining that the train was part of the Lend-Lease Act! Sweet!

 We finished our trip with a visit to the Eagle's Nest Mount (our first trip back since last winter)

What a difference a few months makes!!

    1. Right?! And today if I went up there you wouldn't be able to see the bridge because of the crazy snow. Gotta love weather! :)
