Engaged in Moscow

Everything about the day (June 25, 2016, Engaged in Moscow) felt so normal: Brunch with family and friends, mom and I got our hair done, spent the afternoon at the park watching the sunset, went home to walk baby Priscilla before dinner, and a casual dinner on Lastochka near the park we had been at all day. […]

You will put on headphones and take off […]

Kremlin – Red Square Tour

There are many things to do in Moscow and many tours to take, but one that I recommend doing first is a tour of Kremlin and the Red Square. The word Kremlin means strength or fortified city. There are two types of tickets you can get for Kremlin on your own: One to visit the exterior grounds […]

A Fun Night Out with Friends

Tonight we decided to go out for a casual dinner at Balzi Rossi so we made early reservations, but then we invited a friend and ended up staying later and having a mini dinner party. That turned into us wanting to visit another friend at his club Duran Bar, and then that turned into everyone […]

It is an underground tour in a number of tunnels. At […]

I love every restaurant we have been to in Moscow. They all have an English menu, the service is always amazing, there is alway a coat check, the bathrooms are always as clean as a 5-star hotel, but this place Syrovarnya has something special! This cozy, hip restaurant developed by the Sundukovy Sisters has a lot […]

Karaoke at ROYAL ARBAT

Karaoke at ROYAL ARBAT is hands down the best place for karaoke in Moscow. It’s open 24/7, and they have back-up singers working around the clock so your karaoke singing actually sounds (kind of) good. It’s also perfect for when everyone wants to take a break from singing – the back up singers just sing and […]

La Maree

George and I decided to meet up with his long time friends at La Maree. When you walk in, the first thing you notice is the beautiful interior design and the nice live music. After being seated and looking at the menu, it was hard to decide what I wanted because everything sounded so good and I must […]
