Wintery Moscow: Where People Wear Fur and Lamposts Wear Scarves

By Stangie @angiebradshaw

We barely scratched the surface but still enjoyed our sampling of sprawling, bustling, glitsy Moscow in wintertime.

First step, learning to navigate the extensive metro system. The tricky part: it’s all in Cyrillic

We could have passed the entire day inside the gorgeous metro system. Each stop has a theme, with elaborate details and moody chandelier lighting. It feels like a haunted underground

We stumbled into a sweetness overload, the annual honey festival featuring whipped honey from the Russian countryside

Of course, we indulged in a purchase

Delicious stuffed pastries, a roll of the dice with what you get inside since we couldn’t read the signs or communicate. One, lamb. The other, pumpkin. Both, delicious

En route to Paris, we traded in our varied currency collection, which included Mexican pesos, New Zealand dollars, and Thai bhat. Armed with Euros, we were prepared to snatch up the first baguette we come across!
