What is travelling for me? It is the shining sun, the sea; The golden sand which look like beads; The blue-eyed sky and tender breeze. What do I see when close my eyes? A milk-white ship with two red stripes; The limpid clouds at the dawn And sun, that rises all alone… And when the twilight falls from height, The night appears from heavens gate. I see the moon in magic light, And stars, that sparkle at the night. Thats what Im looking for in dreams, And they are my inspiring beams! I want to see it, to behold And travel all over the world!

Crime Many tourists have to contend with a high level of petty crime when visiting the major Russian cities. Pickpockets and purse snatchers are frequent guests of popular tourist spots.
