Hi again,

Well guys, things have moved on a little. I said I would keep you informed so here we go.

I had email today from Real Russia . . . . . about my visa . . . . . [thumbs.gif] . . . approved, 30 day double entry . . . . [thumbs.gif]


Wahay . . . guess who is going to meet his girl . . . . for three weeks in July . . . and we also plan a short visit to China while we are together, hence the double entry visa ;-)

I called her today on the phone and gave her the good news . . . she shouted something in Russian and started singing . . . hahaha . . . by the sound of things she was dancing around her room . . .
[hurrah.gif]
I laughed so much I nearly wet myself. This Russian women is so emotional as i've got to know her. I think our meeting will go well [wink.gif]

I will tell you a little more now. I arrive Blagoveshchensk and then an 8 hour train journey to her town. She will meet me at the airport and we travel on the train together. All will be well.

Any help, advice and coments are, as always, appreciated.

Just a final word for anyone else viewing this that has worries about issue of visas for reasons of criminal records. I also have a record, but it has not been a problem for me . . . think positive and talk to people.

Thanks to you all . . . wish me luck . . . [thumbs.gif]

Andy,

Do not forget to take with you some small gifts.

Regarding the gifts most important is a single red rose, bought in the UK before you fly (not too sure if you can still do this, check if you can take a rose on the aeroplane with you before you go to the airport) it will not matter how dishevelled the rose is when you present it to your lady, what is important is that you brought it with you.
Second is some "souvenirs" (fridge magnets, small ornaments etc. ect. the best clue as to what to take with you follows a very simple rule of thumb and that rule is the bigger the cringe factor the better the gift as an example a miniature double decker red (London) bus should go down a treat a fridge magnet of Big Ben will also score massive points.

HTH

Yeah . . . I can think of many 'cringe factors' . . . LOL . . . I have just been chatting online with her. She says to bring nothing but myself . . . but I will have a few small gifts, be assured . . . I like the rose and will try for that one ;-)

My only worry is meeting mama . . . . I should treat her, I think, with respect . . . she did not believe I would visit her daughter . . . . I have been warned of Babushkas . . . [wink.gif]

All will be well though . . . I am sure

I would not worry about Mama until you know you have something to worry about. To the best of anything I have ever been told both with my first fiancee and with my wife "Mama" has been a big asset and wanted her daughters happiness. In fact in all the women I met in the FSU (which were quite a few) Mama never was even the mildest concern.

Andy, just stay away from babushkas in some cases, do not involve yourself and all will be just fine [lol.gif]



Have a nice trip and only good babushkas around with pirogie and pelmenie [wink.gif]

Andy,
Do not worry too much about babushka, try to win her over (a nice box of chocolates [wink.gif] ) and you will have created a real ally.

OK that is my experience

I can already hear the tapping of keys on multiple keyboards when other members are shooting me down in flames, I do offer a [whiteflag.gif] but I do not crash and burn.

Andy

Are you using Vladivostok Airlines to fly Moscow to Blagoveshchensk?

I was looking for something and came across this airline.......

I hope you have a digital camera so you can take plenty of photos of the area to post on the Gallery. [wink.gif]

Hi

Blagoveshcsk to Moscow, Vladiavostok airline and Transaero. One for DME and one for VKO.

I recomment to learn few russian words, to impress a little. At least sorry, thank you.
Can suggest travlang.com/lanuages (free with sound files).:

Dont ask for a alcoholic beverage, accept if offered, but only 1.
