Hi Brent We are at the end of our journey in Edinburgh we trained it all the way from Beijing to here except we flew from Helsinki to London.
10000 kms It was the greatest experience and a wonderful time,
the two Mrs Sheridan turned out to be (Miss sisters .) and we teamed up and all looked after each other.
The St Petersburg extension was well worth while as we saw Swan Lake at the Hermitage theatre and our guide Lucy was spectacular !!!
Thanks for all your help and I would recommend this trip to every one I know.
Best Regards Keith. ,
