Making Progress!!

We have traveled on 2 out of 4 flights for the day! We flew out of Birmingham early this morning to Atlanta to New York. I'm sitting in the gate area now in NYC and everyone around me is speaking Russian! It's so fun! I can make out approximately...three of the words I have heard. Ha! By the way, did you know that when you fly to Russia (maybe other countries?) that you have to get a round black stamp on your boarding pass at the gate before you can board? You learn something new each day...

Also, there is a family traveling to Volgograd with us! We met up with them in ATL and have enjoyed our journey together thus far. We are getting ready to board our flight to Moscow (10 hour flight then a 6 hour layover before our connecting flight to Volgograd) - so до свидания!


  1. So excited for you!!! Have a wonderful trip!

  2. EXCITED!! Hope the rest of the trip is this great!
