Our flight to St Petersburg



Departing London Heathrow on a grey murky day.



Interesting cloud formation off the Dutch coast.



Approaching St Petersburg.



The Peterhoff Palace - which we would be visiting a few days later.



The Peterhoff Palace on the Gulf of Finland - note the long avenue from the palace to the small harbour.



How the other half live No 1 - newly rich Russians - village on the right, golf course on the left.



On finals for St Petersburg's Pulkova airport.



Landing at Pulkova.



Ready to disembark....



.... for the short journey in rush-hour traffic to our ship - berthed alongside the Viking Akun.



Our cabin....



.........say cheese ........



.... and our verandah (not necessarily photographed on the first day!)
