This is the first part of my holiday photo diary series, I went on a royal Caribbean this august and I wanted to share my experience, and outfits, so here is my photo diary for Saint Petersburg, Russia.
We were in Saint Petersburg for two days, it was the highlight of the cruise, in my opinion. For the first day in saint Petersburg we went on a walking tour and the weather was really nice - it was about 23 degrees Celsius and I wore my Dorothy Perkins petite skinny jeans which I love, my H&M black trapeze top (sale) and my trusty La Redoute brown ballet flats which were so comfy - we did a lot of walking!
In the morning we went walking around the field of mars where the eternal fire is, we walked around some streets/souvenir shops and we went to the spilled blood church which is just incredible - we went inside and it is so brightly coloured and breath taking. We went to a gorgeous restaurant afterwards, the décor was amazing and we had tea and Russian pastries. When the first tour finished we went on another on which went on the Russian metro (we went on three royal Caribbean tours in total over the two days because we didn't want to buy visas, so you had to book tours). The metro in saint Petersburg was a little bit scary because there was a lot of people and we were in a group with a guide - it looked a bit strange but I am glad we went on it.
The second day we went on a coach tour which was also really good, and I am glad we were on a coach because for some parts of the day it rained a bit. I wore a white tee, my Topshop Pippa jeans (very old, they don't even make Pippa jeans anymore unfortunately) and my asos aviator jacket which I love and I am so glad I took a jacket with me because even in august it was raining and fairly chilly! We drove past places such as the hermitage/winter palace, saint Isaac's church, the ship that signalled the Russian revolution and other buildings/statues.
I loved saint Petersburg and I definitely want to go back to Russia!
