Russian Banya in Winter

Have you ever seen people swimming? It’s not that surprising. Have you seen people «swimming» in snow? That’s what my new YouTube video is about!

Russians, as well as Finns and other northern nations, love to take a steam bath. Whether it’s +20°C or -40°C outside, it’s always a perfect time for banya (Russian sauna).

First time I tried banya was 12 years ago and since that time I’m waiting for winter to come as a little girl. This winter I indulged in steaming in Russian banya and wallow in snow and douse in ice water later!

How it feels to be back to your country

I continue my “coming back to your country” series of posts. Earlier you could have already read my “How it feels to go back to your country”, and got an idea how the process of moving goes.

UPD: Half a year later. How does it still feel?

And with this I’m opening a new section of my Rush Away Blog about Russia. Currently I’m here and on my Instagram gallery you can see photos of Russia and some tips, historical facts, Russian nature.

Time passes and I’m finally here, in Russia, already for a week. It was a really shocking week, full of great time with friends, exploring again my own culture and noticing tones of differences between Russia and Latin America, mainly Colombia. I have a lot to say, but will try to be short and specific.

How it feels to go back to your country

Going back home after 2 years of living on another continent, not speaking your language and being accustomed to another culture is a deal. I’ve lived so much here! In several hours I’ll have my flight to Russia and it’s just unbelievable. Yep, can’t imagine it can happen.

UPD: I’m already in Russia and here’s my «How it feels to be back to your country» post.

UPD 2: Half a year later.

Well, I believe I’ve changed a lot, but only several weeks ago Skypeing my Moscow friends I realized I had no idea how to live there.

With this I’m opening a new section of my Rush Away Blog about Russia. Currently I’m here and on my Instagram gallery you can see photos of Russia and some tips, historical facts, Russian nature.
