Thank you SO much to all for your very helpful comments. This is my first solo trip and I truly did not know what to expect. Your comments have been comforting, as I am not outgoing and was concerned a bit about the “on your own” time. I’ve been doing research about what to do when not with the group, but it’s good to know there could be other single people to eat and tour with at times. Thanks again to y’all.

    Hi, Thomas. It's nice to meet another traveler who likes Eastern Europe! I was a Russian language major in college and spent a fabulous summer of 1969 in the Soviet Union on a study tour. We spent a month in Leningrad, then several days in each of Moscow and Kiev, and a month in Baku. (So, I get to check off "Russia, Ukraine and Azerbaidjan" as countries that I have visited.) In 2006, 13 of the 24 of us had a reunion -- we met in Finland and took the train to St. Petersburg, where we were lucky enough to visit the dorm we lived in while studying at Leningrad Polytechnical Institute. Some of the group went back to Moscow from St. Petersburg, but I came home. I have thought about taking the boat trip from St. Petersburg to Moscow, but don't want to support Putin's economy. Where do you live? I'm in NH now, but just over the MA border. It's essentially a Boston suburb, and I consider myself a Bostonian, because I grew up there.

    No longer a one-hit wonder! It looks like you’re going places.
