Hi, I'm Natalya, a journalist from the Siberian city of Tyumen, in the Ural Federal District. Since childhood, I love to read, especially history and travel books. I also like to travel, and my favorite form of transport is the train. Looking out the window, admiring nature, coming up with life in the towns you pass by is very inspiring. Before the trip, I always try to find out as much as possible about the place I am going to visit. It's like a game to find a particular attraction on your own, especially when it is not included in the list of excursions. The next thing I do is to get to know the local cuisine. It is always pleasant to please relatives with some new dishes, the recipes of which I brought from the trip. But above all, I love my Siberian land, its rich history and the harsh and majestic beauty of its nature. I hope you will fall in love with it too, after reading my stories and perhaps decide to come and explore it.
