Going to Yekaterinburg

Making a visit to my grandmother and relatives in Yekaterinburg is an every year tradition, and it’s a good one. I’ve visited them each Summer before now, when we decided to go there by a car in October together with my parents. When I was a child, I loved these family trips so much, and every time I was looking forward to them, like if we were going to Disneyland. You need about 15 hours to get from Khanty-Mansiysk to Yekaterinburg by a car (with a stop in Tymen), so it’s a whole traveling day with a lot of views, music, reads, sleep and thoughts.

See the photos from our trip bellow.

We did a short stop in Tyumen – a city, where we lived for about three years.

A little show in a downtown: hungry dogs are trying to catch at least one duck for a dinner.

We spent in Yekaterinbirg just one week and it was time to leave this metropolis and go back to our small and cozy Khanty-Mansiysk.
