Having lived in Moscow now for several years, it certainly has started to feel like home. I have learnt that Moscow has much to offer; from world famous ballet performances to excellent restaurants and bars and plenty in between. During the winter months, I enjoy snowboarding at the Krylatskoe hills and ice-skating in one of the many parks around the city. In warmer months, I try to make the best of the weather, taking long bike rides along the river and occasionally pushing the adrenaline boundary by having a go at the high wire course at Fili or wake boarding in Strogino. During the school holidays, I love nothing more than catching up with family and friends, once they get bored of me once again, I indulge my favourite hobby of all - travelling. My passion started fresh out of university when I took a gap year travelling around the world. I have now visited more countries than I can remember, sampled weird and wonderful food, dived on some of the best reefs and made lifelong friends along the way.
