Magnificent Moscow in Oryx Magazine, Qatar Airways

Anaïs Nin: “We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.”

It’s nice to relive travel memories. My “Weekend Away in Moscow” was published in this month’s Oryx Magazine for Qatar Airways. If you’re not traveling on the airline in September, you can take a read of it here:

“At 867 years of age, Moscow shows no signs of slowing down. Rather, the sprawling metropolis is an energetic international hub, buzzing with 12 million residents and ranking second in the global billionaire stakes. This fascinating city is a melange of glitz, glamour, and a rich cultural heritage.” Read more: weekend away – Magnificent Moscow – Europe – Oryx In-Flight Magazine.

Here are some of my own pictures to accompany the piece.
