    Crossing the border @ Kaliningrad

    March 6 in Russia ⋅ ☁️ 7 °C

    We arrived around 12 o’clock this morning at the Russian border @ Cobetck. Friendly people and very efficient procedures. We even received a customer feedback form by email on our phone if there was anything what could be improved. They will give a way a Free Lada for the best monthly idea. And then I woke up and noticed that I fell asleep. Rob was still busy doing the paperwork and we entered Russia finally around 15:00. By the way our lady from the customs told us that we are staying in Kaliningrad, factorystreet 10. 😄Read more
