We hope you didn’t pack your passport away because it’s time for us to take off again! Dust the white sand from Costa Rica off and put on your warmest hat and pair of mittens, we’re heading to Russia.

Russia is the largest country in the world, takes up 1/8 of the entire world’s landmass and covers nine different time zones. Due to its tremendous size, it borders more neighbors than any other country in the world, along with 22 different bodies of water. Russia is also the home of the oldest mountain the world, the Urals, and the deepest lake in the world, Lake Baikal. Its expansive area allows visitors to travel from volcanoes to tundras and deserts to glaciers, and every other landscape imaginable.
