  • Was able to relax with her sister and instead decided to fly to Goa to Kamchatka. And it was the best solution, because anyone here visited the falls in love with life! It seems during this 6-day trip we have lived for ages, full of unforgettable impressions. Complete unity with nature when you're alone with snow-covered volcano, when raskatyvaesh new ground without thinking about the time when the whole world wait. Bathing in Malkinskih sources when huge snowflakes dancing in the air and jumping in metre drifts of fluffy. And here's half an hour and the sun warms us and posing for photos. And meeting with the ocean, where the only music huge waves violated the silence of the universe. And a lot more of all that does not describe it in words! Kamchatka is love)

  • Managed to come here twice. Peninsula is beautiful at any time of the year, it fell in love with my youngest son and now he's already visited there four times. Travel is not cheap, but these emotions do not get anywhere else.
