Read on to find out about our impressions on St Petersburg and why, contrary to other travelers' opinion, we actually preferred Moscow.

Phnom Penh is mainly associated with one of the saddest events in the history of human kind - the Cambodian genocide. But now the Cambodian capital has risen from the ashes and should be looked at and admired as an interesting stop during the journey in the country.
