Vast and extraordinary, Russia is a truly beautiful country. With half the family born there and being a place we keep returning to, Russia plays a big role in our lives and we love it (and struggle with it too).

Russia and America are more alike than you think

I keep telling people this and I’m sometimes surprised by how many people have realised this too. They both have a big case of what I call the ‘Big Country Syndrome”.

The thing is they really are both great countries too, not just big ones. They really should be good friends, having so much in common, but I guess it isn’t easy when they are both such big places and not direct neighbours.

While much of the western world is scared of or worried about Russia, I really don’t think they should be.Russian are good people, people who want he same things that the rest of us want, a happy life, a comfortable home and no trouble!
