Yes! Going to Russia starched me in different ways. i learned to appreciate and value things that i already did at a new level. Found new respect for those who do not speak english, and brought personal growth in many levels. Laurita T - Point Loma Nazarene University View Entire Review
I had the most incredible experience. I loved the city, it was so beautiful and there was always something to do. The language and people take a little time to adjust to, but it's well worth it.
