Following the discussion in this thread
, I am posting this poll and am looking forward to your feedback.
ABW TRIP TO RUSSIA
The cost of the trip will comprise of:
- Cost of the air fair (b/w $650 and $800 roundtrip if booked in advance)
- Visa fee ($100)
- Cost of roundtrip train fair from Moscow to St. Petersburg (approx. $100)
- Accommodation (from $50-60/day)
- Meals (from $40/day)
- Excursions (around $20 pp per excursion)
The route would start in Moscow. Depending on the duration of the trip, the stay in Moscow can be anywhere from several days to a week. Then - a train trip to St. Petersburg. Can be substituted by plane, but you won't see any of the country then. The train ride from Moscow to St. Petersburg is only some 5 hours, and you can see the country (not just the two biggest cities, which are very capitalistic) then. The stay in St. Petersburg can also be anything from several days to a week (depending on peoples' preferences).
I am offering several options to choose from in this poll. Choose the duration of the trip (from 1 to 2 weeks) and the time of the year (winter 2006 or summer 2007). If you are not serious about your choice, please do not vote
. We do not want the voting to show irrelevant results, as some of us hope that this planning will result in a real
trip. So thank you in advance for taking this seriously.
be affiliate grants from AM Navigator
to help sponsor the trip. No definite decisions have been made about the conditions on which to award them yet, but if
we are going, grants will range from a couple hundreds of dollars to full sponsorship(s) of the trip.
Well... I guess, this is about it. Feel free to ask questions and of course, vote (if your vote reflects what you seriously think about the whole plan and your part in it).
