What are some tips and information that a traveler to Russia should know?
don't be surpirsed if people don't smile back, if they don't greet you or are just plain rude and disrespectufl. its not because they don't like you, it is the culture. not everyone is like that of course, but most are. watch it when you cross the street, cars don't stop for pedestrians. bus won't wait for you and you will have to squish yourself in and out. beware of such things as no personal space. "personal bubble" concept does not exist. does't mean that you should break that rule, but don't be offended if people are too close to you. please don't wear knee shorts, hawaiian shirt and nike shoes all together, oh and don't forget the baseball cap! that is a ridiculous outfit in russia. it might fly here, but there you will definately get laughed at behind your back and be called a rich american tourist. idea of customer service exists in very few places, such as ritzie hotels and upscale restaurants only. at a store you won't find a friendly helpfull clerk that will be glad to assist you, they will more likely just brush you off and not pay attention until you say something to them. public restrooms is a non-existant idea, the ones that you will find are absolutely nasty, and a McDonalds won't let you use their restroom until you buy something. don't be surprised by the traffic (given you are going to a big city of course), when cars cut off the max its okay, or drive on the tracks in front of it slowing it down its okay, people will run red lights and not share lanes, definatley won't let you go if you are in the wrong lane. policemen wil stop you pretending to write you a ticket, but acutally stopping you just so that you can pay them money (if you are planning to drive there, don't suggest it.. cabs or "privately owned cabs" (carowners out to make extra money) are a better way to go.
there are plenty of things that you can bring back home, good Russian Vodka (no, not grey goose or etc) (Stolichnaya, or Peter the Great) will be a great present. Real Russian Vodka tastes nothing like american or any othre foreign vodka. now a days, Russia has everything you can buy in America. so a little something would have to be traditional russian such as (matreshka, hand sawn blanket, a realy Russian tea set etc) russian parcelone (sp?) figurettes or plate sets you defiantly won't find anywhere else. Lomonocov Parcelone is the best quality and just gourgous. I hope I helped.
When traveling in the UK (from the US) do I need traveler's checks?
I just got back from the UK and agree with the points made ... don't bother with traveller's cheques. If you are anxious about carrying lots of cash or losing a credit card, consider prepaid cash cards from Visa or Amex.
