Capitalizing on the beautiful weather, we decided to visit Peter the Great’s summer palace, located (nowadays) about a 35 minute hydrofoil boat ride away from the city center. The story goes that Peter loved to travel and after seeing the Palace at Versailles in France, he vowed to build something even grander in St Petersburg. And thus began construction on Peterhof.
I love boats. I love gardens. I love hanging out with dear friends. I love sunshine. And I love ice cream. When all of those things happen in one day, it’s a perfect storm for a perfect day.
