Man, I have this rock feeling in my stomach because I know I can't go.  :'( :'(
If the trip was in summer, that would solve one obstacle but the others: My age and my weekly allowance of $5 isn't going to get me far!! :(
But it's cool that I think Bob mentioned some people did it last year and they wwent to a lot of places.
This  would be cool(like explained on the first page)
Petersburg
Moscow
Tobolsk
Yekaterinburg
then the Crimea.
It would be cool if we took the same route the Romanovs did when they went from the AP to Tobolsk.

Hi All,

I'd like to know the status of this trip as well; we are starting to make our travel plans for the year and if the trip is on I'll save the money.  Can someone please give us an update?

Thanks,

Sarah

This would be such a great trip! I would love to go.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely, in a pretty and well preserved body; but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "Wow ---- What a ride!!!"

I have just returned from 3 weeks in China and am  starting to plan my return to UK/St.P in Sept. Would like to co-ordinate that with an AP group tour. Is this still a possibility ?

Robert, no one has ever heard about this  trip in months, people have asked, and no one responded!  Thats pretty sad. Vacations need to be planned.

Know what you mean. I am planning my return  for the last week in Sept. Would be nice if this co-ordinated, but no big deal if not.

I just got back from China, should stay home for a little bit. But sure, would be fun to have company.

If there ends up a tour next summer I'm game.  My parents said they'd send me somewhere to celebrate my acceptance into whatever university I end up going to.  Haha.

I'm wondering if this trip is "on" and when as well (since I started the thread back in December -- sorry, I know everyone - including me - has been busy!). ;D

If we're looking at the summer of 2006 (or even 2007), that's more feasible than THIS summer (since summer "officially begins" on June 21).  

Bob -- if it's a type of thing that you want someone to do research and make the arrangements (and a lot of people look like they've done that already), I'd be happy to throw my name into the mix.

If you want, I could arrange the visas and hotel through the travel company of my friend. She had account in U.S.

I have been helping Bob arrange the visit to the Alexander Palace.  

Due to a sequence of unforeseen circumstances, the proposed date of September 2005 is not possible.  

Please regard the visit to the Alexander Palace as postponed rather than cancelled.   We will post on this thread just as soon as alternative plans can be made.

Thank you.
