Time online

Most of my contributions are made over weekends--so if you'd like to patrol them, checking the latest dozen in Recent Changes won't show my edits.

I normally contribute from GMT+3 (Moscow).


Docent

I'm a Docent for Russia and Moscow where I live now, and for Altai where I was born and lived until age of 17. I can also help a bit on St. Petersburg as have many friends there, and being there myself several times.

I am also Docent for Morocco, Marrakech, Santorini and Oia where I've been recently, and made tons of notes out of which only few published yet here on Wikitravel. Similarly for Hungary, Budapest, Szentendre and Eger, although I published almost all I know about these regions.

I never offer services as a guide helping you visit sights for a fee. I can only answer some questions on the destinations I am quite knowledgeable about.

Feel free to leave your questions on my Talk Page. If I don't seem to contribute for a long time, feel free to drop email (see contacts at the top of this page). IM is also possible on weekends, but I can't promise to have time on weekdays.

2007:

Personal templates

My own versions--before they become a general practice (or even set in stone in templates):


If you are from Russia, you may find ... less ... than you're accustomed to. (e.g. to compare prices for Massimo Dutti)

  • Get out:
  • How to get out
  • Where to go
  • Get in:By plane
  • Terminals
  • Connections (airlines; destinations with direct flights)
  • Airport transfer
  • Duty Free Shopping at {Airport|Terminal X}
  • Airport cafes
  • Get around
  • By foot: на каблуках; детская коляска; булыжная мостовая
  • See
    прогулочным шагом: It takes around an hour to walk up at a leisurely pace
  • Buy
  • Money (currencies + credit cards)
  • Money exchange
  • What to buy? Apart from classical tourist souvenirs like postcards and trinkets, here are some things from this region that are hard to find elsewhere, or even unique.
  • Design (see Helsinki#Design)
  • Eat
  • Main courses generally around ... (price ranges)
  • daily ..., Mon-Thu ...
  • upscale and modern
  • atmospheric place
  • Chains
  • Traditional (Region) cuisine
  • Non-(Region) cuisines
(place) declares to be "(quote)"
India: infobox listing most frequent dishes
London: what you can get for what money
  • Drink
  • club full of good-looking people
  • ambient bars
  • chilled out lounge bar
  • Sleep
  • availability is tight and prices can be crazy
  • for Santorini: it's not uncommon to be quoted over US$300/night for what would elsewhere be a distinctly ordinary business hotel going for a third of the price
