Living with a Russian Family

Image

Imagine that you rent a room from a Russian family – 

Don’t be surprised by their overwhelming hospitality. 

I can wash your clothes.

Please join our dinner. 

Fancy a cup of tea/coffee? 

Don’t be shy. 

When they make you an offer, they mean it. 

Then you will soon realize why family is so important here – 

It’s probably the most pleasant experience you can find in Russia.

About Brian Yeung

Growing up in Hong Kong, pearl of the orient, I have been exposed to many cultures throughout my upbringing, from Sushi to British Top Talents and Tetris. And yet, after my stay in Europe, Russia and Southeast Asia for study and work, I realise a lot of cultural perception and presentation are just myths and stereotypes. Exploring the real accent of a particular country and its culture becomes my agenda of traveling. I value travel as a way to discover the diversity of life choices. After all, life is just the consequence of our many life choices; the one who is aware of its diversity is the luckiest person alive.
