If yes, then the last weekend of September would be a perfect time for that! The reason is Translation Forum Russia that is going to take place September 26th - 28th in Yekaterinburg . I have never been in that part of Russia, but I've been reading wonderful blogs of Olga Tkachenko for a few years now ( here's the first one , and here's the second ) and thanks to her posts I became greatly interested in Siberia and the Urals. It is not exactly a popular destination for a vacation here, so I really appreciate the chance to actally see it with my own eyes and meet my colleagues from Russia and other countries. Yes, you read right, there will be people from other countries, too! So save the dates in your calendar and let me know if you are coming, I'd love to see you there!
