The long-awaited holiday season has arrived, and Russians are reaching for the sea. For some reason Russian tourists have a bad reputation at resorts, but in actual fact they just know how to relax.
A beach holiday is generally thought to be passive — sleep, eat, drink and sleep some more. That’s not so. Some try to keep in shape. Try for yourself.
Summer is a good time to discover a new sport! Don’t pay attention to what others think. As folk wisdom says: if they spit on your back, it means you’re ahead.
No one knows what lies around the corner — or who will suddenly occupy the vacant chaise longue next to you. It just might be the woman/man of your dreams!
Don’t miss the opportunity to astonish your chosen one with your suppleness and grace.
Or if that doesn’t work, pretend to drown.
After that, it’s all plain sailing: a bit of light flirtation, a double mojito, and dance till you drop.
The April bloom is bad for hayfever sufferers, the October gloom for manic depressives, and the January cold for everyone. Only during the so-called 13th month of the year is everyone right as rain. That month is called vacation. Annual leave in Russia is usually 28 days.
The main thing is not to overheat.
Those who can’t afford a trip to the seaside can go out on the tiles at home in the village.
