My life in Russia: Bobby Rome from Virginia

"My life in Russia" is a video blog about English-speaking expats living in Russia. In this blog, we present Russia from their points of view - how they adjust to local habits, how they adapt their everyday life, how they make friends.

Bobby Rome is a professional football player from Virginia. For several years, Bobby has been living in St. Petersburg playing for St. Petersburg’s “Vikings”.

Bobby’s wife Gabrielle was the one to convince him to move to Russia:

"I wanted him to pursue his dreams, because I know he has a lot of potential. I had to try to push and convince him... 'Maybe we should take this risk, maybe we should take this leap of faith and go after it? We only live once, why not take full advantage of it?'".

As Bobby says, it was one of the best decisions he's ever made.
