Hi! I am Alex Markovich. I am a 35 year old male and live in Belgorod, Russia.
For more than 15 years I travelled throughout the expanse of Mother Russia with specialists from abroad, accompanying & assisting them as an interpreter; my primary missions have been in the spheres of Agriculture & Academia. References available upon request.
For the past few years I have been toying with the idea of utilizing the knowledge & experience which I have gained from these endeavors & starting my own niche hospitality travel site for those interested in a cultural immersion experience, which is best discovered in the hamlets & villages dotted throughout the countryside around the Belgorod Region.
Although my emphasis will be on the rural experience, traditional tours are also available.
Being, by inclination & experience, an experienced photographer (click here to get to my Photography Blog), rest assured you will return home with a warm pictorial record of your journey, to savor for years to come.
This is Olga, my partner & life companion.
We live in this recently built house which is located on the surburb of Belgorod and is near to a gully and a meadow where we love to go on a picnic or to take pictures.
Our friends sometimes come here to paint in the open air.
Obviously, most of you will chose to stay in more traditional lodgings, such as a hotel and join us for daytime activities, but we do want to provide you with the option to lodge with us (on the second floor) or if you prefer a more rustic experience in a tent, either in our yard or a nearby forest and/or meadow.
Olga is a great cook, knows lots of recipes and will treat you to traditional Russian foods, with the vegetables from our own garden.
The payment for services is done on the basis of “how much you chose to pay”, a relatively new concept adopted by a few select restaurants in Europe and the US.
All the money collected will be used for building a banya in our yard.
