What is New Year for the Russians? TVs, salad and a Christmas tree. it is a tradition that seems to not be disturbed. However, if you play by the rules then life will not be interesting.
So we decided to break tradition and get away from civilization in the mountains! Wet Krasnodar left behind, and ahead I could see snow-capped mountains of the Caucasus. Snow was not much, but enough to create a real Christmas atmosphere. We stayed at the famous plateau Lagonaki.
We met New Year in the gazebo on the dock in the middle of a mountain lake. On January 1, we went to the woods and ride a snowmobile on Lagonaki.
Most importantly, even though we were far from the city and did not see the holiday the President's address, but we were together the whole family! New Year's is a family holiday:)
