This Photo Friday from St. Petersburg, Russia was submitted by our new Managing Editor, Katie Aune.
Katie attended the inaugural Meet, Plan, Go! event in Chicago in 2010 and then joined Career Break Basic Training to make her career break dreams a reality. In August 2011, she quit her job and departed for a year of traveling and volunteering throughout the former Soviet Union, including five weeks in St. Petersburg, Russia.
The picture above was taken from the tower of the Smolny Cathedral in mid-October – a perfect time to catch the leaves changing colors in St. Petrsburg.
You can follow Katie’s adventures on Katie Going Global.
