We’re in the last hour of the longest domestic flight in the world, and it’s been a pretty shaky one. Suddenly a snow-covered volcano pops out of the grey clouds outside the window, seeming really close to the plane, but as fast as it appeared, it disappears again. Just a glimpse of what we can expect for the upcoming days. The excitement grows as we realise we’re almost there, after 20 hours of travelling. From Dusseldorf in Germany on a plane to Moscow, then a crazy taxi drive from Sheremetyevo International Airport through the city to Vnukovo International Airport to catch the eight-hour flight we’re now on to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.
