Petersburg last year, I decided to purchase one of those digital travel scales in order to weigh my luggage.
It’s a useful device because by weighting your luggage before checking it in at the airport, you can save money in overweight fees.

In the peak of winter, it’s common to experience at least a foot of snow (and often much, much more).And if you’re in northern Eastern Europe (e.g., northern Russia or Baltic states), the days become very short and you can completely forget seeing any sun at all from late October to late March.Apart perhaps from Antarctica or Siberia, I can’t think of a more depressing part of the world to spend the winter.The stores I visited sold all kinds of luggage, but not a digital scale.
