What You Could Get in Yakutsk for $10 – Touch the Untouched Nature and Lifestyle in One of the Coldest Cities in Siberia

If you think you’ve never heard of anything about Yakutsk before, then worry not… You’re not alone.

In fact, the first time I heard about Yakutsk was when Nicolas and Lena from Trips to Siberia reached out to me as they wanted to contribute for the $10, covering this city. As I’m writing this, I literally just googled about Yakutsk and I found out that the temperature could reach up to -64° Celcius during winter.

Dude, I totally can’t imagine how cold it could be around there as I get so used to hot weather. Blame the Southeast Asian in me who get used to tropical weather around here. 😛

But anyway, it’s only fair to start seeing how far you could go with $10 USD in one of the cities in Siberia. Also, this is gonna be the first city in Russia covered in the series, yeay!!

11 Random Facts About the Countries in 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia and Some Smartass Prediction: Group A & B

Hi everyone! 😀

In case you don’t know about my obsession over football, you could first check out my previous post about the hot football players in 2000s that made me glad that I hit the puberty back in the days. But since we’re now counting down the days to the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia, I want to have a special feature for this big event.

It’s because that I started my obsession with FIFA World Cup years ago as well. I remember I got this booklet with a lot of information about football and the countries that played in the tournament.

And for exactly the same reason, I want to have a similar feature on my blog. However, since I’m the queen of the random stuff, I’ll create this feature to be as random as possible. After all, I’m the kind of person who shamelessly asked my skinhead friend how far he washed his face and whether he used shampoo or soap to wash his head.

In case now you’re wondering about the answer, the answer is that he still uses shampoo to wash his head since soap formula is not so good for the scalp that may cause unwanted dandruff.
