Blog changes – Изменения в блоге

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

In order to present our blog in two languages we had to start literally writing it separately in Russian and in English. From now on the original blog Travels around Great Britan published here in WordPress will be presented in English language only. The Russian version will be available at We will try our best to move all the Russian language texts onto the Russian version and translate or publish the English language texts as soon as possible.

Мы начинаем вести два отдельных блога, один на русском, другой на английском. С настоящего момента данный блог будет представлен только на английском языке. Русскоязычная версия блога Путешествия по Великобритании будет доступна по следующему адресу Мы постараемся в самые короткие сроки перевести все тексты на русском языке и перевести или опубликовать на английском языке тексты в соответствующих версиях блога.
