RUSSIA Map and Symbols
Mother Russia, another of my "dream destinations" that I'll probably visit next year for the first time (at least that's the plan, let's see how it goes). This nice looking map was a direct swap with Christin that sent it with three amazing animal stamps - thank you very much!
