Best known for its unforgettable lotus flower fields, stunning Volga river sunsets, super-sweet watermelons, caviar, this town in the heart of Caspian depression wouldn’t be more than just a beautiful place if it wasn’t my sweet home.

I felt really down about not being home for (nearly) a year and this is why this trip feels more special than ever. Being homesick brings out a strange side of you.

Can anyone relate to this?

So, the feeling is unreal.

Home is really where your heart is.

In this post I’m touring around one of Astrakhan’s most memorable landmarks – the Kremlin and wearing favourite pieces from Burberry, Daniela D’Amico, Smashglam, glassesshop.com and Public Desire – just to name a few.
