Hello Sandra!

I’m Rostislav. I am 12 years old and I’m from Minsk, Belarus.

On the holiday of the Slavic traditions of Ivan Kupala on the night of 6 to 7 July, girls floated wreaths on the river. If the girl floated a single wreath and it quickly floated down the river, this meant an early marriage.

Distance travelled: 10,700 miles (17,220 kms)
