Whenever Perry Neumann wants to visit his native country, he undertakes an odyssey: a flight from Moscow to Kaliningrad. Onward journey with a driver towards Poland. Two and a half hours waiting time at the Russian-Polish border. Drive to Gdansk. Flight from Gdansk to Frankfurt am Main. And then further in the rental car. The journey from door to door takes more than twelve hours, and that's fast. Most connections from the Russian capital to Germany require significantly more time.
