Meet Tikhon

4.  If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be and why?

I would like to travel to Japan or to the USA. For the USA, I would like to travel all over the country, visiting all the states there. And for Japan, it’s quite an interesting place as we can see a synthesis of western and eastern cultures there.
