The couple both shared a glimpse of their travel experience amid the strict COVID-19 protocols. Steven revealed they had to take two long flights as there was no direct flight to Russia at the moment.
The 90 Day Fiance dad shared a photo at Tayakadin, Istanbul, Turkey, where they had their first stop over. The family of three looked relaxed as they waited for their next flight at the airport.
Olga took the chance to buy some presents for her father, including some Turkish treats. Their son, Alex, also enjoyed the stopover as he visited a toy store at the airport.
It’s unclear how long the 90 Day Fiance couple will stay in Russia. It’ll be the first time they will travel there again after quite a while.
Steven shares travel mishap that almost cost them their Russia getaway
Meanwhile, Steven Frend revealed they almost missed their flight due to an unexpected mishap. The 90 Day Fiance celeb said they experienced something “bizarre” at the airport.
Steven revealed that when he and Olga presented their passports and COVID-19 reports, the immigration staff asked for their marriage license. The reality star said he didn’t know it’s a requirement when traveling to Russia so he did not prepare it in advance.
The 90 Day Fiance couple was so worried that they will miss their flight because of this. Fortunately, when Steven checked his backpack, their marriage license was actually there.
Steven was so surprised to see the document because he didn’t know it was in his folder all along. The family of three managed to push through with their trip successfully.
