    German traveler Winfried Langner completed an incredible journey to St. Petersburg in his vintage 1961 tractor.

    "I came to St. Petersburg because I wanted to get to know the country and the people who live here," he said. The 81-year-old man reached his destination in central St. Pete on July 4 and presented the flag of Lower Saxony to the city administration;s representatives. Langner admitted that people in Russia were friendly and helpful, despite the language barrier. "I can't put into words the feelings that I am experiencing right now," he added.
