Russia

Enroute – Moskova

After agood nights sleep, we started early in the morning to catch the train to Moscow. I guess I officially record the coldest I have ever been. -34 it said at the station. The run to the cabin froze my… Continue Reading →

Windy in Ekaterinburg

We were walking out to grab some lunch, the wind hit us hard. All of us ran for cover and grabbed the essential clothing to counter the wind. I guess now we are ready to see the sights on offer… Continue Reading →

Protected: FRUIT Salad on the Trans-Siberian

There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.

Arrival at Ekaterinburg

So the first 2 legs of the journey comes to an end. Heavy heart leaving Irkootsk and looking forward to more fun at Ekaterinburg. We logged in to The Hyatt, a particularly exensive but equally nice hotel in the heart… Continue Reading →

Losing sense of space and time

The trans-Siberian is an epic. As it is with epics, it is difficult to place oneself at a specific place and time. EE have been travelling on the train about 5 time zones now. And 2 more to go. Each… Continue Reading →

En route – Ekaterinburg

Leaving Irkutsk we are on the train again for the next 50 Hrs. The scenery has changed dramatically. A lot more snow and more leaf topped trees too. Different from the drier landscape of Siberia. I guess we will be… Continue Reading →

Vici on my mind

Vici is one of the girls I got to know in Irkutsk. I prefer to call it Irkoootsk now knowing that this is such a fun place. Seems like when I am leaving irkoootsk I am taking a bit of… Continue Reading →

Good times in Irkutsk

Irkutsk station was a bit of a cold place. Drunks walking around everywhere and very crowded. No one looks at you unless they are selling their wares, hotels, taxis or begging. It was surprisingly warmer though doing about -10c, which… Continue Reading →

Ulan ude and Lake Baikal

Coming across some bigger towns today on our approach to Irkutsk. Ulan Ude was a big town and we passed by this town (I forget the name) which was supposedly built by Peter the Great to manufacture arms. The steel… Continue Reading →

Evening on 15th

It takes a while I guess in Russia, but people do warm up after travelling a while together. There is this nice little family, a couple of cabins away, with two kids, Andre and baby Natalia. Another couple who I… Continue Reading →

Still on train

About 36 hrs on the train now. I am used to long train journeys, but this feels different. It probably is the acute difference in temperature – it is +25 inside and according to my British neighbors, -40 outside this… Continue Reading →

Train journey – Vladivostok to Irkutsk

Writing from the train now. Like I mentioned the trains are very comfortable and has a nice pantry to boot. Unfortunately, the menu is in Russian and the only thing o could order (coffee) was pretty lousy. I guess I… Continue Reading →

En route – Irkutsk

Am pleasantly surprised by the trains here. I was expecting a pretty cramped compartment with hard seats and possibly mild cushioning. It is possible that some of the trains are poor, I have no way of finding that out. However,… Continue Reading →

Vladivostok – walking on water

Walking on water? Well technically, water but realistically, solid frozen ocean of ice. We met a really friendly couple who were taking a romantic evening stroll. Imagine a nice evening stroll during subset at -15c. Well I was freezing even… Continue Reading →
