Moving On

We are now coming close to the most challenging - but potentially most interesting - part of our trip: the Trans-Siberian Railway. We're feeling a little apprehensive about what it's going to be like, but also looking forward to getting some serious travelling under our belts after our jaunt around Europe.

But first we have to get to Moscow, and to do this we are travelling by bus through Poland, Lithuania and Latvia, with a change of buses in Marijampole. It's not as direct as going through Belarus but we would have needed a transit visa, which would have meant more expense and time to arrange.

This means our schedule for the next ten days looks like this:

21 May: Leave Berlin, 22.00
22 May: On bus
23 May: Arrive Moscow, 10.00
24 May: Leave on Trans-Siberian, 21.35
25 May: On Trans-Siberian
26 May: On Trans-Siberian
27 May: On Trans-Siberian
28 May: On Trans-Siberian
29 May: On Trans-Siberian
30 May: Arrive Beijing, 14.04

Ouch!

Wow!! That's a long time to be couped up on a train,but on the other hand you are going a fair distance through many countries. Lots of distractions games i feel such as eye spy or battleships or indeed anything else, to pass the time.Lots of scenery flying by as you whistle past. You'll both have to get a hat to look the part and fit in + matbe a bit the dancing after a few Vodkas or other beverages. That's a bit of a nightmare swapping transport business. Moscow hopefully will be exciting and a very different experience for you. Enjoy and stay safe!!!! Maybe you could do a Russian Where's Wally, more is need for the collection! Xxx
