What it’s Like to Travel on the Trans Siberian Railroad in Pictures
I’ve traveled a lot since my first big international trip got me hooked 6 years ago. Of all my travels I can confidently say that the most epic among them has been the Trans Siberian Railroad. When I got back from the trip I wasn’t sure if I’d ever top the intense, month long travel buzz I experienced when I was there.
I’ve certainly tried. This past year has been full of incredible trips with notable highlights including Argentina, India, and Iceland. It’s been a fun, crazy ride. But I still haven’t quite topped the combination of excitement, exoticism, edginess, and cold weather (I love cold weather) I enjoyed when I traveled from Shanghai to Moscow on a train.
I love travelling regardless of my destination, but I’m beginning to wonder if perhaps my all time favorite travel experience has already been had. I kind of doubt it, but I suppose it is possible. I know what I like and my travel style is perfectly suited to long train trips in exotic, cold places. I figure if I can’t top it, I might as well do it again… I’ve already arranged to travel back soon with some extra elements thrown in, of course. Among other differences, this time around I’ll be running a marathon across the frozen surface of Lake Baikal.
Since I’m starting to plan the trip once again, I’ve been looking back fondly at the pictures while remembering what it was like to take a train across Siberia:
