Travelling on the Trans-Siberian: 10 useful tips

A long-desired trip which I’ve been dreaming about for awhile now, marked with the number 8 on my travel bucket list finally came true: that was my recent Trans-Siberian trip. And since I’ve been getting a lot of questions – questions I myself had when beginning to organize this trip – I decided to prepare a post providing useful tips and information on a variety of matters concerning the life on the train.

She made me promise that I would return soon. Easy. I had already promised the same to myself – the day before when leaving the camp at OXY. That is the hard part when leaving; Knowing that you could have offered so much more if given more time. Knowing that people are going to keep coming, needing your help – needing everyone’s help.
