Irkutsk to Moscow

A travel blog entry by beakerage


... off and a guy who spoke a bit of English and a girl who spoke no English got on. We had our two minute noodles and spent the rest of the evening chatting to the guy about Russia's soviet history. By the time we had woken up, the English speaking guy had departed so it was just us and the girl. We communicated by sharing some of our chocolate and tea and she shared some of her mini croissants (a Russian favourite for trains) and almonds. That evening we took a ...

Resolving Shashlik Regret

... fluffy things that look more like Dad and Jo's pets than working dogs. Weird. After arriving at the Mongolian/Russian border at 5.30am, it wasn't until 3.30pm that we departed, but then the miles rolled by.

A travel blog entry by johnlucas

We departed on time from Perm at 10:11pm local time on 16 Feb 14 and were scheduled to arrive in Irkutsk at 7:27am local time on 19 Feb 14. That's a long time on a train. We passed the time doing the blog, watching ...

Last day in Commieville

A travel blog entry by almightyg73


... lads at the place gave me a lift for a 'reasonable’ amount of Roubles. The station was pleasantly deserted and I found my train waiting there ready on the platform.

Once on board there was a massive contrast to the train I had travelled on from Moscow to Irkutsk. The train I had used then was the direct one from Moscow to Vladivostok and it showed by the sheer volume and diversity of locals on board hopping on and off at the small stations and villages along the ...
