Living on board of a train

First class sleeper train is a world apart. Having a large compartment to the two of us makes the 78-hour-ride much more appealing. There is plenty of storage under the bunk, behind the seat and above the entrance. The fixed table comfortably dines two people.

Perm is a reasonably big and modern city and there were tourist routes painted in lines along pavements pointing out key buildings and areas. There was the ...

Trans Mongolian Train - Travel Blues

A travel blog entry by ch5443 on Aug 04, 2011

We passed over the Ural Mountains whilst I was sleeping, so did not get to see the point where Asia meets Europe.

The scenery remained beautiful, but had changed into meadows and we started to see the Russian summer cottages - dachas. These are places that people from the bigger cities like Moscow have land where they grow their own food, and just have a quiet retreat from city life.

I sadly said goodbye to Slava. It turns out ...

Beyond the villages there is mile after mile of beautiful pine and beech forest, the beech trees being particularly beautiful as they are bear of green leaves but appear instead to be completely covered in white flowers.

I have been down to the dining car and had breakfast of pancakes and jam and a ...
