Go on a journey through Russia and into your inner self with a voyage on the Transiberian train
Share This Article:
It has been more than six months since I travelled to one of the coldest places in the world. Many times I tried to sit down and write a summary of what I was able to take away from my journey on the longest railway line in the world, the Trans-Siberian Railway. It dawned on me however, that a true journey of discovery is not so much about exploring new lands, but new perspectives... Its main route – from Moscow through Nizhniy Novgorod, Omsk, Krasnoyarsk, and Irkutsk to Vladivostok – runs through eight time zones and is 9288.8 kilometres (5771.8 miles) in length. After months of reflecting on my experience, I dare say it is not only a journey across the vastness of Russia, but also a journey of self-discovery.
