  • Lake BaikalGot a slow start today. We actually got up on time but we finished up some laundry and took it slow getting out. We didn’t get to the bus station until around 10:30 and after fumbling around a Posted by Peliroja in Trans-Siberian Railroad + Eurasian Tour | Jul 13, 2013
  • Day 3-Finally Getting Off at IrkutskWell, C fled the cabin because my snoring was too loud for him to fall asleep last night.

  • Trans-Siberian Railroad Vladivostok-Irkutsk, Day 1Only because I’m always (un)surprised by how things change from one person to the next, I checked at the window again to be sure that we did, indeed, have the tickets we needed.
