I'm a 21 year-old male from Wales, UK, and I'll be catching the trans siberian train from Moscow to Beijing mid May 2007, aiming to leave Moscow on the 12th. It's part of my overland journey to Singapore. I've heard there's not a hell of a lot to do whilst on board, so I'm looking to see if there's anybody thinking of doing the same journey at that time.
If so, contact me!
I'm thinking of getting on the trans-siberian at about that time, at least as far as Irkutsk then probably wander off eastwards - Baikal, sakhalin, Japan, Shanghai ,Tibet Nepal kind of thing.
Have you already booked a ticket? I want to improvise as much as possible but don't want to get stuck at waterloo! Don't suppose you speak Russian...
Better warn you though, I play a mean hand of poker!
Im doing your exact trip in Sept/Oct. Are you going to keep a blog? i'd be interested to see how it all works out.
