I am home and organizing my wonderful memories of Russia and traveling the Trans-Siberian rails in winter. It was quite an interesting experience, as all travel should be. I traveled with Yvonne, my friend from Switzerland, and my iTouch. Rather than the complete text sent home via Siberian wifi, I will post a few summaries of the stops along the route from Moscow to Vladivostok.
We traveled to Russia in March. Every Russian told us it was the worst winter in decades and certainly we saw snow while there. They used heavy equipment to load and truck it out of the cities. But it also added a beauty to the scenery.
