Buying Train Tickets to Russia

Now my words have been put to a physical existance. This time, in the form of a train ticket. With the help of my Russian friend I have bought tickets to the "Trans-Siberian Railway" which is a train that takes you from Moscow to Beijing. Of course I will make a few stops in between, but the whole journey itself takes a little over a week. Now, that's quite the distance.

I am also in the process of applying for a Russian VISA. It should come anytime soon, as all you need is to have the bucks and your passport is sorted. The train tickets are awfully expensive if you buy them from a travel agency, but if you get them directly from the Russian railway website.. they are much much cheaper. In total 200 dollars. Now that's cheap for more than a week in a train I said. But then I found out that it used to be half from that before, OMG!

Now there is no turning back and I am getting ready to hop on a train. My luggage will be small as possible so I can be free and enjoy not my obsessions but all the new exiting things that will surround me.

Wish me luck.
