A New Adventure – Trans Siberian Railway

David and I are well down the track of planning a trip to travel on the Trans Siberian Railway in July of 2007.

We see this as an adventure as this is the longest train trip in the world – over 9200 kms from Valdivostok to Moscow. We will also travel on to St Petersburg by train – another 650 kms – bfore continuing on to a few other places in Europe.

 I will try to upload a series of postcards here, but you will find most of our travel news on this site : www.siberia.djw.id.au. You’ll also find a link in the ‘Links’ section of the sidebar.
