    This looks like an amazing adventure! I love train travel and the scenery here is spectacular, plus I’ve always wanted to explore Russia. My first train ride was three days through the U.S. on AMTRAK and it was the most relaxing trip I’ve ever taken. Thanks so much for sharing your story.

      Yes, me too. There’s just something so charming about train travel! I also done a fair share of train travel in the US but Russia was even more amazing 😀

    Wow this is a really epic train journey, like you said, it would have been better if you’d been able to stop and explore some of the places you travelled through. It sounds like you enjoyed meeting the people on the journey. I think if I went I’d prefer to pay extra to get a shower! Great photos!

    This is really epic. A train running for 1 week is fascinating. Don’t know how comfortable the journey would be. Great that you did it.

    What an amazing journey! This is a great way to see different regions of the country and meet its people. How true that in so many places a friendly gift to the conductor can get you benefits like a shower. Did you feel a little restless during the week? On a cruise you get to get off the ship to take excursions. Did you feel restricted or was there enough activity to keep you busy?

      Getting friendly always opens a lot of doors everywhere. I was never restless, it was one exciting journey! The part that you don’t have a lot of time to explore isn’t great obviously but in my case, it was fine because I stayed in Russia for a long time and explored many places so I didn’t mind 🙂

    What an incredible post and I always know I’m enjoying reading something when all I want to do know is jump on that train! Incredible photos and loved that you didn’t gloss over the good and the bad. The stats are incredible and even though we all know Russia is a vast country, until you give us the number of cities it passes in a week, you never really realise how big it is. Lake Baikal in the winter looks absolutely stunning. No showers in coach for a 1 week trip?? mmm…. not sure if I can handle that part no matter how “friendly” we get with the conductors!

    Moscow to Vladivostok is one of my bucketlist journeys. I love train journeys and this one sure is an epic ride. I was already going to do, your 10 reasons added more fuel to my desire.

    Wow. I’ve never taken a train ride more than 6 hours. I love the peacefulness. Glad to know there’s a way to get a hot shower when you’re not in first class! This was definitely a fun read!

      Yes, it’s quite cheap if you take into account the distance it covers. I know, right? I had that feeling too at times 🙂
