Moscow is an amazing place. Half the city is attempting to westernise itself with huge shopping malls full of make-up and fashion shops that no one can afford to buy and the other half still exists on near empty grocery shops where what ever is for sale is locked behind metal grates. Toby and Sarena spent only a short time in Russia and most of it was experienced from a train window passing through Siberia.

...Visiting the Kremlin
A visit to Moscow can not be complete without a visit to red square and the Kremlin. Just days into our journey Sarena nearly got herself shot after treading over a red line in the queue to see the embalmed body of Lenin. read diary

 

 

 

...Riding the Trans-Mongolian through Siberia
In at the deep end and stuck on the smugglers end of the train. This was an unforgettable 5 day ride through the endless Siberian forest of silver birch trees. Living with the Mongolian smugglers for the entire journey made life very interesting but it was a huge relief to get to Mongolia and meet fellow travellers. read diary
