Ulan Bator or Ulaanbaatar is the next stop on the Trans-Mongolian train. The trip during the night went from the Mongolian border to the capital of Mongolia. I stay a couple of days in the city before taking some time to discover the inland.
After two weeks traveling through Russia, now taking the Trans Mongolian Railway. A Russian-Mongolian border control and the switch of a restaurant car it will take to get me there
My last stop on this trip in Russia is Irkutsk. I visit Lake Baikal, but she’s hiding in fog and smoke.
The 2nd leg of my Trans Siberian adventure happens on a train with tiger print. The journey, Yekaterinburg to Irkutsk, brings awareness about conservation.
The history of the Trans Siberian Railway goes back to the end of the 19th century. Tsar Alexander III began construction of the railway we still use today.
I arrived in the middle of the night in Yekaterinburg. I booked with the Art Hostel in Yekaterinburg. Now, I just needed to find it.
After the travel between London and Moscow, after meeting amazing people, after taking a break in Moscow, I was ready to board the Trans Siberian Railway!
Koen’s new journey is about to start. This time it’s all about exploring Europe and Asia. Wherever possible, I’ll be trying to travel by train or ferry. A slower way of traveling should bring a nice pace to collect some impressions and meet some people.
I travel not to go anywhere but to go. I travel for travel’s sake.
