On The Train Through Siberia

I’m finally doing something with all of the videos I took on my Superheadz Harinezumi camera; you can see the other ones I made here (Manitoba Skies), here (Travelling Through Southeast Asia, though I want to re-edit this one so that’s it shorter and with better music), here (My India), and here (The Mulvey Flea Market). All of these ones were taken in Russia in October 2010, when I took the Trans-Siberian train with my mum. My many thanks to her for such an amazing trip (and for being such a patient videographer).

Lorra Fae, the song is “Apres Moi” by Regina Spektor!
