“In short, I would not recommend the Trans-Siberian to everyone. But if you are looking for a great adventure, one that takes patience, determination, and resourcefulness, then you, like me, will most likely find this journey to be one of the most enriching and engaging travel experiences of your life.”

-an excerpt from the travel article I wrote about taking the Trans-Siberian (which will be published soon – my first published article!)
