30 days because these are the days you get as a tourist in Russia.
As always we don’t have a specific plan but a rough idea of the dates and places we will visit as well as the return flight on September 3.
This afternoon at 13h we will take the bus at Estacio del Nord to Madrid Barajas and from there we will fly to St. Petersburg. In St. Petersburg we will spend 3 days and be hosted by a guy from couchsurfing. Then we will hitchhiking to Moscow where we will also be hosted by couchsurfing and stay about 2-3 days. After visiting the city, we will finally beginn the Trans-Mongolian Railway journey, through which we plan to make a stop in Yekaterinburg / Novosibirisk or Omsk / Ulan-Ude (with the obligatory visit to Lake Baikal) / Ulan-Bator and being back at Russian territory and from where we fly home,Irkutsk.
In Mongolia we plan to stay there a week living on a Mongol farm working as volunteers in exchange for accommodation thanks to workaway.
To have the tent always with us gives us the chance, to sleep at any possible place. The amount of parks, grass places and fields, where we theoretically can build our tent is infinite. When we thinkt, where already slept, it seems impossible, to have been brave or lucky enough, to having slept at these places.
Dear family, friends, acquaintances and curious, finally! one of our wishes comes true, we can finally and digitally share everything that happens to us as we travel with those who might sometimes wonder: where are these now?
We hope you enjoy reading us while getting to know what we have done, what we are doing and what we plan to do as much as we enjoy sharing it. Let’s start!
