It's booked. My trans-Siberian adventure will begin May 15th. Beijing to St. Petersburg and back in 3 months. Russia, China, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan (except...if you talk to my mom - I'm not going to any of the 'stans).
The plan is simple: wander, explore, simplify and experience.
I will start in Beijing and work my way through the Trans Mongolian segment through southern Russia to St. Petersburg for the White Nights Festival. Then back down through the 'stans through Western China (to see the pandas!). That is as close as I get to itineraries.
Finally - freedom in a backpack.
71 days but whose counting.
