It’s about time! Only a few more days and then finally I am on the long-awaited trip around the world! Yay! (Okay at first to Japan … only around half the world… . At First!)
Therefore, it is now time to reveal how the first few weeks will look like. My journey starts on february the 27th by plane from Frankfurt to Moscow. The flight will take slightly more than three hours. In Moscow I stay five days. Enough time to visit the several sightseeing attractions like the Red Square, the Kremlin, several cathedrals and so on. On the 3rd of march I will take the train to Yekaterinburg. Here I stay for two days. Besides the many historically significant buildings and cathedrals there is also the border between Europe and Asia located a bit outside of Yekaterinburg. It is marked by several boundary stones along the way. On the 6th of march I continue travelling via train to Irkutsk. Irkutsk is located just 70 km away from Lake Baikal and I will therefore attempt to take a trip there. After two days in Irkutsk I continue my travel to Vladivostok on the 11th of march . With 71 hours of travelling time, this is the longest of the tracks. And also the last. On the 14th of march I reach Vladivostok. There I can explore the city and its attractions for a couple of days before I leave Russia with a ferry towards South Korea.
