We’ve put down a deposit of £50 each for the Berlin to Moscow & Trans-Mongolian tickets! The tickets only become available for sale 60 days before the departure of the Trans-Mongolian train and 90 days before the Berlin to Warsaw leg, but Real Russia have reserved our places.
The tickets should be in our hands towards the end of Jan 2013!
The next step is the visas. Belarus, Mongolia and Russia are all quite straight forward and China shouldn’t be a problem as long as we have proof of at hotel/hostel book for at least our first night there. Hopefully everything goes smoothly…
Meanwhile, we’ve been following http://www.robohorse.tv/. Check it out.
