Travel Update

Posted in Trans-Siberian by talikas on May 14, 2009

2 weeks and 1 day before our trip. We are still struggling with our visas, 1 down, 2 more to go. Slowly putting together our travelling gear and it appears that I have more or less everything except medicine, nice travelling trousers, a tent, a sleeping bag, a knife, a headlamp, sugar for the horses, Vana Tallinn for border guards … So, to tell the truth, I only have a bag, a pair of woolen socks, a compass, a weird stick for making fire, and the Trans-Siberian Lonely Planet travel guide. No vaccinations done yet, and now it’s already too late anyway. 

What else do I need?

    Piet would probably tell you “ok, but where is your bicycle in all that stuff?”

    I would tell you “huh..? You don’t take some chocolates?” ..Kidding ;)

    And you would have told us “..and what..? You don’t take a camera with you to take pictures?”

    Whatever you won’t have with you, don’t forget to take some smiles to give to the people around you, all along the journey !

    Toilet roll. You can use it as a bargaining tool when it all runs out :)
