Itinerary Coming Together
I think we’ve nailed down our stops on the Trans Siberian. I initially wanted to stop just about everywhere, but then I realized there’s only so much I can absorb. On top of the fact that I’ll be visiting Tokyo, Shanghai, Beijing, Moscow, and maybe St. Petersburg, I’m afraid my head will explode if I try too many stops along the way. Of course, it might explode if I don’t stop, too. It’s a fine line kind of thing. But I think we’ll just make two major stops: Ulan Bator, and Lake Baikal. That ought to be enough wide-open space to keep me sane.
