Continuing my archive postings from the backbacking trip from Helsinki to Hong Kong through Siberia and China in 2005, here are photos from the four days along the Trans-Siberian railway route from Moscow to Irkutsk. Mostly just idling and watching the Siberian plain scenery pass by. Intermediate stops at the stations only lasted about half an hour, so no chance to see the cities. The essence of traveling, I’d say.
