Planning for the Trans-Siberian
2 months of travels have (almost) come to an end and we have happily arrived in Naxos, Greece. Back in our floating ‘home’ on board Linea with Mum and Dad for some TLC and to sleep in the same bed for more than 2 consecutive nights. It has been a trip of many numbers and […]Read more "Our Trip in Numbers"
1000 km travelled 21 hours on trains (and buses) We left Bosnia behind and got on the 8 hour night bus to Belgrade, Serbia.

1280km travelled. 14.5 hours on trains. After a quick – and expensive – trip to the Belarus embassy in Moscow, we were set for our train to Poland with a quick 15 minute stop in Belarus (not getting our money’s worth for our £60 transit visa!).
