So The Train Journey Begins…

Tell you what, Beijing Railway Station is manic. Can’t imagine how it would be at Chinese New Year.

Luckily we had some help as we booked all our train tickets through MonkeyShrine, a tour operator that specialises on the Trans Siberian route. A nice chap met us at the flag pole outside the station and took us all the way to our cabin on the train. I’m sure we could have made it on our own but we would have had a few rows before we made it.

We’re off on the Chinese Railway

So here we are sitting on the train, we have electrity sockets for our devices and a stunning view flying by us. We still need to pinch each other to prove we’re actually here and doing it.

Next stop Choyr, in the Gobi. Not sure we’ll have internet after this so will have to update in Ulaanbaatar.
