Trans-Siberia – Day 2 – On Board

It took 28 hours to get to Yekaterinburg, situated on the border of Europe and Asia. The high speed train was better than expected. Besides, what good is a review on the internet if you haven’t experienced it yourself? We were blessed with electrical outlets in our compartment, clean bedding and windows. Our carriage was empty except for the two train attendants who insisted on managing our sleep and food schedule. We spent the rest of our time napping, walking seven carriages down to the dining car and admiring the frosty scenery of trees, lands and roads. By the time we passed through the Ural Mountains on the East, we fell asleep. Only AFTER we completed our journey, we realized how the train standards deteriorated considerably.
