With some of the most dramatic and beautiful footage yet, please enjoy Part 3 of the Ultimate Train Challenge video trilogy.
Ultimate Train Challenge
Imagine a week solid on a train from Moscow to Beijing, in small quarters with no showers and two people you’ve just met. Welcome to the Trans-Manchurian train!
In the first 17 days of the Ultimate Train Challenge, I covered 6 European countries and passed through 4 more. Here’s a video of my European UTC adventures!
During September, I took 29 trains from Lisbon, Portugal to Saigon (Ho Chi Minh), Vietnam. Here are some highlights from this 25,000km journey!
Guilin is a beautiful city with a thriving river culture, from morning meditations to touristy Li River cruises. Oh yeah – and rice noodles. Yum!
Visiting Beijing and the Great Wall of China is an amazing “full circle” experience for me; China was my 1st overseas trip – 18 years ago. Here’s my experience.
Despite the roller-coaster of Ukraine leaving me higher than lower, I roll into Moscow (literally “roll”) feeling pretty flat, and with a huge task-list.
Ukraine is a paradoxical roller coaster that takes me on a three-day ride I won’t soon forget. Come along!
I’m disoriented, unprepared, confused, slightly drunk, slightly scared, and without a purse to clutch on to for security. I feel totally naked. This is my Prague at Night.
What little I saw of Switzerland and Zurich is all those cliches: quaint, charming, etc. What surprised me most was how refreshingly rural life in Zurich can be.
I try to discover the “real” Barcelona, devoid of tourists and tourist traps.It’s a naive mission that proves harder than it looks, but reveals some interesting insights.
Ah, the food, the people, the ambiance, the life. In Leaving Lisbon on September 1st to commence the Ultimate Train Challenge, I have already vowed to return. (It’s just a matter of when).
