Nightmare on the Trans Siberian Railway
we took the 240E train from Moscow to Irkutsk and then the 008H Train from Irkutsk to Vladivostok. The first leg took about five days and the second four days. We stayed at the Baikaler Eco Hostel near Irkutsk, which was beautiful. The scenery on the train however was mostly Birch trees until past Irkutsk, only becoming truly breathtaking on the last two days. Whilst I certainly don't regret the experience, at times it was like some kind of never ending nightmare. When you get on in Moscow the trains are nice and clean. But the smell towards the end was stifling, and we both got ill with fevers. The worst bit was a load of drunks taking over our cabin on the first leg, so we got roped into a colourful proletariat drinking session before being relegated to the restaurant car for most of the journey .
