Only one train left- one of the fastest trains in the world (Bullet train from Beijing to Shanghai- 300KM per hour). At this point I am a bit touristed out, and plan to take Beijing slow and drink a lot of tea, visit Chinese traditional gardens, and write and mail postcards. Of course though a trip to the Great Wall. #trains #travel #transmongolian #trainberd #maps #travel

The train is so cold right now and there's a rumor there is no coal to heat the train until October. So everyone is staying huddled under wool blankets wearing many many layers trying to stay warm. A bit like camping - at 50mph. #transmongolian #notasglamourousasitlooks #trains #travel #russia

I may have overpacked food for the #transmongolian but I will not go hungry! Thanks to happy vegan grocery store in Moscow for helping me stock up on vegan halva and google translate helping me read labels in the grocery store in Poland! #trains #veganfood #vegan #vegantravel #travel #notasglamourousasitlooks #ramen

Sometimes you need to improvise for a good shot. Shooting time lapses on the trans-Mongolian railway with the #delkinfatgecko suction cup tripod, black fake fur and a bit of washi tape. #transmongolian #trains #photography #trainnerd #makeitwork

I went to 15 of the 44 national historical stations on the Moscow Metro today. It moves over 8 million people a day. It is hands down the most beautiful metro in the world, with marble from churches taken down by the communist anti religious regime instead put in ordinary subway stops. A belief that a metro as beautiful as grand palaces and museums would be equalizing wealth has led to a truly amazing experience underground. Not to mention, the trains come every 90 seconds - there are no schedules, just frequency. Photos coming... well in a week after I get off the train in China. Can't wait to show off my favorite part of Moscow... the metro. #metro #subways #underground #russia #moscow #trains #trainnnerds

They let me drive the train. Or at least hang out in the engineer's cab of a 1957 polish "Hans Bremmer" soviet rolling stock. #trains #trainnerd #trainsallover #travel #allthetrainmuseum #EU2024 #poland #warsaw

The thing about trains is that they make me as excitable as a child. I don't want to get to my destination, I just want to play with my compartment and discover little details that make trains amazing. Also I want to pull the handle for this instabed over and over. ๐Ÿš‹๐Ÿš‹๐Ÿš‹๐Ÿš‹๐Ÿš‹๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŒˆ#latvijasekspresis #trains #sleepertrain #russia #travel #amazing

Polish railways would like to inform you that there is a bottle opener under the table for all your train-drinking needs. There are no other signs in the whole compartment. #trains #travel #priorities #poland #warsawaexpress
