Put on Your Coat – We’re Traveling Across Siberia in Winter!

We’re a British/American married couple who love to travel. From January-March 2018 we spent almost 10 weeks traveling from Hong Kong to London, by train. Follow along as we explore China and Mongolia, take the Trans-Siberian train across Russia, and finally travel through the Baltics and Europe back to the United Kingdom.
