Irkutsk, the capital of eastern Siberia is unsurprisingly, cold. Unbelievably cold! It is also one of the most popular stops in the Trans-Siberian Express, a pleasant historic city where you can experience the best of Russian food and hospitality!
People say that Moscow is the city of domes and they are not wrong. The place is full to the brim with the colourful onions! But, this expansive city has so much more to offer than the Red Square and colourful cathedrals; especially over the New Years Eve festive time. You can cover a lot over 3 days in Moscow.
We could only spare 5 hours in Warsaw as it was more of a stop off between our bus and train journeys. However, it’s charm and history has firmly placed it on my re-visit list!
Paris: the city of love (and wine), is a beautiful, sprawling city full of epic monuments and historic sites. It charms you with the little hidden streets you stumble upon and get lost exploring. You could spend a lot longer than two days here, but I think we did well with the time that we had!
