Yep, trains with most high price are very good and comfortable, so it will not be a problem. But traveling 7 days within a cheapest train is total hell, at least in Russia,dunno how about Europe.


Not even I am crazy enough to do it just like that. Maybe the second time around, when I know the route better. :D

Ok, small update: Got my vacation approved:

2012-06-16 to 2012-07-08

Planned dates for the trip updated in the first post; now I'll need to fight with the Russian authorities for the visa ... seems they have some silly requirements (I need an invitation from someone in Russia for private visa, or else need to hire a tourist company? What? ...)

You might have to ask Melvin or somebody else here on the forum. Tourist company visa is way complicated.
Melvin just needs to say to the authorities that you coming over. That the easiest way.
Else Touristcompany will ask you lots $$$$ for that visa. Afterall its Russia :P

To buy the visa is not expensive, I got it for 20-30 euro or something. I dont remember more. But when you are in Russian, you have to register your visa at the post office, so better you have a friend what do it for you, or you know very good russian=) or the tourist company do it for you, but then it cost more. To get the visa is not complicated and also not expensive as many think.
In total with Flight I payed 350 Euro with return. I bought my ticket and visa at a russian tourist company.

I highly recommend you buy the visa, then you have the visa in 1-2 weeks without problems, without know russian and so, its to difficult. So better pay the 20-30 Euro and you have 0 stress. And a friend when you arrive russian, I think you have also what do the register at the post office, need 10min =)

When I was in Russian my friend register the visa at the post office, I even made 1 more Flight to an other city (sochi) from moskow but this ticket my friend payed=).

Dont forget drink kwas=))) and be rdy to drink a lot of vodka and eat fishships. I was in Moskow 2 weeks and in Sochi also 2 weeks.

I can try to help with visa registration (I've never done it before, but I can try).

P.S. Kwas is really good, but I don't like vodka...

Ok, so 2012 didn't work out, timing problems. :( Sorry.

I'll be on vacation "off the internet" anyway - from Sunday 2012-06-24 until Friday 2012-07-06 in Japan, driving around the place and visiting whatever strikes my fancy.
