Josi’s Top Tips: Surviving Trans-Siberian train journey

When embarking on a journey by train there are a few things that you need to ensure are readily accessible as your rucksack is usually stowed away for the majority of the journey.  

I have captured the things that I think are most important to have to hand below: (this is based on our journeys of between 6 – 37 hours)

  1. Essentials: Money, passport, ticket!
  2. Camera
  3. Flip flops
  4. Toiletries including toilet paper, toothbrush & toothpaste
  5. Tea bags
  6. Hand sanitizer
  7. Book, diary & pen
  8. Head-torch
  9. Sleeping bag liner
  10. Food & drink: Bottled water, fruit, salad, chicken, bread, chocolate – our food staples! Small snacks to share with others as a good ice breaker!
Bonus: Patience & a sense of humour!
