Even in our fast-paced, jet-setting modern times, it's still possible to embark on a slow and adventurous journey from Europe to Asia. Take in the majestic palaces and museums of St. Petersburg and Moscow, gaze into the endless expanse of Siberian grasslands and forests, ride Bactrian camels up stunning Gobi sand dunes for a taste of the nomadic lifestyle, and stroll the ancient and modern streets of China's sprawling capital, perhaps finishing with a trip to the Great Wall.
Join Dan Perry and Katie Lepak as they discuss one of the world's great train journeys, including when to go, how to cut through the red tape of obtaining a Russian visa, and how to travel this awe-inspiring route on a small(ish) budget.
