Name A week in St Petersburg then the Trans-Siberian

I realllly want to do the Trans-Siberian Railway next year, but most of my friends this it's boring. So when I heard about this website I thought of the Trans-Siberian straight away. I want to spend some time, perhaps a week, in St Petersburg before going. And I'd want to make the train trip fun. We can take plenty of stops, stay with the locals, and do anything else mischievous that comes to mind.

Let's talk about ideas and see how many we can gather. I'll send this trip to lots of friends too and see if we can get a big group together. I think it will be much more fun with more people.

Mariann My husband and I will be doing this trip in Jun/Jul 2012. Just started making plans so except for going to St Petersburg, Moscow, Lake Bailal, Ulan Bator and Vladivostok don't know yet what other stops we will make.

Vespasia Sure. It is dangerous to take a trip in this period of time because air temperature in winter in Siberia about -50-60 C. I recommend you to choose some warmer month to take a trip :)

Tiana This sounds really interesting, but I'm not sure about the timing. I likely wouldn't be able to take a trip of this scale until Feb-March, but I'm taking notes!
