Tour: Transsiberian Railway
Highlights of the trip: There very many – The trainride from Moskva to Irkutsk, absolutely the camp at the Ger in Mongolia, and the horse ride – it was fantastic. Also the stayover in a small fishing village near Irkutsk was very nice, and the tour round Irkutsk was brilliant – I liked the lokal guide Demitri very much. But of course not as much as I liked Ekaterina :). The Great Wall was of course perfect – and I walked all the way up – which I didn´t do the first time I was there. I very much liked the hotel in Beijing too – it was the perfect place – in the Hutong area and near the good spots. Ekaterina was – and I have been on many journeys – extraordinary, she was full of good humour, she was able to gather the group although there were differencies, I had the pleasure to share room with her in Beijing, because it was a good solution for me and my friend, she was flexible – she was very well equipped with necessary things – when you needed it. She was at the top.

Tour: Transsiberian Railway
I was completely satisfied with everything on the journey, and I can only recommend our guide Katia and Penguin Travel in the highest degree! It is difficult to pinpoint highlights but if I must, I think I would mention our stay at the ger-camp, closely followed by the wonderful experience of walking up and down that busy hutong-street just outside the Yan Dong Hotel. I really enjoyed myself!

It became the worst nuclear disaster in history and resulted in the deaths of hundreds of people and the evacuation of about 110 000 more. Ever since then it has been a subject of an...

The Silk Road: now and then

   “The Silk Road” is a term that conjures up fairytale-like images of long camel caravans travelling through bare deserts, of brave adventurers and merchants bargaining in exotic oriental markets. This network of routes, which stretched about 11 000 km (7 000 miles) and connected the East and the West, is a milestone in the development of the modern world and the...

The Little - Known Pyramids of Sudan

Can you name the country with the most pyramids in the world? Nope, it’s not Egypt. The country which holds this record with more than 200 pyramids is actually Egypt’s southern neighbor – Sudan. Though not as big as the Egyptian ones, they are just as impressive and have just as intriguing history, dating back to 8th century BC, to the kingdom of Kush. There are many reasons...
