Russian Totality: Couchsurfing the Trans-Siberian
This is an exploration of Russia through permanent curiosity and an effusive sense of humour. Finding laughs, loves and learning is only the beginning as we work to uncover what it is to be Russian.
Including over 100 pictures taken at the time, this story truly takes you along for the journey into the heart of Russia.
We journey from the Gulf of Finland in St Petersburg to the Bay of Amur in Vladivostok. This is a purely Russian expedition on the true Trans-Siberian route through the Urals, Siberia and into the Russian Far East. Visiting Moscow, St Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Novosibirsk, Irkutsk and Vladivostok. In each city we stay with locals that are a part of the global Couchsurfing community and discover what it is to live with and like the Russian people we meet.
We will witness a Total Solar Eclipse, discover the Russian outdoor pubs, swim in Lake Baikal, launch a volley of fireworks in a city park, train for the Russian national sport, paint a fence at a dacha, drink too much with crazy Russians on the train, be lost in cities in the middle of the night and fall in love with the country and the Russian people.
