Subject: Big thank you
It has been a while, and I’m back in Australia .Reflecting on how good
my train journey to Europe was. There were many highlights. Meeting
local people ,living their culture is probably one of the bigger ones.
But nothing would be possible without your perfect planning .I just like
to say to you, and all your contacts. A big Thank You. It surely was a
trip of a lifetime. Regards Max

been operating a wide variety of programmes into Russia since 1989, starting
with university language study groups. As Russia opened up we introduced;
Russian train journeys at a real
price. We were the first to introduce homestay accommodation.
pay more! Same bed, same cabin!
In 1939 Winston Churchill made his famous
statement that “Russia is a riddle wrapped inside in a mystery inside an
enigma”. Come and find out for yourself
Since then we have organised;
white water canoe trips into the wilds of Siberia
sent individuals and guided groups across Russia on the
magnificent train journeys
varied special interest groups
continued to pioneer new routes.
We were the first to
explore the BAM Trans Siberian route - previously closed to foreigners. We
explored so much that our colleague, Athol Yates, wrote the definitive guide book for this
route - BAM Trans Siberian Route - which has been published by "TrailBlazers"
in the UK.
Trailblazers also publish the classic guide for this route, "The Trans
Siberian Handbook". Following this success Athol was commissioned by BRADT Publishing in
the UK to write a book for their rail travel series called, "Russia and the Ukraine
by Rail". To top it all off our research team was asked by TrailBlazers
to update their own ‘Trans Siberian Handbook’! All this experience results
You will also note our name is referenced in most of the
guidebooks relating to these areas. In fact we have helped many of the
guidebook authors travel around Russia.

catching up with friends Marie has found a reasonable eating venue, with
live music, in CENTRAL Moscow!!
I have found a GREAT
place to have lunch in Moscow - well - not me of course -
but my best friend - she knows all the cool places and she
took us there. It is about 3 min walk from the Church of
Christ the Saviour - the one opposite Pushkin's Art Museum.
Really good prices - there were 5 of us, we had a main
course each plus 2 beers and 2 prosciuttos - it was about
RUB 2800 - about 70 AUD for lunch.
The also play jazz and blues there. The site is in Russian
(use a translator) but they do have an English menu.
