Russia. I'd love to visit there! It seems like a fascinating country with a fascinating history. Plus Vladivostok is just a great name for a place, I want to go there :D

I really want at some point to go by train from London to Beijing, going through Russia, I'm hoping I can get to a point in my life where it can be one of those "holiday of a lifetime" type things and I can take 4 weeks off work to go on it (or more!). I'm not keen on flying, but I love travelling by train, it would be so interesting! I looked up the price of the train to go from London to Moscow the other day - and it was between £300 - £400, which is a lot cheaper than I expected - considering it costs about £100 to get from London to Glasgow.

Its kind of a dream, but I know it can be a reality, I am capable of saving up enough money for something like this - so its quite exciting to think about really! :)

Rubbish! You can do it for far less than that! I did it for £55 a couple of weeks ago - in first class.

Well I did think it was cheaper actually, as it cost me £75 return to go there last summer (Although that was with a young persons railcard) - but I did double check that and thats how much it seemed to be - a couple of the journeys were cheaper, but £100ish seemed to be the most frequent price. Train travel in this country is so expensive!!

The media would have you believe it is. Admittedly it's too hard to find the best deals, but they're out there, and you can get around pretty cheaply if you plan ahead a bit. I've just booked a sleeper berth from Edinburgh to London in August for a mere twenty-nine quid.
