A virtual trip with the Trans-Siberian

Ever dreamed of going on the Trans-Siberian railroad? Google has cooperated with Russian Railways to create a video of the entire trip. If you’re having trouble sleeping, check out the massive 150 hour footage of birch forests, train stations and more birch forests!

It was quite entertaining to revisit the godforsaken train stations, when it is possible to fast-forward past them. I especially enjoyed having a look at the places I missed while sleeping on the five day journey.
