A quick recap of Epic Journey 2: The Orient Express
View Epic Journey 2: The Orient Express in a larger map
- The total price of moving from one place to another is 1262â‚¬
- 8/10/2010 – 02/06/2011. Almost eight months of travelling. I aimed for a 9 months travel to make the journey more symbolic, but had to come back when I had to come back.
- 11 countries visited (Macau and Hong Kong included)
- I flew only thrice. Hong Kong â‡’ Bangkok, Saigon â‡’ Phu Quoc and Bangkok â‡’ Helsinki
- The longest stretch by land: Helsinki â‡’ Hong Kong.
- The most comfortable way to travel is high-speed trains in China
- The least comfortable is crappy buses everywhere. The bus from Ulan Ude to Ulan Bator probably takes the lead.
- Summer began in December for me
- I saw a little bit of snow in Siberia and Mongolia, though
