Don’t become ill on the Trans-Siberian, not unless you are proficient in Russian. Even then, you may experience a ride in a builder’s van masquerading as an ambulance – and the small matter of having to palm airport officials with US dollars to exit the country upon your recovery.
Hi, I’m Sara, a traveller, writer and editor with a long-held love for astrotourism. Here at Travel Continuum I write about the places and people that make my journeys memorable. You’ll find personal accounts, honest opinions, travel tips and inspiration, plus encouragement to try a little stargazing around the world. My goal is to make the experience come alive, whether it’s driving a 25-foot RV motorhome across the Pacific coast of Canada or observing a total eclipse of the Sun. From intriguing tales of everyday life to out-of-this-world adventures, I’d love you to come along for the ride.
