We are Ovi and Vika (37 and 31) and we have gathered the courage to embark on a journey to the Wild Wild East (Russia and its Siberia), mainly driven by curiosity, but also by the need to detoxify our minds of the current political turmoil in the U.K., where we have been living and working for the last 5 and a half years, so we had a look at the map and decided that a journey across the vast territory of Russia will be very beneficial in that respect.
Vika and I speak 5 languages between ourselves (including Russian) and our curiosity does not stop with self discovery
The plan is to put together a mini-movie of us interviewing some of the most interesting people we will get to meet and ask them about their reasons for travelling on the Trans-Siberian and what they are hoping to experience or to achieve.
We want to challenge ourselves to complete this journey across the vast territory of Russia and while doing so, we are hope that we will meet some of the most amazing people who will be traveling on the Trans Siberian.
We will start our travels in Daugavpils, Latvia on the 20th of September and the first stop will be Saint Petersburg, Russia. Our journey continues with Moscow where, after exploring the city and making some provisions, we will embark on the actual Trans-Siberian journey. The Estimated Time of Departure (ETD Moscow) is 28/09/2019
If this is something you would like to support, we'd really appreciate your help with making this project happen. The suggested amount covers the technological upgrade that we need for our interviews and an occasional coffee/vodka that we will offer to the people who take the time to answer any questions.
