Shannon has a friend who rode the Trans – Siberian with a friend last year. The two of them went all through Russia on the train and her friend has given us a lot of good tips for our upcoming ride. He has also given us a mission – he wants us to send postcards to his friend from an anonymous Russian admirer.
