I'll miss Moscow. It's an incredible city where you'll never be bored. It was really relaxing for me, since I'm on my own there is no one else who can decide for me what I have to do. I've seen the Kremlin, which is absolutely beautiful, and experienced Moscow in my own way. I've actually had a revelation here in Moscow, yes indeed. The reason why I wanted to travel. It's not really about where I am or what I see. It's more about the people that I meet and understand their way of living. That is actually what motivated me to couch-surf. Have you ever heard about it before? You can request to 'surf' someone's couch who has offered their place for someone to stay. It's a beautiful concept because people who are connected by it are all open-minded. It enables you to make friends all over the world and to really understand a culture. That's exactly what I wanted to achieve here in Russia. So I've asked some guys to stay with them in Yekaterinburg and in Omsk as well and I've been accepted both times! So that means I'll actually be staying with Russians who live there, how awesome is that? That's not all of it yet though, I've met this Argentinian guy in my hostel who was there only for the weekend. Really great guy and we've had some interesting discussions haha. Last but not least, I've met these Chinese students who I've helped obtaining their train tickets to St. Petersburg since they didn't speak any Russian. They're from Beijing and by the time that I'm there I'll have already some friends there.
I'm currently leaving Moscow by train, obviously Platzkart and I'm feeling really good. Even if I wasn't sure about everything when I left, I now know that this was the right decision. There's no one else in my coupe so it's really calm right now. I'm social person sure although I don't mind the occasional solitude. I'll probably have different ideas about that after several weeks of Siberia though. I'm curious to see the beautiful Siberia, no worries, that's exactly what I'll see the next twenty five hours.
