Ireland to Japan Overland

02 May 2015

For the last few weeks, I’ve been travelling overland from Ireland to Japan, by train, boat and bus.

For my own reasons, I decided not to write any blog posts about the trip. It’s been a great trip and I’ve finally reached Japan.

I have a few days left here and then I fly back to Ireland. After taking five weeks to get here, it will feel really strange to cover the whole distance back in two short days.

To anyone considering a trip on the Trans-Siberian railway all I can say is just go for it.
