THE TRAVEL THAT CHANGED MY LIFE
Crucial was one of the many travel proposals that are received daily by email.
Among the many offers was the “Trans-Siberian from Moscow to Beijing”.
I was 16 at the time and it seemed like a dream to me, but now the spark started in my head…
I had been dreaming Russia since high school and I often imagined on the train of the cartoon Galaxy Express 999 that turned the space in the footsteps of Captain Harlock.
After my first trip alone, in Euskal Herria, I spent more than a year in alternate periods organizing this, without telling anyone about bad luck and because I knew that, perhaps out of fear, they would try to convince me to desist from this madness .
I made my passport, got the necessary visas, booked the return flights and train tickets.
Now I could communicate my summer destination.
I still remember how I described the trip at home: “I have to go to Russia…but I come back from Beijing … I cross Mongolia… I do the Trans-Siberian alone!”.
I was 25, a few travel behind.
But this is THE travel .
