Back Route My travel Tips Library Links

The web is certainly an indispensable resource for the planning of this travel, to complement and to upgrade the traditional guidebooks. In this page I've listed, according to my own opinion, a selection of the best sites scattered on the web, considering that you can start from them to surf around and find almost everything you need. I've also deliberately not mentioned links to travel agencies which, very often, don't give any useful information and make definitely high prices.

 

Home pages

bulletHerbert Groot Jebbink - It is said to be the best internet site on the Trans- Siberian. Many, many links (some odd), travelogue and some pictures. In English and Duch
