Train Ticket back Home to Russia and that cup of coffee…

Tomorrow I will spend the day trying to get a train ticket back home to Russia. It is not an easy task in Kiev and they will try to rip me off as they always try to do. There never seems to be enough seats to go from Kiev to Moscow. There is always a ton of seats from Moscow to Kiev, but never vice versa…

That is my thinking’s, as I sip a great cup of coffee, this morning…

It is never easy and always an adventure. They always try to give the most expensive tickets to people first and you have to dig to get the cheapest tickets that you can. You also have to watch out that they will try to put you in a top bunk, even when there is tons of lower bunks. I only travel bottom bunk and I have had to argue many times over the seat I want…

I will leave early tomorrow and hopefully all will go well and smooth…

In Moscow it is easy to get a ticket and it is all done by Internet. No hassles and no arguing. Here in Kiev I only seem to find outsourced ticket sales and they want a fortune for first class. I want cheap cheap cheap and no class… 🙂

I take my own food and water. I want the normal life people, not the rich life train riders…

Sveta says that she is being shown almost full trains come back to Moscow on the 13th. I will then try the 14th if the 13th is full. That will be the fun of the struggle to get tickets. I know that they have tickets available. There is always several empty seats on every train that I have ridden and I have ridden many trains in Russia and Ukraine…

Speaking of trains: The news was announced yesturday that the Russian Rail Service is trying to get all long distances trains to be available with WiFi…

Now that is just plain cool. Life just gets better and better as I travel Russia…

Windows to Russia…

PS: MOSCOW, August 4 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Railways Company plans to start offering Wi-Fi Internet on long-distance trains shortly. The company’s Vice President Mikhail Akulov said “this task has been set to the Federal Passenger Company (a subsidiary of Russian Railways) and we will solve it.” “We are using solutions that will allow us to offer this service on a broader scale on long-distance trains,” he said. Wi-Fi Internet is now available on some deluxe commuter trains, Sapsan high-speed trains, and on Express and Krasnaya Strela express trains that run between Moscow and St. Petersburg.
