I was just looking into train ticket prices, as I have to start buying my tickets for the final leg of my journey. So here's the deal - do I pay $257 for a 2nd-class ticket in a four-berth coupe, or do I go the Russian way and buy the $93 3rd-class ticket in the "common car"? Hmmm. I think I may have learned my lesson at this point.
I'll make up for the price difference when I buy my bus ticket to Helsinki - a whopping $10! Woohoo - I see adventures upon the horizon.
And more luggage locks to be purchased.
