Who ever thought about traveling to Siberia? When I heard I could visit the Altai Mountains in Siberia I got excited straight away, but I confess I too thought Siberia was all about freezing temperatures and snow. In this article about traveling in Russia I will show you the beauty of the Altai Mountains and tell you what it is like to go on a road trip in the Altai region.


As part of my trip to Siberia I had a layover at Moscow Airport Sheremetyevo, the main international terminal for visiting Moscow. Unfortunately I had only a couple hours and the city center is actually pretty far away from SVO airport. Therefore I decided not to go for the Moscow tourism spots but to roam around the airport for you in order to find the best Russian sim card for tourists.
