Another day of ticket buying and visa applying. We now have a coach ticket to London and a ticket from Ulaanbaatar to Beijing. We also have travel insurance and we’ve posted off our Vietnamese visa applications. Apparently we’ve also bought tickets for another leg or two of the trans-Siberian – they’re only just going on sale now. So, all going well, we’ll be leaving Winchester at 5.20am on 13 April, arriving in St Petersburg on 16 April, arriving in Ulaanbaatar on 6 May, arriving in Beijing on 18 May and arriving in Hanoi on 14 June.
And it’s looking an awful lot like our painters and decorators will be coming in towards the end of next week to start work on repairing the water damage. No real progress yet on getting a tenant in, but we have another viewing tomorrow.
