‘Seat 22 – A Trans-Siberian Odyssey’: Take a Monumental Journey From Moscow to Beijing by Rail [VIDEO]

Three minutes of video covering three weeks of travel across three countries. French photographer and designer Stanislas Giroux was born in 1989 and decided that his mid-twenties was the perfect time to embark on a wild adventure.

Thus began Giroux’s incredible journey from Moscow to Beijing on the Trans-Siberian railway. Giroux packed light, bringing some clothes and the equipment he used to create this spectacular video documenting the impressive places and people he encountered.

On the video’s Vimeo page, Giroux writes of what he carried at the start of his journey:

I took a train ticket for the Trans-Siberian railway, in order to reach Beijing from Moscow, crossing Mongolia. I travelled alone with my bag, half-filled with my video gear. At that time, I didn’t knew that my ticket for that seat 22 would be the beginning of a once in a lifetime journey.
