Hi Serge,

Wonderful Trip ...

 

Just want to thank you for that wonderful trip. Everything was more than perfect and it was a real great experience, very relaxing.

 

The gentleman from Ireland was also a good companion. He was lucky to meet me because he didn't have a right schedule from his agency in London. With his plan, he was supposed to be in the first train (from Moscow to Irkutsk) for 4 nights. I guess they did not follow up with the new schedule you gave me.   

 

I took some short videos that i am ready to share with you.  You can use these videos for clients but i'm not sure you can use them on a website because i didn't ask permission for filming people and also some time i add music.

 

Merci,

 

Carmen Gagnon,

 

Montreal Quebec Canada
