    Sporen van Moskou naar Beijing (NL)

    Sporen van Moskou naar Beijing
    De Transsiberische Express

    Fons Hannes (°14-02-1963) uit het Kempense Meerhout is een doorwinterde globetrotter en reisde ondertussen door ruim 60 landen in diverse continenten.

    Hij is bij het reizigerspubliek bekend als standhouder en medewerker aan de jaarlijkse "reismarkt' in Brugge. Tijdens de laatste editie in 2002 zetelde hij als panellid bij een forum over de 'Transsiberische Express", In de naweeën van dit debat groeide het idee om zijn persoonlijke ervaringen aan boord van deze legendarische trein te bundelen en te publiceren,

    Dit boek, geschreven in dagboekvorm, is gebaseerd op waar gebeurde feiten. Het is het verhaal van een rugzakreiziger die, enkel met een vliegtuigticket naar Sint-Petersburg en een retour ticket vanuit Beijing, het transsiberische treinavontuur aanvat. Corrupte politieagenten en smokkelbendes kruisen zijn weg en de eerste kennismaking met de Chinese samenleving is op lijn zachtst uitgedrukt "shockerend".

    De auteur volgt de transsiberische spoorlijn tot in Irkoetsk, hartje Siberië. Daar wisselt hij de "Rossia", de Transsiberische Express, voor de al even legendarische Transmongolische Express die hem via Ulan Bataar, hoofdstad van Mongolië, naar Beijing brengt.

    "Sporen van Moskou naar Beijing" brengt de lezer het relaas van een globetrotter aan boord van een legendarische trein.
