In case you are one of those handful of aspiring travel-writers who are living off an inheritance, married to a celebrity, or have a sugar-daddy (or mommy!) at their beck and call, perhaps you might be interested in taking a train trip with Paul Theroux for the grand sum total of $12,975.
The journey covers 4,200 miles over 14 days from June 13-26 (2009) on the Trans-Siberian Express that will take you from Moscow and will include stops in Pavlovsk, St. Petersburg, Pskov, Petrozavodsk, the Kola Peninsula, Murmansk, Nikel, Archangel, Vologda, and Uglich. Theroux will be on the entire journey and there is room for 90 travelers.
