Reaching Yekaterinburg was a real milestone for us. As the city is situated where the European and Asian continents meet, it meant that we had reached Asia without leaving the ground. Our first night did not get off to a great start because of our accommodation situation.
Day 2 was a lot better though as you will see in our Yekaterinburg Vlog below. We had hooked up with a Russian and two Americans that thankfully were staying in our “hostel” too. We spent a wonderful day wandering around the city and then we headed to the monument where the two continents meet. Unfortunately, we did not know that there are two monuments. One is a smaller replica of the main one. Guess which one we ended up at?
Oh well, it was still a fun day. Thinking back to being in Yekaterinburg, I now realize this was the place when it dawned on me that we were going to be travelling for a significant time. Up until then it felt like we were on a long holiday but after Yekaterinburg, it felt like life.
