London to Bangkok by Train in 9minutes and 30 seconds

I was listening to Rush’s 2112, feeling inspired after recently seeing the new Rush documentary, “Beyond the Lighted Stage“, and the song “A Passage to Bangkok” made me wonder whether it is actually possible to travel from Europe to Bangkok today by train. Well, turns out it is – this guy has done it and you can watch his journey in a 9 minute film. His voyage isn’t exactly on “The Bangkok Express” mentioned in the Rush song – he passed through Moscow and Beijing on his not very direct route. Quite an adventure!

  1. My educated guess (which you’ve just confirmed :op ) is that of course it’s possible – through making a series of connections through regional trains.
