reflecting on the view from my train crossing Siberia

I spent about six weeks traveling around Europe, hanging out in Budapest with family and friends, and taking the Trans-Siberian railway from Moscow to Ulan Bator, Mongolia. I returned to the States via New York in order to visit my dad and pick up my car for the long road trip back to Austin, Texas. These are a selection of some of my favorite photographs from the trip.
