lol Mustafa. I shall have to tell my other half she has the big balls as it was her idea that we do the trans-siberian railway for our honeymoon.

While we're talking about the old USSR; has anyone here been to Pripyat? I enjoy a spot of urbex and would *really* love to spend a day in a city abandoned 20+ years ago. I hear there are tours and am looking for recommendations as to which operators are good/bad and who will allow a fair amount of freedom to wander. Are there any tours of the more industrial parts or was the town purely accommodation?
