“Travel Is The Most Valuable Thing To Do” – May

May has just returned from an amazing trip to Siberia, Russia, where she explored the frozen Baikal Lake – “the largest freshwater lake by volume in the world, containing 22–23% of the world’s fresh surface water. With a maximum depth of 1,642 m (5,387 ft), Baikal is the world’s deepest lake. It is considered among the world’s clearest lakes and is considered the world’s oldest lake – at 25-30 million years. It is the seventh-largest lake in the world by surface area.” (Wikipedia).

  • Starting point: Irkutsk, Siberia
  • Temperature: -25 degrees C.
  • Ice thickness: 1 meter

Icy Photos of Lake Baikal

“It reflects like an optical instrument and responds to changes in the weather so sensitively that it seems like a part of the sky rather than of the land. And along with all that, Baikal is distinctly Asiatic: if a camel caravan could somehow transport Baikal across Siberia to Europe, and curious buyers unwrapped it in a marketplace, none would mistake it for a lake from around there.” – Ian Frazier, Travels in Siberia
