It doesnt matter in what way you swirl the globe, Russia wont grow smaller and Siberia wont come closer. You only get a clue of the size of Siberia, if you cross it by bike, car or the Trans-Siberian railway.
This is certainly not the comfiest way of travelling, if you consider velocity as a luxury, but only in this way you will get to know and maybe understand Russia, its people and its problems. Never forget: The journey is the reward.
