take the U-train – how tina uebel travelled the landroute from hamburg to shanghai by herself

Ms Tina Uebel is telling her absolutely fascinating story how she travelled from Hamburg on Germany’s West coast to Shanghai on China’s East coast. Yes, there are probably hundreds of people doing this every day. But do they do it by train? I don’t think so!
