Okay, being honest, I'm not exactly sure how rail passes work. When they say "5 days" of travel, are they talking about days literally? If a trip takes two or three days, is that how it counts against your pass? And, this is hypothetically speaking, let's say I went to a place and the trip only took an hour or two, I got there, looked around, and hopped on a train to some place completely different, in the same day. Is that one day? And is the pass a card? Will someone have to mail it to me? (I'm in Russia, see, and the postal service here isn't exactly the Pony Express.) Or could I just pick one up somewhere, personally?
