Okay I don't mean to lose you- but think of it this way Siberia is more mental a state of mind so to speak.
Back in 2011 Mental Floss did a little piece about Siberia, which is where I got started on my idea for my next series...Siberian Paradox. Of course some thing s have changed since 2011, some things are further explained as scientists and researchers began to understand the unexplained...however this is my inspiration.
And I'm running with it.
Be sure to check out the article linked above it's a super short read and very thought provoking...below is my favorite sentence from the article. Tell me in the comments what your thoughts are on Siberia...I'd love to know.
"It appears on atlases as a region but is unconnected to any specific placename; it's more a state of mind. The word itself in Russian -- Sibir -- seems to connote, with its sibilant ess and a rolled-r brr at the end, a shiver." ~2011 Siberia: What's in a name?
