I was given a memoir by a cousin whose father was hired as a "raft worker."  He helped take timber from the forests in Lithuania to a port by working on a raft about 1892.  It is the only time that I've heard of floating downstream to get to a port city, but he describes crossing the Russian-German border and having his passport approved.

I think that there were lots of ways to travel, we just don't know about all of them!
