I did a similar trip a month after you, without the detour to Mongolia, and have been preparing a RR but now that you've done yours I don't need to publish mine: you have better pics and a more...

Northern Russia: Perm-Kotlas-Pudozh

Have driven through Russia (European side) twice and will do it again early next summer.

To avoid big cities and not to ride the same roads again, I'd like to do it higher up in the woods,...

It just says (off the cuff) that heavy transports forbidden from the road if air temperature exceeds 32C. -I drove through there last July but must've missed it. Fortunately it was not that hot so I...

keep it coming. You've driven through places like Dagestan that qualify as 'war zones' on the briefings of some security consultancies. -You see, I'm aching to do a similar trip myself but need a...

A great RR. The pictures are just outstanding!

In Sidi Bous Said near Tunis in Tunisia, all the doors of the town are painted blue. There the explanation is that the colour keeps the flies away....

Nizhny Novgorod is the first place where I realised what taiga really is. Since Jektarinburg I'd been driving in the forests, sometimes hundreds of kilometres but somehow I hadn't seen the forest...

Beginning of the end: return

Gardening in big cities is apparently a big thing nowadays. My hotel was no different. At least lettuce was fresh.

West of Tyumen

Just before Tyumen, at the town of Yalutorovsk, I thought I'd seen something special. It was so special that I had to stop and take a picture some kilometres later when leaving the town: they'd...

In case you wonder

why I seem so excited about barren landscape and snow-capped mountains is that it's something I'm not used to seeing every day.

And thanks for your kind comments. I didn' know what a challenge it...

Laugh Descent from the mountains

Now, this is a trivial detail if any: I remember that we had pull-off caps like this when I was young, in the 60s but that they were quickly replaced by other types of caps.

Riding from Gorno-Altaisk to the Lake Teletskoye was absolutely the best thing so far: a decent road going around and up and down green hills, what else can a man ask for? Views were not spectacular...

the world is flat

I started in the morning at half past seven and the air was still hazy after the rain of previous night but it cleared soon. A bit too soon for me because I had put the raingear on. The Rukka suit...

Volga, Volga,

Volgograd would not have been on my list of cities if I'd been asked to choose. As I was here, seeing the sights was maybe not compulsory but there was practically nothing else to see. The architects...

It gets warmer

As I couldn't go any further South from where I was, it was time to try East again. The ferries from Kerc on the Eastern tip of Crimea to Kavkaz in Russia leave on two hour intervals and I wanted to...

Siberia, it is still there

As I had arrived late, the right thing to do was to make the night symmetric and I managed: I was running at 06:10, to enjoy the relative coolness of the morning: it was already 18C.
