Margus and Kariina, I just saw this posting for a freelance travel photographer, and immediately thought of you! Perhaps you can negotiate for a new GS at each location!

Abso_fuc*ing_lutely inspiring

I've found your ride report just few weeks ago. I've read it almost in one breath. What breathtaking pictures?! Still feeling ...... "strange" (see title).
Thanks for sharing your adventure of life. It would be great if you manage to put it all in a book. You can count on few costumers in Croatia.
Hvala.
Bye

Thank you for a wonderful - THE BEST - RR I've read. Every day after work I would read a few pages and every time I was thinking what's next??

Again - thanks for my daily fix.

Thank you guys!

Haven't checked in lately since we thought our thread is dead for good

Many of those positive comments made our day!

We'be been 8-to-5 working people for all too long now with little time to spare and we're highly ashamed that the book is still lagging way behind the schedule we expected to have it ready (supposed to be ready by now FFS )

Now that the summer's about the end it's also shame to say we've ridden so little during this season, we haven't had even a holiday in the summer. Our used abused and worn but still running strong GS been sitting in garage way more than she likes. Those weekends when we make a quick dash around our local contryside injects those irresistible 'freedom' vibrations into our bodies, making us realize how much hard work, dedication and hard earning it takes to properly travel again. This has been our only excuse for our 8-to-5 work motives, those tired evenings and dead weekends. Hopefully it won't go down all in vain...

In fact writing the book has been our only connection to the real adventure travelling for us - in our minds, it often feels like we're again reliving it. A fuel for our soul...








Now, about the book progress: estonian text is ready and just today we got a draft back from our editor. Probably going through a couple of minor changes and it's finalized.

Once we have it ready it needs to be translated into English - we can't afford translation service so Kariina plans to do this. It was no coincidence why we wrote it in the language we're fluent in - Estonian. We could have written it in English straight away, but it wouldn't be as expressive as we'd like to.

As you can guess we have way too many pictures so the next step is selecting those to compliment the book. I'd love to include a lot of analog work since analog photography is where my heart is. Digital photography has always been somehow like cheating for me.

The good news is our scanner runs more work hours than we do and I've scanned 2/3 of our RTW film material with almost full summer of working on it (in case anyone doesn't know - drum scanning is a dying art of high-end scanning that needs a lot of handwork and time, plus the highly mechanical scanner itself needs a lot of maintenance). I'm still not sure why I go through all the fuzz, but there's something special about scanning your work through photomultiplier tubes instead of the common CCD.


Film getting drumscanned - drum rotates around 1200 rpm.



As some of you probably know I'm fanatical about analog and I'd like to have things as close to analog as possible. Digital faking, simulations or emulations just doesn't cut for me.




Raúl (drumscanned film frame).





Since we're self publishing (or at least thinking of doing that) there're technical issues on how to make a hardcopy book with pics that doesn't cost an arm or leg. I.e. the ripoff prices like with the photobooks. Ideally we'd love to have it all in a high quality photobook that would be the best to combine our pictures with text, but I don't think many people would be willing to pay premium for such a high quality print. So for now it looks like we're on the way to making some compromises in our tough economy, ...or maybe not. We're still arguing on the final format.

Self-publishing turns out to be a major PITA with so many unknowns and hell lot of work, but hopefully we can pull it through. Will keep you posted.

Margus & Kariina
