Poland - transit

so started as planned; good by famillly








... it should take us about 10 hours to cross Poland, but there were problems. Perfect road, we enter Warsaw - capital of Poland and wojtek has a flat tyre:





Myself and MArcin went to to the city to get the passports and when we where back wojtek made 77 holes in his spare tubes when trying to fix the flat tyre; After 5 hours we have left the capital and after 200km the tyre just fell of the wheel; it was in Zamosc where wojtek had a motorcycle familly, which helped us to get new tupoes on sunday;



finally we have arrived o the Ukrainian border and met Mirek, so we are 4 in group now:

Ukraine - transit

Still on transit, in a hurry to get on the ferry from Odessa to Georrgia (across the black sea).

Camping in the bush (krzaczory) near Nemyrov where an excelent vodka is produced.








... and we have finally arrived to Odessa - Miasto Gieroy (Odessa - the hero city)





..and the well known Potiomkinowskie stairs:



Odessa by night amd next day we go to the ferry station; In a small window the woman tells me that there is no tickets; maybe on the next ferry (in 7 days) but maybe not; please please please; no; please please please; ok place for 2 person and 4 bikes; please please please; OK; you can go:)









.. after 3 days we finally arrive to Georgia/Poti. Huraaa!

Georgia - the north

So after a lot of fight with the customs we are finally on the land; first thing we do, we change the tyres from the crappy original road tyres to pirelli MT 21;





We want to go to the north, to the Caucas mountains - the Swanetia region. It the evening so we are looking in the bush for a good place for the tent. But a guy suddenly appears and invites us to his home. Huraa!!

A big supper is being prepared for us, and of course a 10L tank full of wine is under the table.



This Mat and hist mother. Mat is a soldier.



Mat had a twin brother, who died few years ago. After the death he had a marriage with a dall.





..next day little hangover, Mat came with a bottle of wine for breakfast;
Me jumped on our bikes and drove to Svanetia. Drove through a UN checkpoint and were told not to turn left (Abhasia region).









Two mototbikers from the Slovak and Czech republick joined us.
We drove through amasing track.
A typical thing for this region are stone towers.







..finally we haved arrived to Ushgula - the highest permanently inhabited(?) village in Europe.






When looking fot the right place to camp we found a lot of mud. All got stucked.



.. ok finally got there:





Next day the troad gets better nad better:





Few prblems with the snow - an avalanche came on the road few days before.









Met some wood workers, and tasted some home made vodka.



Got some fuel in a village:



..and now direction Georgia south;
