I was in Odessa three years ago. I stayed at Polish priest - there was low cost for a sleeping place (in the center of Odessa and it was very safe parking lot). Have a safe place to the sleep?

I went to Dzhankoy, Feodossija, Kerch.
I bough ukrainian jagodzianka with potatoes. It was sooooooooooooo delicious Why don't we have them in Poland?


Anyway. I am in Anapa, Russia now. Going to Caucasus, as the temperatures are really high here. Border in Kerch was very much ok. It seems that every year it gets better. And I didn't even have to buy strakhovka which is good.
And no one really cared about my luggage.

I took a ferry from Kerch to Russia.


I have already been here some years ago going to Caucasus and trying to climb Elbrus. Did not make it though.

Nice landscapes in Russia while going to Anapa. I needed to exchange there some money, buy gas, food etc. Many people there. Too many.


I have also met may bikers on the road as there is a bike meeting this weekend. Some people told me to go there but I am a romantic slavic soul and decided not to.

Going on the coast almost to Sochi was a bad idea. High temperatures, many tourists, many traffic jams. So I finally turned east to Maikop. Finally some bad roads.


And then I think to myself - am I really in Caucasus?
