From Germany almost to Kazachstan and back
My friend Damian and I (Christian) planned to drive from Germany to Kazachstan via Czech Republic --> Slovakia --> Ukraine --> Russia.
We drove from the 15th of June up to the 10 of July 2013. Unfortunately we didn`t reach Kazachstan. Two reasons for this:
1.) We needed more time for Czech Republic, Slovakia and the Ukraine. The Roads were much badder than expected.
2.) I got problems with my kidneys. I have to stay half a day in a hospital in Russia and I couldn`t drive for two and a half day.
The whole blog is written here:
So here some pics and some words :-)
Damian (left, BMW F650GS) and me (BMW R1200GS Adventure) at the start
First stop on a highway in Germany. YOu can see Damians tires at the back of his bike. Rhett on his Kawasaki1000 Zephyr escorted us on the first stage.
First night in a garden near to the czech boarder.

First campingsite in the Czech Republic. Good Beer :-)
The "Beinhaus" in Kostnice
The skulls and bones of over 40.000 bodies. Creepy......
From outside the "Beinhaus" doen't look very suspicious :-)
We slept in Motels and Hotels. It was so cheap. No need to use a tent.

You say Slovakia was cheap, for my own budgeting can you give me an idea of accommodation prices?

this looks great! I have done the Germany to Slovakia piece, but I did not have the Visas to enter the former Soviet Republics. I would love to hear more about your route, where you stayed, and of course, more pictures.
My brother lives down the street from "The Bone Church" in Prague, and I am hoping to get there someday. Ive driven past it but never gone in..
