You are truly a free spirit.
Forgive me for ever doubting you.
If I could, I would vote your R/R as a six star......
Be safe always.

Awesome ride report Wesley, I am enjoying it immensely!!

I agree with your sentiments on Ukraine--I have found the people to be welcoming, the country very hospitable, and Ukrainian food so delicious!!! My spontaneous encounters resulted in many friendships and I cannot wait to be back.

Please keep on with the report, your story is amazing.

You mean the Polish man and women right?

I met them in Osh randomly on my way back from Tajikistan just before i met you, nice couple do they have a link for a ride report?

When is your next trip Yeuop ?

I really like your riding style
you may find something here: http://www.byledalej.com/ but it's only in polish
i know they made it to afganistan and they really enjoyed it.. but since then contact is lost so i don't even know if they finished their trip and are back in poland or not..

hopefully next trip will start this summer but you never know.. would be cool to meet you somewhere on the road ;-) cheers!!

Love reading your ride report. It is amazing the people you are meeting, and I truly admire how much of a people person you are. It is very encouraging to hear how open and welcoming everyone is to you. Simple amazing. I'm not sure I have ever experienced hospitality like that, and I am not sure I would be so comfortable with it at first. It makes me wonder why we in the west are so much more closed, also makes me feel like carrying a spare helmet in case I come across a lone hitch hiker!
