Awesome pics and story Kristof! I follow you on Facebook, but it's nice to see these all in one place.

I've really enjoyed reading your reports Kristof, makes me want to visit Russia even more :)
I've been thinking about shipping my Ural to Japan, taking the ferry to Vladivostok, traveling across Russia and Europe to England and shipping it back home again. It's sill a dream at the moment and may never happen, but it's a great dream :)

If you can keep your head when all about you are loosing theirs, you probably don't fully understand the situation!
