Photos from RUSSIA   ( Magadan & Vladivostok)


Andrey Mosolov and his family hosted us for the time we spent in Magadan.
This incredibly kind household made us feel like family and took extremely good care of us. Nothing was too much effort for them, and they all went to great lengths to treat us with unbelieveable hospitality.

Thank you so much Andrey, Constantine, Nadya and of course little Sasha.

The Mosolov family volunteered us for a television interview, and dragged in the local TV reporters. They also bullied us relentlessly until we sang a Russian song about travelling, which despite the reporter promises, aired that night on TV.
The beautiful reported made things simple, and her flawless English certainly helped.

Victoria and Izotova of DVT tour arranged our shipping from Magadan to Vlad, and put such love and personality into their service we felt like superstar celebrities.

Final loading of the bikes, and bording Zolotaya Kolyma for the voyage to Vladivostok.
We had an interesting crossing.


Arrival close to Vladivostok, great night camping on the beach, then on into town.
One last KTM mechanical issue when Simons rear sprocket shattered. Lift into town from a very kind and generously proportioned beer delivery driver.

Bike race event in Vlad, stunt performers after the race, and ladies without many clothes on.

Yuri and Joanna were our hosts in Vladivostok.
An amazingly generous and hospitable couple, they made us feel so welcome. Thank you so much, I sincerely hope to see you again.
