Patagonia

Hello everyone, it’s been a while! Lauri and I finished our long journey already in July 2016. As you may imagine, after traveling for more than two years and three months, there’s a lot of things to do and people to meet when you come home. That’s what happened for me. After settling down for […]

Stuart Highway, part 2

It’s been a while since the last time I wrote here. A lot has happened so it’s a high time to write things down before I forget them. I’m writing from Brisbane, Australia where I have been living at the share house and working at the warehouse for three months now. At weekends I have […]

Stuart Highway, part 1

My flight from Singapore to Darwin landed 5:10AM. I dragged the bike box and panniers out from the airport and started to put together my bike. It was still dark, but the weather was already hot and humid. About 200 nights I stayed in my tent last year was enough to break my tent poles […]

Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore

Hua Hin is a tourist destination by the sea 200 kilometers south from capital Bangkok. For first time on our trip we were totally surrounded by tourists. During our first day in Hua Hin we met more Finns than together we had seen on our journey. It was quite strange, but not as shocking as […]

In the center of Lao Cai city, in front of a restaurant, on the other side of the road there was a traveller with a camera around his neck, looking at us curiously while we were trying to find a guesthouse. I was going to say hello to him. We don’t see other travellers very […]

Watermelons and sunshine

The sun was shining in the sky of modern capital Astana. We cycled through the center to the edge of the city. The city ended as quickly as it had started. There were no more green fields of Northern Kazakhstan. Fields became dryer the further south we went. Trees disappeared while the road changed more […]

Chelyabinsk – Omsk

We spent two weeks in Chelyabinsk. At first we stayed with our new friend Vladimir. Vladimir and his great friends had a lot to show for us, so we didn’t had much time to rest. We bought a guitar from Chelyabinsk and went to the cheap hotel. One morning the waiter of the hotel asked […]

Volga Bashkortostan

In Lyskovo, we joined to M7 road. There was more trucks than cars on the road. Near Cheboksary, we were lucky. Truck’s tire exploded just 100 meters ahead of us. We stopped to grocery shop in little Emetkino village to buy some dinner. Little boys followed us to the field and helped us to set […]

Russian countryside

We were happy to leave Pikalevo after a good rest. Sun was covered by clouds, but it was still warmer than earlier. Landscapes were changing between ice covered lakes, leafless trees and burned fields. There wasn’t traffic as much as we were used to see. We only saw a few small muddy trails before Sazonovo […]
