I spent a night somewhere in the middle of nowhere. Next day morning there came old Mongolian guy on a horse. He knew a bit russian and a few words in english so we talked a bit. He asked me: "Aren't you affraid to sleep here alone?"
"No, why would I be affraid?"
"Because here are wolves."


Well I don't know. I have never met a wolf so I don't know what would it be like. And basicly I do not know how big they are here in Mongolia.

So after a small circle that I did I thought it's time to go back to Poland. I experienced mongolian space for a few moments and felt satisfied. Yes, some people have strange reasons for travelling
So I went back to my favorite town - Ulaan Baatar.


I bought earrings for a special friend of mine.
(Nie fikaj!! Dobrze wiesz, ze o tobie mowa!!)


..and I left Ulaan Baatar.
Fock!! Now I understand what was wrong with this city when I stayed here couple of nights. As soon as I entered the city now I had tears in my eyes and felt like I couldn't breathe. Fock! Is this city SOOOO poluted or what? This is strange to me.
As soon as I left the city I felt like all of my body could breathe again.
I built my tent some kilometres after Ulaan Baatar. So back to Russia it shouldn't be more than 250km.

I met two Yamahas TTR 600. Weeeeeeeeeee I am a big admirer of that bike. Too bad they are not produced anymore.


It's Pawel and Agnieszka from Poland. Agnieszka lives 15km from where I live They have been travelling for 4 months. Went to Turkey, Iran, Tajikistan etc., now in Mongolia, going somehow through China (not on bikes), then SE Asia and Australia.

There were also two another guys from Poland (they looked like a grandfather and a grandson) and Enrique - guy from Italy who came here on a bicycle. It only took him 4 months. Damn. My deepest respect.
I feel so small now. Smells like a sulfur.

Good stuff indeed.

To go see wide open spaces and spend some time alone finding yourself again is a very very very very very good reason to ride into the middle of nowhere Yeuop.

There were some really nice bugs. It's big like half of Snickers.


So I keep going home. Back to Russia. Somehow I cannot understand why am I going west instead of going north I should have passed Darkhan city that was here some two weeks ago, now it's gone. What a sulfur.
But it's so nice here and nothing else matters..



Sometimes you may see a camel.


Everything is sooooo fine but I must have taken a wrong way. What a sulfur. What a shame. Then I saw this and I already knew for sure that I took wrong way. FOCK!! Sulfur!! How could I get lost here? I don't understand..

Initially I was pretty much pissed but then I thought it was so nice here and the road was quite ok, so let's keep going that way!!


Then I met Melousine from France. That girl is travelling on Varadero 125ccm from France tu Russia, Mongolia, back to Russia to Vladivostok and to Japan. Damn!! And again I feel sooooo small Sulfur!!


And some landscapes..

Holy crap! What an inspiration. The Varadero was the first bike I learnt to ride on. I mistakingly thought I needed a big adventure bike to do trips like this when in actual fact the key was already in my hand. Fair play to the woman. That said the Varadero was a fun bike for 125cc and while a bit feeble on highways it would be just fine on dusty trails. Amazing.
