..Elbrus 2009

Hello everyone!!
I thought I would show you some pictures of a short trip I made this year.
My intention was to go to Russia - but not really far away, I wanted to go to Caucasus mountains.
I am polish, at that time I lived in Czech Republic and this is where the story begins.

Ok. So here is the main hero - my good old XT 600.

I passed Slovakia quite fast even though it rained a lot. I like this country very much but recently things have changed and you get some crazy fines for speeding and so on.

So I entered Hungary in Komarno/Komarom. Nice place.

Had to have a picture in front of a paprika-house!!

I accidently went to the KTM dealer as I never really had an opportunity to sit on a LC8 - which might be a cool bike for travelling I guess. This bike fits me perfectly!!


(but still we all know that XT 600 is WAY MUCH BETTER than shitty KTM )

Finally went to Romania.


Been here milion times and love this country. Still seems to me like a place where a better world starts.

On the top of the road you could see nothing. I had to ask someone to show me where the Balea Lac is. Of course it started raining.

Would this happen to be the Transfagarasan Road? Read about it in the Sibirski Extreme report and also saw it when Top Gear went to Romainia. Looks fantastic!!

Yes, that's the Transfagarasan Road. Worth going.

At night it started raining like shit!! Never experienced that heavy rain. After some 20 minutes I thought something's wrong, so I opened my tent and..
