    Hehe, world is a small place. Hectors friend Ivan stayed in my apartment few days in autumn 2010 as Ivan was on his way to Nortdcapp (coming also from Mongolia). Hector and Ivan started ride together but their group split up as Hector had this accident and broken hand. He sold his bike later (i think in Mongolia) and he backbacked to China and i undesrstood that he then headed back to Mexico. Ivan spend last year and good part of this year riding around Africa and he is now in Germany i think. If anyone meets him say hello to him from Sami from Finland.

    We met Enrico when we were somewhere riding towards UlanBataar and rode with Pawel and Aga i think nearly 10 days from Kazakstan near lake Balkash to Ulaangom Mongolia. We must have been really close to cross our paths as you have been in Mongolia same time.

    Let's resurrect this old thread.

    I have been telling someone about this great report and had hard time finding it. It deserves to be bumped back to top of RR section, to allow more inmates to read and enjoy it.

    Piotr, how is life?
    Doing another adventure?
    We sure would like to see more of your great stories. Pictures of hot girls do not hurt, either! :evil Lucky bastard...

    Hello! Somehow i am still alive ;-)
    As i expected - after Mongolia trip hard times have come ;-)
    Last year I had incredibly small amount of money so I decided to go somewhere close.
    I went for a couple of days to Balkan countries and I loved it!!

    This year it is even worse with money ;-)
    I just lost my job, so in some 2-3 weeks I am starting my new trip with having around 300 euro in my pocket :rofl:clap

    Good luck with your upcoming trip!

    It may be a great adventure. Eons ago (ahem...), while in college, I spent a summer vacation crisscrossing Western Europe with my then-girlfriend. Our home currency was not convertible, all we had was $400 (a lot of money for us, but a pittance in the West) and that had to suffice for gas and food for the duration.

    Admittedly, it appears that, in the days well before anti-terrorist and anti-immigrant hysteria, it was much easier to find overnight camping spots and odd jobs to supplement our resources.

    Still, seeing your resourcefulness, I have no doubt that you will do just fine!

    I just read this ride report from beginning to end - so well-written and so much fun! I admire your "go anywhere" attitude! Thanks for taking the time to post pictures and write a report.

    Yeuop- thank you for sharing your trip. I hope that you may adventure again and I truly hope you can do it on your proud steed. Here's to you making 400k KM on your XT600.
