hello Adventurers, this is my first photo report so please be gentle with criticism It all began like any other dream. You sit at your work and think about leaving all this behind and start a new chapter. After being across Europe twice (transalp an GS) i wanted to do something more exciting than this. How far east can you go? i was asking myself. Siberia or nepal?? I am a hinglander you know...so the decision was quite easy. Now planning...getting visas...sorting out CdP....prepering my bike...collecting money...persuading my wife that this is what i want to do and that it's safe and i will be looking after myself. I did lie a wee bit....i have lost 30 Pounds after 3.5 months. I do not call that looking after myself Mr. X...I quit-i said to my boss. It felt great. now it's just me , my bike and 12 000 miles of adventure. Marcin is going east!! After few meetings with my friend I decided that i want to help someone by ding this. By writing my blog I have raised money for Orphans in Kathmandu Valley. I left on 31. August and got to Kathmandu on 4th December 2007. This is just a photo report. Actually i am working on a full report. enjoy just outside my house at around 8am. i left around 9am heading to Dalkeith where i previously worked. I was supposed to meet with few fellow GS'ers who wanted to ride with me for couple of hundreds of miles. My first destination was Oxford, just 360 miles down south. minutes before heading to glasgow where few other guys were waiting. From Left...Kenny, Al, my wife Ewelina, Andy, Kenny R., Leny, Me, Bruce, Skyenet, Konrad & Ania. They are getting married in April... time to leave. I have lost about 40 min in Dalkeith after realising that i forgot my maps!!my friend kenny jumped on a V-strom, got to my house breaking all the traffic rules and got back with my maps. I had no gps . lovely scottish roads. Heading down south. Kenny R. risking his balls overtaking seeing oncoming traffic. Kenny after bringing my maps took care of my wife who tried to tape as much as she was able to. about 8 bikes left edinburgh and followed me to glasgow. leaving Glasgow. After millions of handshakes it's about time now to leave for Oxford.
