Nice! Bring it on!
in like Flynn!! Fantastic outlook on the world respect.....oh and the woman WOWWW
Many people associate Chechnya, Dagestan and other former Soviet republics only with terrorism; your journey and pictures dispel that perception.
You have a great attitude and I appreciate your desire for adventure. Looking forward to more! Thank you.
unfortunately I passed Ingushetia by highway this time and regretting much.
All the charming names like Vovnushki, Erzi, Dzheyrakh, Egikal and some others are waiting till May '14 (pic stolen)
But I'm pretty sure this particular Maga (although the name is very common) was also present at the season opening in Grozny and Makhachkala which I was made to visit not to offend my hosts - every rider from 3 republics was there.
I've had a very brief holiday there - only 2 weeks, but that's cause I did not hand over my notice and had a job to return to.
I managed to squeeze pretty much into these weeks though and I'm still mesmerized but views and people - just what you told - everybody invites you, no chance to check any hotels. Guys took days off from work and left relatives visiting at home to accompany me - Caucasian courtesy.
This is midday working day - guys came and left and were very sorry they cannot spend the whole day there drinking tea and deciding who is going with me to the mountains.
They would never allow a guest, let alone a female one to go anywhere alone. After few tons of tea had to make a secret decision to leave telling them I'm heading for border - the only chance to get to see anything ant talk to strangers - while accompanied by them I had no chance to be spoken to
These guys have the same opinion of mountains like those who live at the seacoast and swim only in rivers. The more ironic one told "we dream to prove we've already come down" meaning specific attitude towards highlanders that's common anywhere in the world.
I just had this feeling from your first report page. Knew you had a big heart and searching for true people
Wish you the best
Another person with not enough sense to not know he shouldnt be riding a motorbike without experience in countries that nobody in their right mind should be riding thru.
You can bet your ass I am in for the Women Guns N Beer!!
Be safe this is a good un.
I'm so in!! This is going to be great!
In for the duration!
I'll be riding along cause I want to see if Tajikistan is a real place.
I find a photo of you here!!!
Loving this. I'm off to Ukraine next year.
i guess Chechnya must have changed for better. doubt you would have had same luck about 15 years ago.
very unique trip, good for you!
