@MadRider777 thank you for sharing, I always find your pics so fascinating.
Great weather and leisurely walk in Orehovo park
The art of girls photography
Some casual pics
And another short weekend trip 100 km from Moscow
I may have said this already, but I'd like to visit Russia one day (preferably a spring or summer day. I don't like the cold. LOL!). It looks beautiful!
If you mean Moscow its climate isn't very harsh, pretty similar to Minneapolis in the US. And some snowy winter days are very pleasant.
But summer is summer anyway .
Minneapolis!? A person could freeze to death in Minneapolis on the first day of July!
(-: Just joking. I live in southern Arizona. It may snow the tiniest bit here one day every several years, but it's gone within 30 to 60 minutes. Below 50F we're all wearing winter coats here...
You'll have to bring your coat in Russia even in summer
Old monastery near Zvenigorod, about 100 km from Moscow
My small loop in Volga region is here:
And now we are continuing to eхplore Moscow region
Volokolamsk Kremlin, 120 km from Moscow
Backroads are inviting to ride more
Old estate Yaropoletz, where many famous people from empress Catherine the Great to Vladimir Lenin used to visit
I have been fascinated with Russia since reading about Peter the Great. I would love to see St Petersburg and look around Preobrazhenskoe. The architecture and history intrigue me. Thanks for putting these photos together.
Unfortunately, there are practically nothing from the Peters era in Preobrazhensky area now. But St. Petersburg and suburbs are awesome.
Old Joseph-Volokolamsk Monastery
Some non-touristic views of Moscow outskirts
Nice wooden decorations
But I'm here on business. I have to buy used tire instead of a punctured one. In this garages a twin-brother of my Metz Z8 is waiting me
The punctured tire got a rubber patch and keeping in reserve
Thursday Moscow report, everyday life in all its versatility
Some people live in glamour
And some are working hard
Someone is still in the past
And somebody already in the future
I need only some water in this heat,
some simple life,
some beautiful views
This is quite enough not to become one of the soulless "items" under the hypnosis of the metropolis
My big Southern trip report is here
I really enjoyed your ride report. I went through it all in just a couple of days. Thanks for sharing such organic photos. It somehow brings up a very nostalgic feeling in me, even though I was only 3 years old when we left to move to the U.S. One day I will come back to visit!
Thank you for your kind words. And welcome!
