In summer 2016 a friend of mine covered 23 500 km on him motobike literally speaking from the Western border of Russia to the Eater one. But that was not the whole thing. The intermediate points on his way were some Asian countries: Kazakhstan with its dusty steppes and the drying Aral Seas, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan with its Pamir Highway, Kyrgyzstan, and Mongolia. When one is alone on the road among nature he starts seeing the world just “now and here” and this gives him a renewed understanding…
He has recently started to describe his moto tour. The story is in Russian so far but the photos he publishes can also say much.
