Little Dom’s big adventure


At the guestinitza last night we landed on our feet. It was a good price with secure parking for the bikes, a restaurant with good food and nothing else for miles around. A couple of bikes pulled in for fuel, so we went over to talk to the riders. One of them had British plates, which made the conversion a lot easier!

It turns out that Dom is on a trip to Japan for charity, having been on the road for just over 3 months. He’s been doing a load of videos on YouTube and they’re really good. You can see his channel – it’s called littledoms. He’s been through khazakstan, Mongolia and the Ukraine and we talked at length about the roads, cultures and people.

We went over his Mongolia map, which he kindly donated in return for my Russia map. It seems like he’s done the hard miles already, the rest of his trip will be a breeze. Conversely, we’re on the easy leg right now – so we need to “man up” for Mongolia. A lot!

We saw footage of his crash which was quite sobering, but it was really good to meet him. Good luck for the rest of your trip Dom, I hope to see you in England sometime! Here we are planning our next moves.

The good news for me is that I have a date I need to arrive in St.Petersburg for, as the girls are coming out to see me! It’ll be tight, but I’ll be there at any cost šŸ™‚

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
