До свиданя!


Leaving Murmansk this morning, if everything goes to plan I’ll be in Norway this evening. That means saying goodbye to Russia for the last time on this trip, which I have to say is more than a little sad. I’ve spent a lot of time here and seen some amazing, beautiful, crazy, vibrant and sad things here.

But what I’ll take away from Russia more than anything else is the generosity of the people. Complete strangers giving gifts because I happened to be in their village, friends of friends putting me up and feeding me for free. Even on my last stopover, Edward is looking after me.

I can’t express my gratitude enough, but once again, thank you to everyone. Ilya, Lena, Feel & family, Misha, Eugin, Bankir, Kiril, Alex, Anya, Nikolai, Sergei, Yuri, Natalia, Alex, Dmitri (Helgi), Oleg, Inga, Olga and Edward.

People of Russia: Спасибо и до свиданя!

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!
