Volgograd, Russia Oct 2015

Sunday, 25 Oct 2015 | Views [44]

This trip wasn't well thought out. I used my air miles and ended up in the wrong part of Moscow for my cheap flight to Volgograd. So after landing in Domodedovo it took nearly 4 hours to get across Moscow to Sheremetyevo. Luckily I had booked hotels ... Read more >

Transiberian Railway 2015

Thursday, 6 Aug 2015 | Views [236]

I arrived at St Petersburg airport for the second time this summer. I was quite tired after my flight from Kazakhstan but was ready for my Transiberian experience which was starting this evening. I took a local bus to the centre hoping that the main ... Read more >


Dagestan 2015

Thursday, 9 Apr 2015 | Views [217]

I was sorry to leave Chechnya and wished I allocated more time for this part of the trip. My guide told me that to get to Dagestan we could drive on the motorway as it would be quicker but he did mention there may be a lot of traffic. The other option ... Read more >

Chechnya 2015

Tuesday, 7 Apr 2015 | Views [233]

This was my favourite Russian Caucus. It took a while to get here as I started in Sochi and headed east towards Cherkessia and Kabardino Balkaria until we reached North and South Ossetia. I was collected by my guide/couch surfer in Vladikavkaz in North ... Read more >


North Ossetia and 12kms of South Ossetia 2015

Saturday, 4 Apr 2015 | Views [225]

I was is North Ossetia for a short time but not as short as my visit to South Ossetia. I managed to travel 12 kms through the south before being stopped by the militia. My permit was granted and then a week before the trip it was revoked with no explanations.... Read more >

Abkhazia 2015

Tuesday, 31 Mar 2015 | Views [152]

Abkhazia is a disputed territory and a partially recognised state by the Russians and is also funded by them. This is obviously to show Georgia to stay away. The Georgians tried to occupy Abkhazia and after a bloody battle they failed. They insist they ... Read more >

Flaming Volcanoes in Kamchatka 2013

Friday, 9 Aug 2013 | Views [1864]

I finally arrived in Kamchatka after a 7 hour flight from Ulaan Bataar, a 9 hour wait in Moscow and an 8 hour flight to Petropavlovsk. After all that I met my group or at least I thought I did and had another 2 hours of waiting before I got to my hotel.... Read more >


Kaliningrad Oblast October 2012

Monday, 29 Oct 2012 | Views [525]

This trip was a little awkward as I was planning it. The flights were awkward, the visas were awkward and I find Russia difficult to navigate around at most times but this time I am on my own and winging it as usual. I found a hotel centrally located ... Read more >

North Pole July 2007

Wednesday, 25 Jul 2007 | Views [1768]

I found out about the North Pole 4 years ago, I didn’t realise people could travel and explore this region so I started to research this area. I know why not many people explored this area…it’s too bloody expensive. So I’ve been saving up ever since.... Read more >
