Bo 'n' Louise

A blog about one of our trips

The unprepared round-the-world tour starting 29th of June 2009.
First phase was from USA to South America on motorcycles. We made it, and the bikes are sold.
Second phase was the South Pacific... from island to island in old fashion backpacker style.
Third phase was around and around in Southeast Asia.
In fourth phase Louise went back to Denmark (August 2010) for work, while Bo continued in East Asia.
In fifth phase we were both on work, Louise in South America and Bo in Southeast Asia.
In the sixth phase Louise was in Denmark while Bo was making his way home through Russia.
By November 2010 both Louise and Bo were back in Denmark and an amazing journey has ended - but then there is always the next trip :-)

Classy Russia

It is fucking cold in Russia… nobody told me!!!

For once I have done my homework regarding booking accommodation and transport, so this time I only need to enjoy the classy life of Russia.

The bus from the airport to Vladivostok city.

My first impressions was elegance. Gold teeth wearing taxi drivers and hooker dressed Russian ladies. I saw three ladies standing at the side of the road on our way in to Vladivostok city. My first dirty thought was of course “hookers” because of their tight and head-turning outfits, but then I reminded myself that Russian ladies just like to dress up smart, and I should let go of my prejudices. Until I realized that these actually were highway hookers.

And the men… they all look like polytechnic students who have been passed a Jack & Jones in a rush.

Siberia looks very much like Denmark on a spring day.

The neighborhood of my hostel in Vladivostok.

The actually hostel is just an apartment in a normal residential block. This is the door.
