A New Adventure


Motorcycle Adventure Travel | Puking Airline PassengerSo the story picks up where I left off. It only took me eight months to write all the stories from last year’s trip so I think I can safely say that I can do better this year. I’ve been given a green light to take another trip and my tickets are booked so there is no turning back now. A few months ago I placed a widget on the blog with four destinations for my next trip. I guess it’s about time I reveal the results. If you remember the choices were:

  1. Istanbul, Turkey
  2. Odessa, Ukraine
  3. St. Petersburg, Russia
  4. Helsinki, Finland
The results were quite a shock to me. I personally thought that St. Petersburg would have been the runaway winner in this survey. As it turns out it came in third just in front of Helsinki. In second place was Istanbul and the surprising winner turned out to be Odessa by a whopping 6 votes. So I have put together some preliminary plans to travel to Odessa starting on August 8, 2009. I fly into Munich and from there I go to Jadrtovac in Croatia where I left my bike last year. I have gone through many routes on google maps and my favorite mapsite ViaMichelin (by far the best European route maker). My preliminary route has me traveling through:
  • Croatia
  • Bosnia Herzegovina
  • Montenegro
  • Serbia
  • Albania
  • Macedonia
  • Greece
  • Turkey
  • Bulgaria
  • Romania
  • Moldova
  • Ukraine Republic
  • Poland
  • Czech
  • Germany
That basically works out to one country for every day I'm on the road. Of course I don't plan on spending the night in Albania or Macedonia, though that may change along the way. Its a hectic schedule with alot of ground to cover but fortunately I'm riding solo so I can change my route at will.
