"I'm shy, leave me alone!" This little buddy is actually very scared. He was in the middle of the road and cars were driving above his head. But he was to stressed to move. I hope you guys don't have many situations like this in your life: stress is not allowing you to take actions. ° #turtle #wild #animals #nature #stress #NorthMacedonia #travel

... Thunders around. It starts to rain. Finally we sit in the tiny office, facility remembers Tito's times. After many, many questions about me and my current and previous visits in Macedonia. After going through my luggage, checking my phone and my papers. They finally tell me I'm free to go. I just need to delete all the photos I took since be beginning of my "shortcut" ride. Even though there were only photos of turtles and one gigantic beetle I've seen on the way. Not all these photos were even taken in the military zone. I have a feeling that he wanted to show off. Show that he has power to make me delete these photos. But it's hard to argue when you have 10 solders above your head.. Finally I'm on my way again. Its dark, but at least no more rain. I arrive to Bitola at midnight. Not bad for a first day of the trip! ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ ° #firstDay #adventure #militaryZone #soldiers #dontFuckWithArmy #motoTrip #crf #offRoad #shortcut #NorthMacedonia #interrogation

First day of riding started with quite a load of adventures! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I started late after many coffees with my friends in ล tip. Weather was perfect. The plan was to go to Bitola, southern part of North Macedonia. The normal road goes around. So of course I've decided to try some shortcuts! Beginning of my shortcut was a good gravel road, so I thought it's was gonna be all like that. But at some point gravel ended. Rocks and mud appeared instead. But it is was still doable on my fully loaded CRF. Slowly. There was one beautiful long time abandoned village in the middle of all these hills. All houses made of stones. You're wondering why there's is no photo of it here... Well, yeah, that's the second part of the story. After another few kilometers of off-road and shepherd's villages only crowded with dogs ๐Ÿ• I'm on a nice gravel road again. Lots of turtles ๐Ÿข crossing the road. I knew there is some military base around there. But no signs or anything telling it's forbidden to ride there. Some old buildings. Looks like the base is not in use anymore. Until I arrive to the main road searching for a bridge to cross the river. And there by the river I spot first military vehicles. And soldiers. I see US army uniforms and humvees. And lots of armoured vehicles in different colors. But it's to late to go back. So I'm searching for the bridge. And then I get to the main entrance gate. Patrol by the gate seems to be little surprised by my visit. They tell me it's a training zone where some big NATO training is just taking place atm. But they are nice Macedonian soldiers, they offer me coffee and a cigarette. They ask me for passport and tell me to sit and wait. They say: "it's a problem my friend, not a big problem, don't worry, but we need to follow procedures". I only understand them talking about buying beers for the evening. I sit and wait, don't know what for. After 2h there is already 10 soldiers around me. And finally the military police arrives. One guy without uniform. He's going to interrogate me. Thunders around. ° TBC ° #firstDay #adventure #militaryZone #soldiers #dontFuckWithArmy #motoTrip #crf #offRoad #shortcut #NorthMacedonia #interrogation

New chapter in my travel book is just about to begin! After a long winter break I'm on the way to Macedonia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฐ where my bike ๐Ÿ is waiting patiently. Covered with some dust, but hopefully ready to bring me to the lakes of Macedonia, Albanian mountains and further all the way to Poland! ° #newadventure #motorcycle #motoTrip #travels #train #trainride #kolejeslaskie #pkp #OnTheWay

After exactly 2 months since taking off from Krakรณw I arrived to the edge of historical region of Mesopotamia. I was moving quite fast to escape cold in NE Turkey and to catch up with riding after the unplanned break.

There's a lot of horses in Tusheti. They are not really wild but they have a lot of freedom: no fences, no ropes. This little guy was very friendly ^^ His mum keeping an eye on strangers talking to her baby, though! ° #horse #tusheti #georgia #sky #mountains #halter #mane #fauna #packanimal #pasture #snout #grassland #livestock #stallion #mare #grass #mountain #sorrel #wild #horsesofinstagram #horses #pretty #instahorses #babyhorse #foal #colt

Bochorna, a village claimed to be the highest settlement in Europe (2345 masl). Of course if you consider Caucasus Europe and if you consider the only 1 person living there all year round as "inhabited" :) Anyways!

It's been a while since my last post. And that's because this is how I looked few days ago. I had a little accident while riding on the Tushetian roads. They are quite challenging but I don't know how did it exactly happen. I have a short memory loss. I lost a couple of hours and I don't remember a single thing from the accident. But I'm getting better now and hopefully I will be ready soon to continue my journey. I will also post some photos from Tusheti, it's soooo beautiful :) ° #tusheti #hospital #amulatory #accident #motorcycle #motorbike #crash #cervicalCollar #neckBrace #offRoad

Riding Stalin! Most of the statues of Joseph Stalin were taken down. But there are some forgotten places where he's still standing straight and doing well.
