The Bulgarian border was much better than its reputation. Leaving Turkey actually took more time. No road tax for motorcycles.

Now in Turkey. The border was quiet but wonderfully inefficient. No carnet problems but issues with not having ten dollars for customs forms.

Started the trip to Crimea. First gasoline break on the outskirts of Odessa, and then on the road. Sun is shining.

Ukraine. The border was surprisingly fast and the nice border guards even warned me of a police radar trap ahead.

Last morning in St. Petersburg. We're packing and wondering how Kerttu will get all her stuff carried without the motorcycle.

Heavy rain in Helsinki so we put on our teletubby suits. Odometer says 56084km

The photos still need to be titled and added to appropriate travel journal entries, but that might have to wait until I return from the Black Sea.
This trip will be headed to the Black Sea, and possibly to the Caucasus region. Research for the Caucasus part of the trip has been going on for quite a while, but now it looks like the area might be a bit too restless for travel.
