          I started from south east part of Poland, on 28 of June. Weight of my bicycle and bags (mountain equipments) is 75 kg. First I am going through Ukraine. Its really beautiful country. People are very poor, but they are good and helpful. Later I drive through the Crimea. Its commercial part of Ukraine, but the sea and landscape is very nice. After this I am going to Russia. In my passport I have a special stamp AB, so I don't need a visa. After 16 days, and 2600 km I am in Tereskol. I meet here one Russian men who comes from Moscow on his rolls (it's a four rolls under a each special shoes). Until now I didn't have a problems with my bicycle and my fitness. The Caucasus mountains are amazing. I leave here my bicycle, take my mountain equipments and start climbing the highest mountain of Europe. After a three days, and murderous effort I am on the top. I am very happy, but I have to continue my expedition. Russia is a country where every day you have a adventure. People are great. They gave me food, and very often I had to drink vodka with them. One problem is militia. Sometimes they can to rob your money.
          After descent from Elbrus I reach the summit of Sovietski Voin (4100 m.)After 7 days in Caucasus mountains I take my bicycle, and drive to east. In Vladikavkaz (80 km from Czeczenia) I can not pass the border to Goergia. "This is a borter only for Russian and Georgian" - the border officer sad. They gave me bread and Russian guard suggest passing the border on the water way (ferry Sochi - Poti). So I am going back. Later I am in Georgia. It is also very nice country. I am here only 2 days and I drive to Turkey. Here I climb to highest top Kackar mountains (3932 m). I am driving along the coast. Its very hot there. Almost after two weeks I am in Istambul and I am back in Europe.



In Bulgaria I leave Black Sea and I am going to Romania. Here also I climb to highest top of this country (Moldoveanu 2544m.) Later I am driving through Hungary and Slovakia. Hear is the last thing. I am climbing to dangerous, highest top of the Tatras mountains, Gerlach (2655 m.) After two days I reach the summit and I am happiest man on the world. After this I thing only about my lovely girlfriend Agata (now is my fiancée). When I meet her at least, we are like in heaven. For the next month we don't to part. We are together all the time now. I love her and she love me. Is most beautiful thing on the world.

          On my expedition I made 6800 km on my bicycle. I was four times in mountains (Caucasus, Kackar, Romanian mountains and Tatras, Polish-Slovakian mountains. Its took me 58 days.
