When you live in a region where winter continues more than six months, you are forced to survive (at least, you need to kill your time while people from other climate zones are swimming, surfing, biking and hiking). Continue reading
2 days ago we took a short ride because the temperature seemed to be going up (a bit). Yes, I hope summer has finally come.
I did tell you there are no special bike paths in our city and in many others, so, if you want to ride a bike, you have several ways out: Continue reading
Offroad in Russia | Siberian Auto Moto Festival
Among all the nations you can find absolutely different people with various interests: cinema, music, clubs, travelling… Here, in Russia, I know many people who like offroading (possibly it’s caused by the roads quality :) ).

Today we were going to a planetarium to take part in astronomical observations. But unfortunately weather is not so good for admiring stars :( Too cloudy.
Have I already mentioned that we like biking? Yes, we do!
Unfortunately, most of the Russian cities don’t have any special bicycle routs that’s why people ride their bikes near the right edge of the roadway or on sidewalks.
Summer has come and it means that people prefer to spend time outdoors.
The most popular places are free beaches where people lie like seals and there isn’t enough room to swing a cat. Or the nearest forests where people all together make a fire, prepare shashlyk and listen loud music. Just imagine: 1000 squared metres (for examples), a great number of people (not enough space for everyone), but everyone considers it’s his duty to turn on his favorite music and make it louder. Usually after eating, people dump garbage in the same place.
