Made it Vlad - Thank you all!

Hi folks!

I just arrived in Vlad and I'm absolutely elated! It feels amazing to have got here.

Just want to say a huge thank you to all HUBBers for all the help you've given me either directly or indirectly. I wouldn't have left home without the HUBB, and I certainly wouldn't have made it here and be feeling so fantastic!

Thank you!

Al

Hopefully the ferry to Korea, then by air to Vancouver.

From There I'm planning to meander around the states until the HU meeting at the end of September.

I'd like to go south to Ushuaia, there's a couple of other brits heading that way, one I've met over here. Depends if the bank balance holds out.

Which it won't at Hotel Vladivostok prices!

Wish I'd known you were in Vlad before. Did you hook up with any local bikers? Like Alexei, Fridrih or Grandy?

Home!

Well, here I am - home. 19,000 miles RTW in 147 days. An incredible experience, and I consider myself to be only taking a temporary break while I get my house in order before embarking on something a little bit more permanent....

This has been better than I ever imagined. I'm delighted to have made it all the way round, but desperate to go again.

Cheers to adventure biking!

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
