Turn right at Warsaw…

Screen Shot 2013-10-23 at 19.11.59This week there’s been a slight change of plan – I’m not driving to Moscow anymore, I don’t fancy the idea of traversing Belarus, I’ve heard a lot of bad things about the country. Also, visas are needed for Belarus and Russia, which would add nearly £1000 to the cost of a trip that I’m already planning on a very tight budget. So, I’m driving to Crimea in Ukraine instead, it’s about the same distance and I’ll get to go through Romania on the way back, a country I’ve always wanted to visit.
Joining me on this epic road-trip will be writer and very good friend, Trevor Gibbs. Trevor has been my ‘partner in crime’ for a few projects, the last one being our joint essay on Yellowknife and the surrounding area in North West Canada. Trevor has travelled extensively all over the world, knows his stuff and is generally good to have around, he also loves a good road-trip…

    Hi Phil, I really love your photographies. I don’t get tired to watch photographs 🙂 Moreover, it allows me to improve my skills 😀 Thanks


  3. Hello! I am from Belarus! I want to say that Belarus is very safe for tourist. If you would not play against the government nothing would happened to you. We have so much police that no much crime can survive 🙂
