The blues – Polana Sosny


After our decision we hastily left the Ukraine to the West.
We passed several police controls and Kiev. After that we started to get more relaxed. 1.200 km and three days later we reached the campsite Polana Sosny at the High Tatra Mountains in Poland.

Step by step we recovered from the exertions at the Ukraine. The drive back to Poland was without any problem.

At the EU border in Poland it took a bit more time. After five hours and a X ray for Loki we were allowed to enter the European Union.

We could see the snow covered summits of the High Tatra mountains long before we reached the campsite.
We calmed down and thought about our irrational decision the finish the journey a short way in front of the Russian border.

At that point we weren`t ready to give up the plan. We looked for alternative routes.
To go South wasn`t possible because of all the visas we needed.
So finally we had to go to North or give up the plan.
The north route guides you through the Baltic countries, which are more expensive. Our money was due to the Ukraine trip reduced enough.
We weren`t ready to come back to Germany, sell Loki and travel by backpack, That is it, what would have been the alternative.
We asked our friends for their opinion and then made up our own mind:
We will do it by car!

So let`s go north, to Warsaw and the Baltics to Russia.
