Going East

My good friend and former colleague Bridget, along with her partner, Graham, is currently doing something so hardcore it makes me ashamed. The two of them are fulfilling a lifelong dream of cycling from the UK to Central Asia.
Yes, cycling... Good grief, it's impressive. What's even more impressive is the blog and photos which they are using to document the trip. I urge anyone with an interest in the current state of Eastern Europe and Asia to head on over and take a look. As far as I know they're just leaving the Ukraine and are crossing the Black Sea towards Georgia. The eventual destination being Kazakhstan, Blimey.
Anyway - of course, it's for charity and I urge readers to head on over to the blog and be amazed.

Thanks Chris, and nice to hear from you.
We are waiting to get a ferry across the Black Sea so doing all the things you should do if you go to Odessa such as visiting the Potempkin steps (yup, they are just steps - not a teetering pram in sight).
