Mud, bears, surf & grit: Russia to Japan by bike and kayak

Below is a selection of photos from the most challenging phase of the journey so far – Russia to Japan by bike and kayak, a five week adventure in the autumn. It allowed me to link mainland Eurasia with Japan’s main island, Honshu.

I hope you enjoy rootling through them as much as I enjoyed pulling them out of the stores. And, if you fancy a wild and beautiful part of the world to bike and kayak through, then the Russian Far East is a wonderful place to go. To remind you of the story – check out some of the blogs and videos from that time.

      I’m glad you enjoyed them Annette. The rainbow is actually me taking the picture and Justine doing the leaping. It was a happy moment though!

    Very inspiring and the epitome of the breadth and depth of the adventure spirit…! And of course ‘meaning of life.’ Looking forward to the journey continued…..

    Thanks for the effort of putting this all together. I’ve been an avid photographer for more than 40 years and most of these, IMHO, are beautiful, interesting shots. Justine is to be commended. Stay focused, but be kind to yourself.

    We discussed your book at my book club last week – should have boosted the sales by four or five! My suggestion of course. Everyone enjoyed it and admired your stamina. Interesting discussion then followed – not necessarily about the book but then that is part of a book club. All loved your description of the albatross. Well done – hope the preparations continue well and you are enjoying Japan. Love Averil.

    Hi Sarah
    Great to be able to share your journey with more interesting photos and experiences. Hope your shoulder has improved and you have recovered from your cold. Your Mum and I enjoyed a coffee in Melton – good excuse to sit and natter instead of walking round the market in the pouring rain!! Keep smiling
    Love Heather
