Easy. Because the border between Europe and Asia in Russia for the most part runs over land. The otherwise not entirely clear continental border along the Urals and the Caucasus is marked with monuments and markings in several places. At one of the latter, Ciril stopped with Toli.
Darko's meter then showed 8,011 kilometers. 138 runs in 25 days were already behind our team with Ciril and Toli at the helm. After St. Petersburg (5,005 kilometers, 86 hours of driving, 19 days) and Moscow (6,229 kilometers, 105 hours of driving, 21 days) our heroes left Europe, jumped into Asia and the next moment back to Europe. A little here, a little there. How this is possible and so very simply we wrote in the introduction.
However, it is not easy to drive on endless Siberian two-lane roads. Our first "soldier" on the mission admitted that he was already tired. Long rides, lots of trucks and (too) fast Russian drivers require 100% focus. The roadtrip through Central and Northern Europe is supposedly just an easy trip compared to the Russian one. We believe, Ciril. And we believe in you. Keeping fingers crossed! We are convinced that the crisis will soon pass, and the strenuous roadtrip will sooner or later serve us with new, more enjoyable adventures. Heads up, you got it!
