Adventure Travel – A Life on the Road

Yes, while in search of destinations one may find those places that do not actually exist. I’ve traveled to the de-facto country of Transnistria (Pridnestrovia), and spent a few days in Tiraspol. Filling anonymous voids with experiences while committing them to memory, these places then take on another life. Now, I can say they definitely do exist.

I often adapt to the place and weather conditions. I only wear clothes or shoes made with tough and durable materials. The gear I…
