Summer 2017. Mushrooms season

After moving to Novosibirsk I've left my fishing activity and switched to other 'hunting' - mushrooms collecting. This new activity is great for my health and mood - early morning I walk in the forests and breathing fresh air and looking for mushrooms under the grass and trees. >>>


December 2012. Thailand (Pattaya) from Siberia, Novosibirsk

The travel to Thailand was planned in the summer 2012. To get a better price we should buy tickets early, 5-6 months advance. My friend suggested me the best choice for dates and hotel and we booked our trip in July 2012 for December 2012. As appeared that was a great chance for us to escape the crazy frost of minus 37 in Novosibirsk and come to warm weather of plus 35 centigrades in Pattaya. >>>


August 2010. Ala-Kul Lake - from Karakol to Altyn Arashan

The trekking to Ala-Kul lake was planned a few years ago. Initially Azat, my classmate, asked me to organize the Ala-Kul Lake visiting in 2008. But we didn’t realize this plan because of some reasons – once that was awful weather during weeks, then we had no the group participants gathered together. And at last, in this February 2010 when I visited Karakol ski base and met Azat and Ainura we decided to do this trekking in August 2010. So to 18th of August we had nine friends who liked our idea and our group of girls and boys was ready to begin four days trekking to Ala-Kul Lake... >>>

July 2007. Kirgizia (Kyrgyzstan). Trekking in Karakol valley.

August 2006. Kyrgyzstan. Issuk-Kul Lake.

The two weeks after Europe we spent on the Issyk-Kul lakeshore in the house of my moter-in-law.

So - we had a great relaxation time there - thanks to weather. >>>


July-August 2006. 3 weeks in Europe.

We were waiting impatiently for the summer holidays of 2006 year because we were invited by my friends to visit Europe for one month.
