Kamchatka-2018: Kam-route, Kam-vids, Kam from outer space.
Herewith, the LAST post in the series on our Kamchatka-2018 expedition! No, really. “What? No meandering 30-post extended-version travelogue with several hundred pics?” Nope. Not this year. Don’t worry though: I’ll make up for this year’s scant reportage after the next Kamchatka mission.
But back to this year’s trip…
So. What have I got for you today?
First, of course, there’s the full route taken this year in on the peninsula, with a few assorted pics inserted at different points along the way:
I do hope that this route – plus the few travel-tales in the earlier Kamchatka-2018 posts, or indeed all my Kamchatka notes (and there are a lot of them!) – might make the seemingly daunting destination of Kamchatka a bit less intimidating for some of the more adventurous among you, dear readers. If we can do it – average folks with average fitness levels – so can you! Just follow our route and you’ll be fine ).
Now what else?
As it’s Tuesday, and you’ve probably got enough reading on your plate already, I’ve got for you today a series of videos on this year’s expedition:
1) Expedition highlights:
3) Rewind back to Kamchatka-2015:
4) And further back – to 2012:
And finally – Kamchatka… from space! This is footage taken by a Russian astronaut as he was floating over the peninsula in the International Space Station! Incidentally, he just can’t stop enthusing about the magical, volcanical, beautiful, Kamchatka! See, it’s not just me!
That’s all for today folks! Do svidaniya!…
