We are participating in the first stage of the project "Russia in 365 days"

Our friend Igor Koltsov started a non-profit project «Russia in 365 days«. He is going to travel for a whole year, starting from August 1, 2011, to travel around Russia and try to show the real life of ordinary people, without hidden intrigues and special looking for negativity. Indeed, if you put aside all sorts of political slogans, forget the words «how bad to live», then you can try to change your thinking and become happier from it. Yes, there is a negative, and it is enough, but is there any point in wasting your life on it? We are all people, and if we are kinder to each other no matter what, the world will already begin to change..

How would this happen

The first stage of the project will pass through the central part of Russia, and we will take part in it. On some part of the way, we will meet Igor, and together we will continue our journey. It is a pity that for some reason we cannot devote more than a month to the trip, but then we will help it to be carried out from Moscow..

For us personally, another important factor is the opportunity to meet our readers, other travelers and bloggers, as well as just interesting and good people. I would like to distract myself from the virtual social networks and plunge into live communication and real life that flows outside the boundaries of our screens.

Our personal itinerary

Our route is largely up to you! Invite us to visit your city, support the idea! We do not need a lodging for the night, we have a tent. But we will be glad to have a couple of square meters on the floor of your house for us and our sleeping bags..

And if in the vicinity of your house / city / village there is also some interesting or unusual place, we will be very glad if you go there with us or just tell us about it so that we can visit it, capture it and then illuminate it in our project. At any stage you can join us or Igor.

Our personal route has not yet been fully formed (and will not always coincide with Igor). It all depends on those people who will invite us to visit, or offer to visit some place. That is, it is you who can influence the course of our journey. The route of our trip will pass only through the central part of Russia from north to south and will be adjusted along the way. Now we are looking for a car for a trip (so it will be possible to do more), but if we don’t find it, then we have trains and a hitchhiking at our disposal 🙂

Path length - about 5500 km.

Updated list of cities (from 05.10.11):


The travel itinerary will be adjusted in this article. And the reports will come out like our regular articles, which you can subscribe to via RSS, Twitter, Facebook..

Somehow it so happened that Facebook is the most active, and there you can follow my almost daily statuses in the profile.

You can write to us at [email protected], in skype Geleosan, and of course in the comments.

And while traveling, it is best to keep in touch via phones…. (Moscow megaphone, in roaming only SMS),…. (Oryol beeline, calls and SMS). Will not work around the clock.

P.S. For whom it is not difficult, support us with a link, in a blog or just on a social network. We will start in mid-August 2011. We will be glad for any help, we are waiting for an invitation from you, and see you offline!

Update. The project is completed, almost all materials are posted on our website using the links above.
