Since 2006, I am average between 8 and 10 months per year in Kyrgyzstan. Originally I wanted to spend there only a vacation with the quad, but I fell in love with the scenery, culture and tradition there. Initially I beat myself by with English, hands and feet only (body language). Today I speak ever - in my opinion - passable Russian. My hobbies besides the quad and motorcycle riding include hiking, mountaineering, rock climbing and archery and photographing. I never thought that this landscape so fascinated me, that I am every year on the new happy to go there and to share my favorite landscapes with you.
