May 29, Oleg Avdeev from Kharkiv went cycling in Uzhgorod-Milan tour. He shared his impressions and photos on his page on Vkontakte.

“It’s the craziest thing I’ve done in my life! I hope that this month will be filled with bright colors and, of course, the favorite team wins!” he written it before going for a trip.

Day 1. On the first day, Oleg took the conquest of Slovakia. There he boarded a train to Prague.

The Dutch impressed by their hospitality: I have not had time to place a tent, and a neighbor-elderly woman started a dialogue and brought me a chair, a table, a cold bottle of wine (oh, this was on time!).
