A traveller from Chita walked to Novosibirsk almost without money, only with a backpack filled with the most necessary things. He spent his nights where it was possible: at good people houses, outside, and even in the taiga without a tent. Anton wears winter boots and a jacket; his backpack weighs 15 kilograms. Carrying it, he has already passed 3.5 thousand kilometres.

“On May 6, I left Chita, reached Ulan-Ude, Irkutsk, Krasnoyarsk, Kemerovo, Novosibirsk. By far, the most beautiful places that I managed to visit are Baikal and the Krasnoyarsk pillars,” said the traveller.

During the trip, there were many difficulties, such as injuries and cold. But the most difficult thing was to find an overnight stay. Not everyone wanted to let him home for free. The traveller said that he even had to sleep in the cemetery once. Very often he went to people, for tire service, to ask for shelter, and once spent the night at an asphalt plant.

Now Anton is going to Moscow. He plans to get a visa and go further – to Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and America. Approximately, his journey will take about seven years.
