I hope everything will work out for you just fine, you crazy old bugger! I wish you all the luck in the world, and hope to hear about you and your babushka in the not-so-distant future!

:)

Do widzenia!

Wildrover .... we all deserve some happiness and love in our lives, and I hope you have finally found yours.

I have read your posts and have genuinely felt for you with your ups and downs; I am glad that you have enjoyed Poland and I'm sure that with the 'Love of your Life' you will enjoy Russia even more.

I spent some time in Russia in the late nineties and really enjoyed it; the people are very welcoming and friendly, very much like the Poles - they will put on a feast for their guests even though they may be quite poor.

I met the 'Love of my Life' in Wroclaw, Poland just over 10 years ago in a similar way you met yours - we also started communicating via the internet and then via phone calls before finally meeting in Krakow. A few months after our first meeting, but around 10 months after we started chatting we got engaged and now in September we will be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary along with our two children!

I have heard the Russians know how to throw a wedding reception which can last days - let us know if this is true.

Good Luck Wildrover!!

Oh , its true....Russian weddings are legendary....always involving a lot of vodka , dancing , and usually a good punch up....

Ours will be rather quiet by Russian standards , but a few of the Moscow Harley boys will be there , so anything can happen...!

Have you met her family yet

I have not met her daughter yet....Dasha is 21 and lives the other side of Moscow in the old wooden house that my Girlfriends parents built....she is completly crazy i am told , so we should get on great...she studies language at Moscow univesity and is fluent in lots of them including English...

Sadly the daughter is the only family that my girlfriend has , her parents are both dead....

Ksusha,s father was some sort of missile and rocket technical expert , his picture still hangs in the Moscow space museum...

He was one of the experts sent to Cuba to install missiles there...almost triggering world war three...!

Soon my lady will have family in the UK , and it would be nice if we can visit my father while he is still alive...he is 89 now...

And you left him alone to pursue a brave new world? F*cking A mate.

Anyway good luck with your lady.

He is hardly alone...he has a wife who was a nurse most of her life, and has recently bought himself a very nice house close to my sister...

My dad and me are not really that close , he split with my mom when i was quite young , and although we keep in touch , and i visit him , we don,t have the usual father / son relationship...

My bad sorry then.

My dad and me are not really that close , he split with my mom when i was quite young

Family is family, i hate the guts of most of mine but they're family - live and die for them.

Anyway is the russian girl at least hot? You realise you're moving into 3rd world country right?

Yep...she is definatly hot....its been over 40 degrees in Moscow for a while now...but thankfully they had a bit of a storm last night and its now cool enough to sleep at night....

Is that what you meant...?

Touche, still you've any idea of how life is in Russia? You struggled in Poland and its ********* in comparison.

They have a saying in Russia....THERE IS NO LIFE OUTSIDE MOSCOW....!

I have no doubts that it will be a challenge to make a life in Russia , but i will at least be with someone who speaks the language , is qualified to teach me it , and has already got a house there...She also has an income that will keep us alive untill i find a job , something that will be a little easier in Moscow than it is in the middle of a Polish forest...

Once her flat is sold , and i can sell my house in UK , we will have more than enough money for a good life in Russia , and i will be able to make my business plans come true and take people on Harley and 4 x 4 expeditions to far off places...

I am not expecting it to be easy...but i have no doubts its going to work out...

Are you taking the maluch to russia

Being completly mad....i intend to drive the Maluch to its new home north of Moscow...but i will avoid the city center where its a bit like a high speed destruction derby....Thanks for your good wishes my friend.....how is life in Oz...? The Maluch will be a bit of a novelty in Russia , it was never imported there , although they have a Russian made copy called the Zaphoretz which is a bit similar...
OP wildrover 98 | 4,451
26 Jul 2010 #44
This is the Russian copy of the Maluch...

Similar , but not as good quality....a bit dismal really...

I have no doubts that it will be a challenge

From what i have read about your exploits it's what you thrive on :-)

Good luck matey and all the best!

That Maluch is going to Moscow, Thats amazing! Its still going then :) I might have to import one here,

Sydney is awesome but with working flat out and flying all over the country for conferences i haven't seen a great deal. I pass the opera house every morning on the ferry to work which is cool,

I might have to take a trip to Moscow at some point, It looks equally as interesting!

This is what you want..... tiny.cc/9c58k

Like most people i would like an easy life...but i am the kind of person who will chase an impossible dream as long as i personally believe in it....

Living in Poland was very different from living in the UK , and i am sure that life in Russia will be even more different , but i will at least have the support of somebody that loves me and who has lived in Russia all her life...That has to make it easier than it was in Poland where i was mostly alone...

I have no fear of this new challenge...

No tears please...its for the best really....

Remember I told you to drown her in the Dnieper and you didn't listen ;) Now you are moving on, all happy, leaving everyone behind like nothing happened. How rude of you, Wildy ;)

I wish you and your girlfriend all the best, lots of love and luck. Most important - be happy, pal :)

I've been busy lately and not really in the mood to post/convince anybody.
However here I've fallen into temptation of posting something. Looks like you friend ran into a really decent Russian woman. My congrats! :) Drop a line when you're in Moscow and of course good luck! How did you earn your living in Poland? Native speakers of English have good chances to get a seemly job in Moscow. You won't starve for sure...

Nat, you can't imagine what a big pleasure for me to see zapadny ukrainec being kind (even obliquely) toward a Russian woman. :)

No...i did not listen , and now i must pay the price....Ukraine , and in particular the city of KIEV will always hold very special memories for us....

Next time i am in Ukraine i shall visit L,viv

Is chateau Wildrover up for sale?

I have not thought about what i am going to do with the farm...i don,t need to sell it , but the money would come in handy right now...are you looking for one...?

Drop a line when you're in Moscow

Drop a line...i will do better than that , i will invite you over to Plescheevo for a beer or three...maybe even some wodka...!

Whilst i was in Poland i did earn some money teaching English , so its an option in Moscow , but i am willing to do anything...My lady has lots of friends in business , so i am sure to find something to earn some money... Eventually i hope to start a business there , when i sell a house in the UK and have some money...

Be mindful of your personal safety in Moscow

A good piece of advice.

Otherwise, have a blast of a life in Russia, sir.

All the best, wildrover! Be mindful of your personal safety in Moscow.

I lived in London for a good number of years , and survived that , Moscow is not so much different..In my experiance cities are the same all over the world , there are parts where its not safe to be , and parts where it is...The trick is knowing which is which..?

My good lady was born in Moscow , and has lived there all her life , so i shall have a great guide to steer me clear of the not so good parts of Moscow...

By next summer we will be out of the city in a national park , a nice house by the side of a very pretty lake , close to a village where all the houses are made of wood...it will be a world of difference , but yet only two hours drive from Moscow...

If only for the fact that this is the first thread I've read on this forum where nary a slight, nor ill wishes have been expressed; I wish you and your lady a long & blissfully happy future together . . .

. . . gives me hope that I may be so fortunate one day! :)

Funny you should say that....but one of my crazy ambitions is to drive there in the winter using a specially prepared Russian army truck....

Then you'll have to learn how to drink vodka not with these small shot glasses, but with a ladle. Anyway, good luck in Matuschka Russia.
