Day 171 - Battling Crosswinds, Again: A Challenging 5-Hour Ride From Omsk to Ishim

Updated: Oct 1, 2023

Day 171 (21 June 2023) - Omsk to Ishim, Russia

 

DAY 171 (21 JUNE 2023) – I left Omsk for a 5 hour ride (340 km) to Ishim. There was a heavy thunderstorm in the morning, so I started my journey a bit later, at 10 am.


At certain places, I had to endure strong winds as well, but I arrived safely at my hostel in the town if Ishim. I had a friendly chat with a hostel mate. Since I didn’t know how to cook, he made me some tasty chicken soup for dinner.


Along the way, I came across the remains of charred forests and burnt trees in several places along the highway. These were a result of raging wildfires that happened last year! I saw many trees with yellowish brown leaves, creating a picturesque landscape of its own. At one point, I also came across a small chapel along the highway.
