On a empty field near a quiet little town called Topki.


Just me, LemonadeCellar.


Get to Topki by bus, walk the remaining distance, return in the same manner, be home for dinner.


The first part (getting there) went well. After a 50-minute long bus ride I got off the bus and saw Topki for the first time. And, well, it's a typical Russian town with Khrushchev buildings and unpresentable-looking private houses. Walking for an hour (5km) is boring (damn it, should've taken my earpieces) and uneventful. Wandered around the circle-shaped crossing for five minutes because GPS stopped working. Walking on the field was easy (good thing it didn't rain yesterday, otherwise this would've been a disaster). Obviously, there was no one at the hashpoint, not even a single farmer (and I even made up a story about making an article describing the life of an ordinary farmer for my college project), so I just placed my note and left. The second part (getting home) didn't go quite according to the plan, as I had to spend an hour doing nothing because I didn't bother looking at the bus schedule and my phone's battery couldn't handle the pressure. Overall, pretty decent for my first expedition.
