ADV riders from Estonia – temple ruins

June 9 – 2012 – Update to this post:  As our weather was decidedly gloomy today, 
I stayed in and sketched all day.  So here is a new sketch from their ride report:
Not sure where they found this little guy!
June 7, 2012 – Apparently I’m not finished sketching from these yet!  Another sketch from the photos of the ADV riders “From Estonia with love”.  Reference photos for these sketches can be found on an amazing motorcycle ride report. (I will add location details at a later date.)

From Estonia with love

Reference photos for these sketches can be found on an amazing motorcycle ride report:
A young couple from Estonia took a motorcycle trip around the world.  It took them several years, and they kept a blog on the Adventure riders website.  Margus and Karlina traveled 170,000 km over 1,126 days, and traveled through 70 countries.  The photographs are what dazzled me – the quality, and the content – they have fantastic images of people, places and things they encountered.  I do not presume that my sketches are anywhere close to the quality of their photos, just that I was touched by them.  So, here are a couple – just a start.  I received their permission to post these.
If you have some time, stop by and read their report – you won’t be bored!

 Not sure of these locations exactly – From a friend’s photo taken during his 3 week motorcycle ride out west. He has the best pictures, posted here: <a href=”http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=701959&page=5″ rel=”nofollow”>www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=701959&page=4</a>  so his friends back home could follow his adventures.
