The English traveler Nikita Greci was forced to postpone the campaign for 15 thousand km from Magadan to London on Yakut horses. The reason is the coronavirus pandemic and the restrictions introduced.

“Unfortunately, because of the epidemic that has captured almost the entire globe, I had to postpone the start of my expedition until next January,” Nikita Greci told EastRussia.

However, at the beginning of March this year in Verkhoyansk, the 22-year-old traveler managed to conduct a short but effective preparation for his expedition. He ended up in Yakutia when there were 50-degree frosts that helped to understand what was to be felt during the expedition. The traveler did not lose time and was also able to shoot footage for the film. Now it is being installed, however the trailer is ready, viewers can appreciate it.

The government of Yakutia officially offered its support for the expedition, since it will be carried out on Yakut horses, and the republic will have the most difficult part. Nikita Greci decided to go from ocean to ocean after calculating the history of Cossack Dmitry Peshkov, who in the 200th century rode a horse for XNUMX days from Blagoveshchensk to St. Petersburg. His record is still not broken. The English traveler was inspired by this story and decided to go his way on Yakut horses, but not to break a record, but to test himself in an extreme journey.

Nikita Greci plans to travel from Magadan to Yakutsk, then to Baikal, to Irkutsk, Altai, from there either to Moscow or Kazakhstan, and then to Europe. His expedition may stretch for a year and a half or more.
