Visiting Chernobyl

In the footsteps of... (2)

Urban explorer and motorcycle enthusiast Elena Filatova was hot shit on the net about a year and a half ago when she first published her Ghost Town story. Appearantly, she stretched the truth a little and never drove through the "zona" by bike, she made that half-day trip on a bus with other tourists (probably multiple times).

^^ One of Elena's pictures.

I read about Chernobyl tourism for the first time on Elena's site, and even though her story is part fabrication, it motivated me to go and find out more about visiting the zone and to document my local exploration trips better. Have fun (re-)reading Ghost Town.
