Hello! My name is Maksim. I live in Estonia, the new member state of the European Union. First of all I'd like to confess - I'm not a helicopter designer nor a pilot :) I'm just an ordinary MSCE working for a big power company. Aviation and its history is only a hobby for me.
I started my homepage in 1997. At first it was no more than "a collection of links and a photo of the cat", as my friend said about it.
But aviation and helicopters isn't all I take an interest in. My other hobbies are travels, photography, computers and the Internet, various maps and atlases. At the age of 7 I already knew all capitals of all countries in the world :)
Here, on my new web page, you can find some info and photos about interesting sights you may visit if you happen to be in Estonia.
You also can have a look at photos I made in 2005 during the road trip across Europe. I have never driven a car so far away from home before - we went through Latvia, Lithuania and Poland and then visited Germany, Austria, Italy and Slovenia.
And here are some photos from a trip to Montenegro in September 2006. Four new countries - Serbia, Montenegro, Albania and Croatia.
And below are some new photos from my Trans-Siberian journey of 2007. Have you ever been to Vladivostok ? :)
