Up to September 2007, Vladimir and his soul mate Mr Goldman were inseparable. The travelled, lived, loved and laughed together, but one drunken evening they parted company. To this today nobody knows what drove these two best of friends to take such a dramatic decision, but it was clear at the time that there were no third parties involved…and that although they have been apart for three and a half years, their love remains indestructible.
Perhaps it was the sedentary lifestyle that drove Vladimir out onto the road, for that is where he has been ever since. From the beautiful west coast of America to communist Cuba, via his native Russia, Dubai and Egypt. He took time out in Sweden, before dodging bullets in Afghanistan and an infamous “lost weekend” in Amsterdam. Last week Vladimir returned to Berlin to celebrate his birthday, but only to find that his beloved Mr Goldman was himself out of town. An irony, indeed, that Alanis herself would have been proud to commit to song.
Drowning his sorrows, Vladimir celebrated (of course) at Goldman’s Bar, and would like to thank everyone at The Circus for their hospitality and the bar staff for the free boot of beer.
To mark his visit, we have decided to use the opportunity to showcase a selection of snaps from Vladimirs adventures around the world, and if you would like to make friends and see more pics, go and check out his facebook profile to see where he turns up next…
