Day 43 / 21.8. What counts the most

November 28, 2014

We fly to Slovenia and safely landed. It was real to expect that someone would come to greet us. We are expecting 20-30 people, because we landed in the middle of the afternoon. But, there is crowd waiting for us, our family, friends, photographers, sponsors, even national TV showed up. And wind orchestra from Tržič and Katja’s choir Carmen […]

Day 42 / 20.8. Bull at the east

November 28, 2014

Istanbul surprises us. It is quite sleepy in the morning. And there are all these salesman that are desperate to sell you something, anything. Colours and spirits, all beauty the city has to offer. We are impressed with architecture, and we are busy shopping. Katja is desperately searching for clothes and then the day ends with Matej’s […]

Day 41 / 19.8. There and back again

November 28, 2014

We race entire city in a cab, driving in suspicious areas and board the airplane. We then survive 9 hours flying across all Central Asia. Right before the takeoff Matej receive a special check because of the sand we are trying to smuggle across. We neggotiate one small bottle, but put all 2,5 litres of […]

Day 40 / 18.8. For Good

November 28, 2014

In the morning, we collect everything that we would take back home and once more wipe the front panel. We refill with last few drops of Slovenian diesel and drive towards the car wash facility. They take our keys and move the car, then wash the car and … key were gone. We wait for […]

Day 39 / 17.8. First among The Red

November 28, 2014

Ulaan Baatar  or The Red Hero inspires. Glitch and greyness at one streets. There is no typical poverty seen, but there is ger settlement only 100 meters from beautiful parlaiment and 40-storeys 5-star hotel. We pay a visit in bakery and then take a look around the main square.     They found the highest number of dinosaur […]

Day 38 / 16.8. All roads lead to UB

November 28, 2014

We were in Ulaan before, simply because you can not avoid the city once you are in the region and you want to go into different part of the country. Or you simply want to drive the best roads they have. And we are going there for the last time, in a while at least. […]

Day 37 / 15.8. Buddhist Woodstock

November 28, 2014

It’s six o’clock and we are already in the car, rushing and cutting corners. We have to reach Amarbayasgalant Khiid by 10.00. It is the biggest Buddhist temple in Mongolia, their architecture main achievement. And on this very day (14th and 15th of August), there is the biggest Buddhist gathering in Mongolia going on. Lonely Planet describes it as Buddhist Woodstock. […]

Day 36 / 14.8. Back to the mainlands

November 28, 2014

If you are in Mongolia and you’re driving south – sooner or later you will have to drive back north. We decide to take the same road back, because it is the best road in the area. When we returned we noticed that Mongol road workers extended tarmac road by ten kilometers in mere two days. Drive […]

Day 35 / 13.8. Accompained by dunes and dinosaurs

November 28, 2014

True desert with sank, that slowly fills all the spots in our car and with temperatures, that finally allows short sleeves and shorts. Dunes look like they would be painted there, in between grass and rocky mountains. Their tops are curved and shaped by wind. We are located in the district, called Khonghorian Els – […]

34 / 12.8. A thousand-star camping spot

November 28, 2014

It is a promising sunny day, when we wake up and we found out that we were witnessing the heaviest rain they haven’t had in ages. Dalandzadgad is half flooded, some houses are still full of water and finding decent road turns out to be quite challenging. We drive across fields and then find a […]
