Day 33 / 11.8. You & me and a car.. and Bam

November 28, 2014

What is the first thing you do, when you wake up. You take another shower, because it will be the last one for couple of days. And then – breakfast. It seems like we are the only guests and staff is still sleepy. We get pre-made sandwitches and cold eggs. It’s good we have a […]

Day 32 / 10.8. Ulaan Outskirts

November 28, 2014

After succesfully conquering Breakfast for Champions, we get our cameras out and decide that today, we travel in one car. Mitshubishi will have a day off and we will drive in our Ford. We have to tidy our backseats for the first time since Ljubljana. Looks like ages ago we done that before launch of […]

Day 31 / 9.8. Shock: Civilization

November 28, 2014

Right before we set our course for Ulaan-Bataar, we decide to take a quick stop and step into Erdene ZuuKhiid. We have to wait for Mongols to wake up, so we afford our breakfast on the nearby meadow. From the distance, we can see a big heard of sheep and goats approaching – and pass right […]

Day 30 / 8.8. Day for noise

November 18, 2014

Travelling in a group (considered as multiple car convoy travelling) is a big relief when it comes to troubles, because you know you have a familiar pair of hand available and that you don’t need to wait whole day for someone to stop for you or tow you to the next garage. And because of […]

Day 29 / 7.9. Day for Hot springs

November 18, 2014

After morning coffee, bedroom transforms back into car and we enter the city of Bayankhongor. Cities are different here; they are having basic ingreedients of a city like school, bank, shop and post office, and are surrounded with small houses and gers, parceled properties. Because it rains, we hit hotel for lunch. It’s not a […]

Day 28 / 6.8. Sandbox Games

November 18, 2014

Wow, no mosquitoes, no flies. Not a single buzz around, for the first time. We are too high, we should thought of that sooner. Katja is sick, seriously – we are on painkillers, sleeping and throwing up. It is very hard to be in the car in this heat (we cover our legs not to […]

Day 27 / 5.8. The Great Plains

November 18, 2014

We leave for Altay from our humble camp near the stream. This time, not the Altay The Mountain Range, but Altay, main city in the district. We are greeted by eagles and killed few insects with idea of travelling with us.   We went across all valley and found some tarmac again. Yes, tarmac – this […]

Day 26 / 4.8. Water and freedom

November 18, 2014

Mosquitoes are there also in the morning. You just can’t believe it, so we wake up and wash our teeth, clear our camp and run away. Battle wounds are big, and everything itches you. Aaargh. Hugo has entire neck covered with bites. Breakfast is not possible, so we skip it and head for the city. […]

Day 25 / 3.8. BzzzZzz

November 18, 2014

Here we go again. New day, fresh air and loads of flies, when we open our tents. We find no peace, so we skip breakfast and get ready to leave quick. We find tarmac, for couple of kilometers on our way out.    We decide that we want to taste true Mongolia and continue our […]

Day 24 / 2.8. Without borders

November 4, 2014

You have to wake up and leave the bed right at the moment when the sun comes up and we get ready to drive right to the border. We have less than 300 kilometers left on this beautiful Gorno-Altaysk region and because things can get complicated at the border as we know from various blogs […]
