November 4, 2014

After incredible short night (due to blog maintainance and answering bunch of e-mails / sending footage) we are woken up by noisy alarm. We found this hotel late in the night and were put in themed rooms. Ours was Diana, Russian erotic dancer that is covering all the walls. Still better that Netherlands, sleeping in […]

Day 22 / 31.7. Slovene-Dutch formation

November 4, 2014

What is better than escape the town and prepare breakfast on the top of the hill, surrounded by fields of gold. We’re eating pancakes with melted chocolate and coffee, what a perfect start of the day. The Dutch part of the team consists of recently retired Mr. Hugo and Ms. Yamina that explored almost every […]

Day 21 / 30.7. Tongue behind you teeth

November 3, 2014

Last days of internet are slowly coming, Mongolia is closer every day. Medical problems are not bothering us anymore, yesterdays healing sleep helped us to push into our last thousand kilometers in Kazakhstan for a while. Katja tries luck with the road and gives up after three hours, because she is told she drives too […]

Day 20 / 29.7. WC

Our plan was to leave Almaty behind us as soon as possible and travel as far north as we can, towards Russia and then Mongolia. BUT, we were contacted by another Slovene, Maks Selan, professional hockey player that recently signed for Kazakhstan league for a year. And because in these few thousand kilometers that are […]

Day 19 / 28.7. “Privet” from Mr. President itself

November 3, 2014

On our way to well-deserved breakfast after cleaning the campside we wonder about amount of policemen on the road. They are literally covering every corner, every hundred meters al least one, every crossroad three of them. There, where only yesterday were groups of parked cars on the streets, today is none. Roads are cleaned and […]

November 3, 2014

Calm night tonight and even more tranquile morning, water is calling. I’m first on the beach, of course. That is followed with two portions of pancakes with best service ever – Timur and we continue where we left yesterday. He is always accompanied by his younger cousin that is proudly showing our yesterday’s present – […]

Day 17 / 26.7. Calm before the storm

November 3, 2014

Sleeping in the tent ends with first sunbeams. Quality of sleep depends on nightly visits we have had and loud music that comes from all around us.   We set ourselves a dining room with biggest windows and the most beautiful view on the lake and misty Mountains of Heaven as they are called here. Nearby […]

Day 16 / 25.7. Bishkek and Issky Kul – Are you really cool?

November 2, 2014

Our sleep was interrupted at 10.00 with security guy, we parked in front of trash cans. Of course he is very interested if everything is well locked down, and we slowly get up and leave hotel. We walk around Bishkek – Kyrgyzstan capital and try to exchange some money into local currency. But they won’t […]

Day 15 / 24.7. Bribe.me

November 2, 2014

Morning and soft, cozy bed, that refills our batteries. After that we figured out that our shower is not working and they had to send maintenance crew to show to us, that you have to use sequence of buttons to get the water running down the pipes. We return to Iskracom and they are again […]

Day 14 / 23.7. Alma-ata

November 2, 2014

As usual we should start with… We woke up into a… but, we didn’t. We are awake since yesterday and we are already feeling it, this one will be a long one. We park the car in the shade and wash our teeth on the street and then go straight into Gorky park, slowly and […]
