Mongolia – Bayankhongor – Real Mongolia Experience

Mongolia – Bayankhongor – Real Mongolia Experience

The excitement of asphalt didn’t last too long. Soon on a dry, smooth and, most importantly, quite pavement we discovered that our front suspension is making an awful amount of noise. When you are offroading everything in the car is rattling, shifting and...
Mongolia – Gobi Yourself

Mongolia – Gobi Yourself

Sitting around in the hostel, we tried to figure out what else to do in Mongolia. It’s not like there is a shortage of things to be done, just we never really prepared. We looked around other people’s blogs and found some GPS tracks for Gobi. Perfect, i...
Wild Coast statt Wildlife

Wild Coast statt Wildlife

In Bluff, nahe Durban haben wir das Beast wieder voll aufgerödelt, die Wasser- und Dieseltanks randvoll getankt, Vorräte eingekauft und die Gasflasche gefüllt. Alles ist auf 100%, auch unser Andrenalinspiegel. Die Heimreise beginnt, Transafrika auf der Ostroute. Vom...
Mongolia – Orkhon valley

Mongolia – Orkhon valley

Similarly named to an island we just spent destroying our sense of what is the right way to drive a car and mostly our livers for a week, if you haven’t read the Olkhon Island adventures with Korandovod…please do so now. It’s really for your...
Se os mongóis não gostam de peixe…

Se os mongóis não gostam de peixe…

… nós gostamos! Passamos uns diazinhos acampados ao lado deste belo lago na Mongolia, onde a água é límpida e a pesca é farta, pois quase não há predadores vorazes humanos para acabar com os peixes. Em meia hora de pesca tivemos que abandonar a vara – já...

Monthly living costs in Chiang Mai, Thailand

I know, such posts can be a bit dull at times, but when preparing an extended trip or to live abroad this information  can come in handy. As we are in Chiang Mai now for about one and a half months we are not the complete authority, but we start to get a picture. With...
Mongolia – Ulaanbaatar

Mongolia – Ulaanbaatar

For some reason, I felt nervous. Even though this is our 20th country…and that probably means at least 19 border crossings, so there is nothing to be afraid, right? Maybe its genetic imprinting, from the time i was a little boy I’ve thought of borders as a...

Russia – Good-bye For Now

Russia – Good-bye For Now

On the road the adventure never stops. The plan was to find a hostel, some wi-fi and shower…yes in that order. You guys back home probably don’t realize the full extent to which our lives have been linked to internet. Although it is absolutely awesome to...
Edelweiss na Mongólia!

Edelweiss na Mongólia!

Nos dois meses que viajamos pela Mongólia, não pudemos deixar de perceber o quão florido estavam os seus campos, especialmente nas regiões de altitude. As milhares de flores selvagens que colorem os pastos verdes possuem o seu ápice de floração nos meses de junho e...

Chiang Mai – welcome to the digital nomad capitol

Remember the post I wrote some time ago? The Don’t plan too much ahead one? Well, I think our experience in Chiang Mai is a good example for what I wrote back then. Our original plan (find the mistake) was to drive all the way along the border of Thailand first to the...
The Hidden War

The Hidden War

​The ‘Secret War’ in Laos was a covert proxy war, fought in the shadows of the Vietnam War and was fuelled by the belligerent global Cold War superpowers. The war was fought between the Communist Pathet Lao which was effectively organised, equipped...

China – 3G internet howto

Digital nomading while overlanding in China is a whole challenge of its own regarding the Internet censorship, aka the Great Firewall, and to make it even more challenging there is an expensive pitfall regarding the selection of the right mobile network operator for...
Um oásis no Deserto de Gobi

Um oásis no Deserto de Gobi

A sequencia de fotos definem, em nossa concepção, o que é um oásis. Em palavras traduziríamos assim: um paraíso onde há água e vida no meio da imensidão seca, inóspita e imperdoável do Deserto de Gobi. Khongoryn Els é uma formação de dunas de areia que chegam a 300...
