Suiting Up

After getting passed the equator it was time to start thinking about our planned “gap” in the trip. I had agreed to join Ross with the caveat that I needed to go on a North American wedding tour in July and this seemed to correspond with Ross’s need to renew health...
Russia – Back to the Motherland

Russia – Back to the Motherland

And boom just like that we are back in the Motherland although the landscape hasn’t changed much from Mongolia, the towns already look a little bit more organized and well supplied. After finding a place to park our Hodori for the night, we rushed to the store...
Mongolia – Never Bores You

Mongolia – Never Bores You

The route that we are following is called the “Southern Route”. I’ve heard all kinds of stories about it, from boring with a good road to dusty, truck infested hellhole. After our Gobi to Bayankhongor trailblazing, i thought to myself:...
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...
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...
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...

Mongolia – Overlanding Overview

This is it – this is what you have all been waiting for. Our 20th country! Mongolia, the land of dreams, no roads, steppes and sheep… a lot of sheep. This is just the overview of the things we did in Mongolia in the past couple of weeks. More detailed...
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...
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...
Concrete Jungle

Concrete Jungle

We overstayed Panama roughly with 30 days. It was an interesting time period with lots of sweat and nerves, filled with paperwork and uncertainty. With all that there was plenty to lay the camera lens on, actually more than I expected. Panama is a beautiful country,...

Fellow Overlanders

This was another unexpected publish from the L.I.F.E (Litle Indian Family of Explorers) our companions and friends through the Nepal earthquake. We met the Baid Family on line while we were trying to organise our China crossing. A crazy dream that Anad  (the...
Um milhão de gazelas

Um milhão de gazelas

Há, no leste da Mongólia, uma linda região de estepes. De acordo com alguns biólogos, esse é um dos últimos ecossistemas de pastos ainda intactos no mundo. É um espetáculo da natureza, nós podemos assim dizer, pois além de ser uma vasta planície onde enxerga-se...
