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...

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...
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...
Nossa definição para a Mongólia

Nossa definição para a Mongólia

Uma grande fazenda com apenas três porteiras, duas que dão acesso a Rússia, pelo norte e uma que dá acesso a China, pelo sul. Uma vez dentro da fazenda você pode ir e vir para onde quiser, pois tudo é um campo verde sem fim, florido, de todos, não existindo cercas...
