Mongolia, part 2

Checkpoint 2, Hoffe This town is easy to remember because it sounds like Hoth, as in the battle of Hoth in starwars. The drive there was intense. A huge convoy of cars driving through desert, dirt roads, mountain passes and marsh. Driving up through the mountain pass, I was leading and we passed a family [...]

Mongolia, Part 1

The Mongolian border compound. Because we’re importing cars into the country we had big fees we needed to pay. Luckily the company organising the Mongol Rally covers it… however it takes up to 36 hours to wire the money, so the border sets up essentially a refugee compound for the ralliers to stay in while [...]

Russia, part 2

The people who stayed at Almaty met up at a campsite before we entered Russia. This has now become our convoy and we’ve got some wicked people in it. Leaving khasakstan we only had 2 police stops. The deal now with police stops is if one car gets pulled over, everyone stops. It becomes a [...]

You’re literally a walking ATM machine and they’ll inconvenience you in any way possible to get your money. So corrupt and very unpleasant people. Their [...]

When we were at the border getting “checked in” to Russia, we knew we were entering an area marked red “DO NOT GO” by the UK. We told the Russian border guards where we were going and they said, “drive straight to hotel. You stay in hotel. Very dangerous”. We drove straight to a hostel [...]

After a 3hour wait at the border to get into Georgia, we were free from Turkey. As we drove into Georgia the scenery is pretty ghetto. Cows are everywhere just walking around down the road. Batumi We drove straight to Batumi which is a major city. It seems pretty developed on the boulevard, but as [...]
