#DAY9 #MONGOLRALLY2017 297 miles (477.97 kms for the metric-civilised world) #Kars to #Tbilisi We want to avoid the pack of tourists while visiting the Ani ruins. That’s why we move quite early from Kars to reach the site as soon as it opens. We end up being slightly late, but apparently also the tourists wanted …

#DAY8 #MONGOLRALLY2017 430 miles #Giresun to #Kars 3126 miles done so far, 5000 km, almost one third of our journey. We asked ourselves at the beginning when we would have got bored of writing these posts. Now we guess how long will it take for you to get bored of reading them. This thing is …

#DAY7 #MONGOLRALLY2017 407 miles (442.04 miliarum for the ancient Romans) #Safranbolu to #Giresun Today’s problem is where to go next. We know this situation will keep coming during the Mongol Rally, more and more often. Our goal is the Soumela Monastery (about 10 hours away), but we wouldn’t mind also a stop for a dive …

#DAY6 #MONGOLRALLY2017 422 miles (366.70 nautical miles for Popeye the Mariner) #Edirne to #Safranbolu Early wake up. There is a post office where to queue in order to get the ticket for the Turkish motorway, so that president Erdogan won’t chase us along the way (more likely androids-clones of him) to not have paid the …

#DAY5 #MONGOLRALLY2017 460 miles (740.30 kms for the metric-civilised world) #Belgrade to #Edirne Last leg in the old continent. We left Belgrade early enough (at least this is what we though in that moment) to reach Edirne in the daylight. Driving in Belgrade made us reconsider how nice is driving in Rome. For some unknown …

#DAY4 452 miles (727.42 kms for the metric-civilised world) Brno to Belgrade Waking up in Czech Republic without a hangover is a sin. That’s why we did it. The problem is when you need to exchange local currency (which we hadn’t in that moment) for dollars, and the best employer of the month in the …

#DAY 3 526 miles (846.51 kms for the metric-civilised world) Frankfurt to Brno Our curse about motorways keeps manifesting. We head east, front to Mongolia and back to Milton Keynes, as someone gently reminded us writing it on the car. An endless sequence of motorway works between Germany and Czech Republic (or whatever new name …

#DAY 2 417 miles (671.10 kms for the civilised world) Paris to Frankfurt Probably we haven’t got the MongolRally idea very well. Or probably we just don’t know yet what does it mean driving for 417 miles thinking that whatever the navigator says it’s reliable (many thanks, gmaps, see you in hell). If you add …

#DAY 1 331 miles ran (532.69 kms in the civilised world) Goodwood to Paris The only thing we are sure about right now is that there will be a point in which we won’t able to post stuff. Either because the technology won’t assist us anymore, or more simply because we’ll get bored. A lap …
