The last days in Asia. The opportunity to visit urban Korea, a missed chance to meet Baby Face and the long flight to the US.
Through August 2017 we drove from Kjachta at the Mongolian border to Vladivostok in Russia and shipped the car to South Korea. Here some practical information about the journey.
Through July 2017 we travelled from Ehrenhot to Altanbulag in Mongolia. Here some practical information about the journey.
From Russia’s Far East to South Korea. Back to real Asia. Nevertheless, a travel thru a country rather unusual to us.
7 days, nearly 4000km thru Siberia and the Russian Far East. Good roads, endless forests and weather getting increasingly rainy. But also a visit to lost villages and towns spread, breathing still the spirit of the good old Soviet Union.
Ulaan Bataar – Mongolia’s capital. On to Russia, westwards to Lake Baikal and Irkutsk, Siberia’s very own Venice.
Mass tourism in Mongolia? You wouldn’t believe it. But it’s reality. It’s Nadaam time. A tribute to some rather unusual days in Mongolia’s remote countryside.
In June 2017 we travelled in 22 days through China – from Lao (Mohan border) to Mongolia (Ehrenhot). A total of approx. 5’600km. Here some practical information about the journey.
A trip thru grasslands to the historic and cultural center of Mongolia. Visits to the local Nadaam festival where real men can proof their superiority to anything else on this world.
