The (Un)Route

Blank canvas.

We had a lot of time on our hands while we were waiting for the perfect car.

And while we were waiting we might as well try to create a route of sorts. This might seems slightly strange with all the words of spontaneous ideas from the organizer. And I agree. The route should indeed be spontaneous. The adventure would be even more… Well, adventurous.

The search (pt. 2)

We have been looking at the new ads every day and were waiting for the perfect Fiesta.  

There were a lot of cars on sale. After a few weeks we already knew a lot of suitable car ads on the internet. And although we were searching for something not that often seen on the Mongol Rally, one needs to make certain sacrifices from time to time. Mateja found a suitable car.

I love a good challenge and that’s why the Mongol Rally kept popping up in my mind.  

Have I mentioned I love to travel? (I’m sure someone’s screaming into the screen: “A thousand times”). What I mean is I’m no stranger to planning.  As planning goes, I try to make pretty accurate and detailed route and the same goes for the budget. I always try to make as good of an estimate as I can. The only thing written in stone is the length of the trip.
