mongol rally 2012
Get flash to fully experience Pearltrees
Russia is, let’s be clear, kinda awesome. And kinda terrifying, too. We travelled through around 4.500 km of it, over roads which were fantastic, and roads which were primarily roadworks, and roads which, quite cimply, induced much terror. And we met the most terrifying thing of all: the Siberian Mosquito of Doom. But first things first: the border crossing into Russia, from Latvia. We have chosen this one on purpose, as we had heard that, it being a Schengen Zone border, and quite far north, it should be quiet and civilised.
Below are some preparation tips for those of you that are considering doing the Mongol Rally in forthcoming years:
Lemuria ( pron.: / l ɨ ˈ m jʊər i ə / ) [ 1 ] is the name of a hypothetical " lost land " variously located in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. The concept's 19th century origins lie in attempts to account for discontinuities in biogeography ; however, the concept of Lemuria has been rendered obsolete by modern theories of plate tectonics . Although sunken continents do exist – like Zealandia in the Pacific as well as Mauritia [ 2 ] and the Kerguelen Plateau in the Indian Ocean – there is no known geological formation under the Indian or Pacific Oceans that corresponds to the hypothetical Lemuria.

A little splash of color this morning... The first thing we did when we woke up was check the rear tire to see if it still had air.
