‘Welcome to Mongolia’ is one of the first things we hear after arriving in Ulan Bator- capital of Mongolia. This is the beginning of many friendly faces and an interesting time. We will stay way longer than we planned and would have our most exciting road trip ever. Mongolia moved us, that’s for sure. We will come back! Our workation in Ulan Bator was a success and we learned to understand the love-hate relationship towards the city a bit more.
We only spend a few days in Bishkek. But for sure we liked it. We have some nice food recommendations for you, especially when you need some western food after many months of traveling. Read all about it in our so far shortest blog post!
We really liked our time in this rough but beautiful country. Landscapes that blow your mind, friendly people and an interesting capital Bishkek. Kyrgyzstan has the second biggest mountain lake in the world and a lot to offer for tourists and travelers. We had a wonderful time on our intense road trip.
We travelled from the new capital Astana to the former capital Almaty by train for 24h - from the north to the south of Kazakhstan. In the south we went for a road trip to some beautiful places and found out that the country has a lot to offer - if you can go there. With mixed feelings and an early cancellation we experienced our road trip and the south of Kazakhstan.
In this blogpost you will find out if we liked Almaty and why our tour through the south of this country was an odyssey for us.
Astana is the capital of Kazakhstan and the youngest capital in the world: only twenty years ago the still acting president decided to transform an unknown city in the wild Kazakh steppe into an imposing and modern city. Visiting such a young city was very interesting for us and a totally unexpected experience. In this blogpost you will read what we did at this weird but interesting place and why we liked it in a way.
After spending a lot of time on the countryside of Bulgaria, we were happy to spend some time in Tbilisi - the capital of Georgia. We were lucky enough to find the perfect place to stay - a tiny garden house in the old town. Here we had the perfect location for a productive workation and for exploring the city. Read more what we did there and how we spend our time in beautiful Georgia.
A staycation is normally something you do at home – vacation at home. Over the years we broadened the term. On travels you can live for a little while at one place and it becomes your “staycation”, before traveling on. Read all about our Travel staycation in Bulgaria and why we really needed to relax!
Skopje is an interesting city which is marked by long history and new oversized buildings and statues. We decided to go to Skopje because we heard the food is good, and also to have a break on our way to Bulgaria. A pragmatic approach. We are happy, that we choose to stay for a few days with a beautiful loft as our home. In this blogpost you will find out why.
Our arrival in Tirana, Albania after Montenegro was far different than we expected. In preparation of Albania we saw a great documentary about it. So we were a little bit affected by that and expected stunning nature instead of a busy capital. However we spent two weeks there equally busy like the city itself.
Albania is one of the most beautiful countries we have ever been to. Its nature is incredible and the landscapes often have a sense of exotic and peacefulness. We travelled around for one week in Albania. From Tirana we started to the west coast, then to the south, the east and back. Unforgettable moments! In this blogpost we will give you the highlights of our road trip about landscapes, people and special accommodations.
