‘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 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.

Read more what we did there and how we spend our time in beautiful Georgia.
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.
For a short stopover we went to Budva and of course, if you are already in that region, also to Sveti Stefan.

We will tell you where this place is in this short blogpost!
