We like Google Maps, they’re nice. However, in terms of route and duration we beg to differ. Plus, we don’t do ferries. With this said, our “tentative route” will not be what’s in the picture, instead it will be: (Spain) Madrid – Barcelona – (France) Marseille – (Italy) Genova – (Slovenia) Ljubljana – (Hungary) Budapeste – (Ukraine) Mukachevo – Khmelnytskyi – Kiev – Poltava – Donets’k – (Russia) Rostov-on-donu – Elista – Astrakhan – (Kazakstan) Atirau – Aktobe – Kostanai – Astana – Maykin – Semey – (Russia) – this is a tricky one, will be there about 2 days on the way to the Mongolian border – (Mongolia) Altanbulag – Ulan Bator

Good to know that before we cross the Gobi desert we’ll run into an oasis (aka: the Republic of Kazantip). However, this oasis is not without its dangers.

Well, you’ve seen our ambulance but you don’t know her name…She’s called Serena, after one of the most beautiful Italian girls if not the most, who resides in the pearl of the Mediterranean (that’s Malta for the ignorants). Special thanks to Alberto Tejero for accompanying us on the “buy day” of the ambulance in the whereabouts of Madrid’s Aguacete Industrial Polygon and also his donation of an ultra modern radio with CD and USB (14,000 kms without music would not be pretty). We also thank Joao Formigal for co-piloting Serena from Madrid to Portugal where it is now being “tricked out” big style by master mechanic Antonio Joaquim. Finally we thank Cristina (another rally participant) for hooking us up with the contact of the ambulance seller and also her moral support. Let’s ride!
