There’s definitely something special about being alone in nature. However, quickly you’ll learn that these moment’s are only made better when shared
My host Santina opened the door with a warm and welcoming smile and showed me around her awesome flat. I couldn’t believe how easy that was… I was honestly so thankful for it!
Last year I decided to quit my job in Germany and fly over to the land down under – Australia 🐨, that’s when everything started…
If we would’ve followed the advice of the media, we would have never gone to amazing places like Kyaukme. When you travel, you want to be part of the pioneers group – because those are the only ones who get to discover the real essence of foreign countries.
One of the best perks of studying in South East Asia is the travel opportunities you have all around that region. You can fly to Thailand and party 24/7, you can go to the Philippines and chill on world class beaches or you can go to Bali and catch some of the best waves in the world – all you need to do is to book a low cost flight ticket and you’re sorted. However, when Friend Theory cofounders, Carlos and Carlo were studying in Hong Kong, they didn’t want to go for any of these mainstream options, they wanted something more challenging… something exciting!
Our budget for the Mongol Rally was so tight that we even resulted to sleeping in our car on the outskirts of Istanbul to avoid the expensive hostel fees. The concept of Friend Theory would have been the dream on an occasion like this 🙌
The Mongol Rally is a 15,000km Road race that commences from London, England and ends in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. The requirements express that teams must hop aboard a “steed” containing power that does not exceed 1.2cc. Our chosen vehicle for the race, was a 2004, Kia Rio, that was slightly more powerful than the requirements at a mighty 1.3cc. We christened here “KIApatra” as she was a sexy piece of metal, yet was slight rough around the edges.
