Our ambitious route takes us from London to Mongolia in 5 weeks, which will be around 10,000 miles in total, so it’s not too far! The route sees us cross 20 countries, 3 deserts and 5 mountain ranges, some of which even as travel lovers we never imagined we would visit, especially not in a Nissan Micra!
Countries – England, France, Belgium, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Russia and Mongolia.
Deserts– Karakum Desert Turkmenistan, Kyzylkum Desert Uzbekistan and Gobi Desert Mongolia.
Mountain Ranges – Lesser Caucasus Mountains spanning Georgia and Armenia, Elburz Mountains Iran, Pamir Range Tajikistan, Tien Shan Range Kyrgyzstan and Altai Range spanning Russia and Mongolia.
The route has taken much consideration over several months creating spreadsheets, calculating miles, and researching the amazing sites along the way. This is mainly as we need a rough guide for completion and for our visa applications!
Although it is going to be an adventure of a lifetime we also know it will be a major challenge too, so that’s why we are trying to raise as much money for charity in the process!
We are under no illusions here, the map is the plan….this blog, our vlogs and Instagram are the reality, why not follow us if you want a good laugh…
