If you find a path with no obstacles it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.

Even though we often found ourselves in the real middle of nowhere and in difficult conditions, we always found people who were willing to help us. One day following my GPS and Matteo’s maps that were telling us to follow a direction we got completely lost over a terrible track with sand to our knees and without anyone in sight. Riding our bikes got really hard, especially for me with the excessive weight of my KTM 990. We were unable to find water or gas and started to get worried. Mongolia can be a dangerous trip. Luckily for us, when it was already dark we saw a tiny village in the middle of the desert. This was a lucky star for us. Little villages like this one (Maximum 5 gher) are always moving here in Mongolia so there could have been nothing there that day. That would have been a different story. One of the families hosted us for the night. They fed us and allowed us to spend the night in their Gher. The husband insisted that we took his bed for the night while he slept on the floor. We tried to set up our own tent but he refused and insisted that we took his bed. What a marvelous experience.



The only things we saw on our track for a long time. Our minds started to play games


Camels are always in proximity of sand. Not a good sign for us




Arriving at night
