🇮🇹 Giorno 1: stasera siamo arrivati a Praga, pronti per il party di lancio ufficiale! 🇬🇧 Day 1: today we arrived in Praga, at the official launch location! . . .
🇮🇹Un’altra tappa imperdibile del viaggio: il cratere di Darvaza,,o “porta dell’inferno” un giacimento di gas naturale collassato, grande come un capo da calcio, che brucia ininterrottamente dal 1971! 🇬🇧Probably during our trip we will be stay overnight near the best firecamp ever: the Darvaza gas crater , or “Door to Hell”! It is a natural gas field collapsed in Turkmenistan, in the middle of Karakum desert: the diameter of the crater is 69m and its depth is 30, more or less like a football field and its glown at night can be seen for 10 km about.. Geologists set it on fire to prevent the spread of methane gas, and it burns since 1971, so long before any of us was born.. . . .
Since the comparison with a Maserati GT was not enough, we agreed in looking for a far more epic vehicle to compare to Piero! Best option found : DeLorean obviously!! ⚡⚡ . . .
Another highlight of our trip Will be Turkey. FACTS: It has ben inhabited since Paleolitic, then romanempire and bizantines. From the 13th the ottomanempire became a word power. universalsuffrage for both sexes has been applied since 1933. Turkey has 17 UNESCO world sites. Ankara is renowed for angoracats angorarabbits and goats. In the map you can see the provinces we are crossing in light blue . .
Our route to Mongolia is passing through epic landscapes. One of the is the Pamir Highway. The M41, known informally and more commonly as the Pamir Highway is a road traversing the Pamir Mountains through Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan in Central Asia. It starts from Dushanbe, extends to the Kyrgyzstan border, before cutting in on a direct route to Khorog and finishes in Osh. This highway is denitely described as one of the most spectacular in the world. It has been Built by Soviet military engineers between 1931 and 1934 to facilitate troop transport and provisioning, retracing the anc ient silk road. In all its potholed, yak-used glory, is a major highlight of visits to the region and It’s the world’s second highest highway, after the Karakorum one: it passes through the 4,655-meter (15,270 ft) high Ak-Baital Pass and past Lake Karakul. The roadway is paved is some areas, but is mostly unpaved, the landscape is lunar barren and otherworldly, though a little wetter than the earth’s orbiting rock, This is a hard climb even for 4-wheel drive vehicles and it can produce headache and difficulty breathing. . .
This is actually our Visa situation today… Should we hurry up a little bit? . . .
