I’m a pack rat. All it takes it one look around my bedroom and you’ll find every manner of clutter and things piled up. I love to collect things, display them, and I carry on doing this until there is hardly any space left. You can imagine then how it is when I pack to […]
Hey everyone, Sora here again. It’s thursday, so that means it’s the prime time for a little throw back. Now back during the rally I used to tell you all about the things we saw from crazy poo filled lakes in Romania to the slaughtered goat on the Mongol Steppe. Well thanks to Travelstache , […]
The Nerdventurists started with Kristina and Sora in search of adventure with a nerdy twist. It changed a little in leading up to The Mongol Rally and during the rally, but we wanted to go back to our original plan. What would happen when nerdy girls traveled the world? Well, we’re gonna find out. The […]

Goodness it has been a while since we’ve posted, or at least it feels that way. Days are starting to just blur into “sleep, wake up, drive, sleep” And it’s been ruthlessly hot. Other teams in the Mongol Rally have made it far, some even already reaching Kazakhstan. After a lovely day spent in Istanbul, […]
