Author: Balázs Translated by: Greta Kojsza Writing a subjective essay is a really subjective issue. It’s going to be the 8th one. Kazakhstan is missing (we might go back one day and complement it), because we’ve just passed through and saw such a small part of it. So there would be no point in writing a subjective story on that…

Author: Eni Translated by: Pál Capewell We’ve never been to a marsh park. Even the name doesn’t ring promising, what could one expect? It became a trend that if we sleep in a big town, we spend the mornings taking care of things. Another city tour, grocery shopping or just packing slower than usual, taking our sweet time. Around 40km…

Author: Eni Translated by: Pál Capewell As we rolled out of a tunnel on route G213, we entered Yunnan Province without realizing it. The mountain ranges behind us grew greener and more alive. Balazs and I were really interested in exploring this province as well. China has 56 minorities (!!!) altogether, 28 of which are in Yunnan. More than half…

Author: Eni Translated by: Pál Capewell Our journey to Chengdu was diverse: we passed under airport runways, bridges and above multiple-lane expressways. Hmm, how could I best describe this vibrant, gigantic city? Sichuan province’s capital’s apartment complexes are growing like mushrooms in the rain, the highways are bustling with buses, cars in and out of the city, and bikes, motorbikes…

Author: Balazs Translated by: Pál Capewell In order for you to get a good feel for what Sichuan is like, let me depict the picture in front of me. We are in LeShan, and like the carved Buddha statue of 71 meters, we are sitting at the riverbank and are staring at the river. Over on the other side, an…

Author: Eni Translated by: Pál Capewell In our previous post, you read about the unique landscape of the Tibetan Plateau, Tibetan traditional dress styles, and our ever first pass conquered by bike above 4000m. In this post we will share some insights about the locals and their lifestyles - or at least how we understood what we saw. The Tibetan…

Author: Balazs Translated by: Pál Capewell As we wrote earlier, sadly we had to cancel our plans regarding Tibet. For now, one must go through a travel agency to obtain a permission to enter and spend a pretty penny doing so. If that wasn’t enough, visitors are limited in what they can visit and discover while in Tibet. Point is,…

Author: Eni Translated by: Pál Capewell When we crossed the border from Kazakhstan, China literally hit us right in the face. Looking back, we saw nothing but a very bumpy road in the poorest condition and a Kazakh flatland. No city or village in sight. Over the border though, this all changed and we were heading forward gaping at what…

Author: Balázs Translated by: Andras Zsakai Kazakstan wasn’t a destination in our list of countries to visit, but it happened that we reached Kirgizstan’s Nordic neighbor. Reaching the border felt like an off-road racing, a trip of 35 km before the border and 15 km after the border on unpaved, shaky 1,5 lane road. The landscape was marvelous, rarely populated,…

Author: BalázsTranslated by: Gréta Kojsza Kyrgyzstan is often referred to as the Switzerland of Middle-Asia. The mountains must be the main reason of it, because we didn’t see any other similarity between the two countries. Kyrgyzstan is not organized or tidy at all, you hardly ever find a proper road and nobody likes tourists wondering around all by their selves.…
