Stalin removed from his position!

I got interesting news from Szabolcs while in Georgia: Stalin`s monumental statue has been removed. I though it was a joke as I`ve been there 2 days before and it was there. But later on I`ve read the news elsewhere too… Funny how they completed the operation, it was all secret, overnight,  as they didn`t […]

Bouncing between Georgia and Armenia

This is my sixth time in Georgia but the first time I arrived here without a car. My flight arived to Tbilisi at a convenient 3:20 AM so I was pretty tired by the time I left the terminal. Surprisingly, the man with the car was not waiting for me as agreed before, but after […]

“Serbia’s Jerusalem”

This is how Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic phrased their situation implying on Kosovo’s status for Serbian people. “Kosovo has a deep historical and spiritual meaning for the Serbian people, it is, in a way, our Jerusalem. We cannot accept unilateral conclusions by those governing in Pristina,” he said. Well, this is a good example […]

Arrived to Turkey

I had to wait another day for the part as our Pajero had a stronger spring and a longer shock absorber than the standard so they didn’t have it on stock, but they get it by next morning. And the part was half price than back in Hungary, I wonder why… Anyhow, since I had […]

From the Albanian mountains to the Greek beaches

Kalispera! (meaning “good evening” I guess) I finished the blog in Peja. I wanted to wake up early and finish at least the half of the next rally stage and get somewhere around Peshkopi. When I was in Albania for the first time I was a bit worried… the image of the country is not […]

Kosovo and Albania – two countries, one nation

Tungjatjeta! (Meaning “Hello” in Albanian, but the pronunciation… huh, we always struggle with this language…) This day was shorter than yesterday but it was equally interesting. We agreed on all the details with the owner of the hotel in Ivanjica, also tested the restaurant which turned out to be excellent. I travel with 2 chefs […]

Scouting for Caucasian Challenge 2010 started on Monday

Just like in the previous years, we do a scouting trip before the actual event this year too. You never know what changes when and how in this region, hotels close, better ones open, border posts close or even roads disappear from the map. All these happened in the past. We wanted to cross the […]

ZÁRSZÓ

Kemény volt… A szervezők számára már az első napokban kiderült, hogy remek kis csapat jött össze és nem fogunk unatkozni a 17 nap alatt. Nem csalódtunk. Őszintén szólva a tavalyi futam is remekül sikerült, de az idei rali (köszönhetően nektek) talán még erősebb nyomot hagyott az általunk meglátogatott helyeken, a helyiekben és – bizunk benne […]

17. nap – az utolsó kihívások, és: JEREVÁN! / Day 17 – tha last challenges and… YEREVAN!

Eljött hát ez a nap is – befutott a II. Kaukázus Rali mezőnye Yerevan-ba! Magáról a mai szakaszról sok mindent nem lehet elmondani. Komoly kihívás már nem várt a résztvevőkre. Persze volt aki talált magának, a G’Roby csapat megkeresett egy számunkra ismeretlen utat a hegyeken át a Tatev monostorig, lelkes elbeszélésük alapján lehet hogy a […]
