Slowly starting to get serious on the preparation for this awesome adventure. Oliver is still lost somewhere in Patagonia ;) but I'm already See More

EVENT DATE Jul 16, 2017

THE STORY:

Hi ! My name is Amanda and I am doing the Mongol Rally this summer 2017 with two friends, Oliver and Will, that I met in Nepal on the Annapurna circuit trail. Why ? Because we are a bit crazy and since we are approaching our 30s, we needed to do something before arriving at that dreadful age (joking around, ain't that terrible !) And admittingly, the concept behind the Mongol Rally got us hooked.


For such a big adventure, we need a lot of preparation, including reusing an old car (1.2L maximum), putting it back to shape and making it safe to travel with it. Then they are all the VISAs we need to apply for and the bribes (yes, you read right) that we need to bring because it is highly corrupt on many borders (I won't say which countries, but you can guess). 


In the midst of all the preparation that needs to be done, the most important one is to fundraise money for an organisation of our choice. We chose CARE for Nepal and Cool Earth. After the earthquake, which was already a terrible event, Nepal is struggling even more because of an unjust and harmful blockade imposed by India. By doing this, we hope to raise awareness on what's happening to Nepal.


I have started with a 2000$ fundraise for the charity.
