What was it:

Social Media Syndicate Mongol Rally

The Mongol Rally is an unsupported road rally from London, England to Ulaan Baatar, Mongolia. In July, 2011 four well-traveled, and some may say crazy travel bloggers set out on a 10,000 mile journey to Mongolia.   This was no fluff press trip…this was us against the open road, in a car that was not meant to be driven to these lengths.

Crossing 10,000 miles over unforgiving deserts, perilous mountain ranges and non-existent roads, we will faced the possibility of bandits, breakdowns and corruption while navigating our way through 13 countries and 2 continents. Oh yes, and not a one of us had any mechanical knowledge.
