Mongol Rally – Part 2: UK to Turkey

Part 2 of my Mongol Rally covers Team Raven Shoe’s escape from the United Kingdom, all the way through Europe to Turkey- the first 7 days of our journey.

Every day, I kept a short log of the major events which happened, hoping that along with my photos, I would be able to remember and piece together the many experiences we had…  Anyway, from now on, posts will be a ‘day-by-day’ account of our Rally.  Enjoy!

Post-grad Study in the UK

It’s been a quiet few months at my end, partly because I’ve started post-grad study in the UK.  I’m doing a one-year Master of Philosophy to experience industry in the UK/Europe, which currently has me either in class 9-5:30 or on projects around the country!

Anyway, with a few moments to spare on the weekends, I managed to sneak around my College to take a few photos.  I’ve also ordered myself a Canon EF-S 24mm STM pancake lens for my 100D which I’ll be road-testing on a trip to Hungary for New Year and of course, trying to catch up on my posts reporting on the Mongol Rally…  Enjoy!
