Chapter 11.1 – Second Before Heaven

Behind the Scenes: No, we’re not heading home again. We’re just about to drive the north-eastern route to India. A perfect chance to enjoy another powder day in Georgias Caucasus. But this video is not about riding. It’s about a special second, right before you let everything go. Not easy to capture it. Luckily there’s 60 fps and …

Chapter 10 – Dramatically Beautiful Armenia

Behind the Scenes: Armenias roads can make your journey quite difficult. Starting from a horrendously toll fee for asphalt roads that rarely exist, up to exorbitant fines when you override one of the (completely faded) solid lines. But guess what, Armenia: We still like you! And here’s why.

Chapter 9.3 – Welcome to Iran – Spirit of the Persian Gulf

Behind the Scenes: On Qeshm Island deep sand rock valleys are surrounded by the turquoise Persian Gulf, swampy mangrove forests and wild but peaceful animals, including desert foxes, camels and dolphins. Even more fascinating is the traditional female fashion: colourful patterned Chadors combined with shiny masks that originally were supposed …

Follow The White Mog(s)

To meet your doppelganger once in a lifetime is very unlikely. All the more surprising then, to meet the doppelganger of your self-constructed caravan. Nearly like identical twins they moved across the great salt desert Dasht-e Kavir, gracefully performing a mechanical ballet to the horizon.

Chapter 9.2 – Welcome to Iran – On and Off the Road

Behind the Scenes: Iran is a huge country with diverse landscapes and strong weather conditions. To get a summer breeze we travelled towards the south. Local friends told us that the region hasn’t seen a drop of rain in years. We tried our luck and it started to snow: Iran …

Chapter 9.1 – Welcome to Iran – Magic Made by Hand

Behind the Scenes: „Welcome to Iran“ is one of the most common phrases in the Iranian culture which probably is the friendliest on earth. It really matters to the people that you feel happy and well looked after. That is why every video of this series simply begins with these …

Iranian Shepherd Song – Qeshm Island

Behind the Scenes: On our journey from Germany to India we explored the Islands of Iran. On Qeshm Island, in the middle of a lonely road, we met a shepherd who invited us to sit in the shade of his tree for a while. Since we couldn’t speak each others …

Chapter 8 – Meditation in Azerbaijan

Behind the Scenes: We crossed the countryside of Azerbaijan to find out what’s apart from its glamorous capital Baku. Well, there is space. A lot. After locating a beachside that wasn’t surrounded by oil rigs, we got to know some fishermen who soon made friends and enjoyed telling us their jokes in Azeri Turkish which we of course couldn’t understand. After a tough day in the sea they shared one …

Chapter 7 – Drifting in Gudauri, Georgia

Behind the Scenes: The great Caucasus is not only the cats dream. On our journey to India we came across Gudauri, a former sowjet ski resort, which we right away sank deep into. In the end we’ve spent a month drifting through this stunning powdery snow. However, to get a timelapse video of Caucasus‘ clouds is not as easygoing as it looks: You have to bear three hours of icy wind until you …

„Snowboard Varenyky“ In Georgia

Behind the Scenes: In Georgias ski resort Gudauri Snowboarders from all over the world come together, mostly from Poland, Ukraine, Belarus, Sibiria and recently Germany. Since we didn’t know what „Vareniky“ was, we started preparing it all together. One thing led to another, till midnight several Snowboards were covered with „Varenyky“: delicious slavic dumplings widespread in the area of the …

Chapter 6 – Tamam Turkey!

Behind the Scenes: When we travelled through Turkey we didn’t expect many off-road adventures. Steering our 4-wheel-truck to that hidden beach was surprisingly challenging. The narrow path started to crumble, the rain had washed away some parts. We weren’t even sure if this was the right direction. After arriving savely you really feel like a hero – until you see two locals happily speeding …

Quick Outdoor Recipe

Behind the Scenes: This special outdoor Thai dish was prepared at the coast of Turkey. This might sound confusing now, but to that point it made totally sense. On our journey to India we met friendly 4-wheel travellers heading to Thailand. Once the camp was set we created a tasty meal with fresh ingredients each vehicle carried on board: chicken, onions, …

Chapter 5 – Bulgarias Golden Leaves

Behind the Scenes: Every morning these wild horses were running around the lake, stumbling upon any barrier they could find. But whenever we pointed a camera at them they completely freezed, sometimes for half an hour. Nothing could convince them to move, not even a carrot. Bulgaria’s sheep were way more telegenic, possibly assuming cameras contain corn.
