Spreading joy and smile in Mongolia

Our dream?
Mongolia has been our dream for many years already. We wanted to be on a journey that will be meaningful, both, for us and for the people  we are going to meet. 

So we came up with an idea to share our experience of working with kids and adults. 
We are planning to organize fun activities for children, but also to engage their parents. 
It's about spending timeTOGETHER. Learning from each other while working, playing, talking or just.. being :)

We know that kids love face painting, running, gymnastics, art and crafts and... watching adults making fun of themselves :) 
That's why we are going to bring all of this to the Mongolian yurts and beautiful Mongolian steppes!!!
We also want to leave some printed memories for the families so we bring pocket printer to give them pictures of the memorable moments.



Who we are?
We are three friends - Iza, Renia and Asia - and the dog - Asha :) from Poland but currently living in Norway for more than 7 years.
We've met 13 years ago in Krakow and since then we continue our friendship and share common dreams. 

When we want to go?
We are planning to drive to Poland beginning of June 2018, prepare the car and leave Poland around 20th June 2018. 
The journey will take approx. 1,5 to 2 months.

How we want to do it?
We have this crazy idea for many years to make a road trip to Mongolia.
Our starting point will be south of Poland. Then we're going to drive through Ukraine - Russia and to Mongolia. 
Estimated drive will take up to 6 days :)
We take as much and as little as we need. Our little dog on our laps, backpacks full of laughter and a lot of positive energy to make our dream come true! :D 
Our last name is ADVENTURE! OH YEAH!

What we get from this journey?
Apart of the experience of a lifetime!!! our dream is to bring a bit of Mongolian tradition and to built a Mongolian yurt here in Norway. A place for gatherings for women, men and children. For workshops or just for spending time together. 
A place to be closer to the nature and learn how to live simple life and enjoy it to the fullest. 

Some time ago we have started with gatherings for women and we would love to spread it and invite more people.
So hopefully we will get to know people that wants to share their stories, experience and knowledge with us... and we can bring it with us to Europe :)

What we need to make it happen?
No worries about the food, because our mums will take care of it. 
Our dads will make sure that the car we are driving is safe and ready to hit the road! 
The roof over our head is not a problem as we are vagabonds and feel in tents like home :)

There are things we are not able to cover for now.

The whole budget (around 12000$)
- preparation of the car (special equipment, spare wheels etc.) and accomodation during whole trip - 50000 NOK - 6400$
- smartphone printer + paper - 3000 NOK - 400$
- arts and crafts, projector for small shows, gifts f.ex paints, pencils, crayons - 15000 NOK - 1900$
- fuel ~ 11000 NOK - 1400$
-  visas - 4000 NOK - 500$
Rest of the money will most likely cover the cost of the campaign. 
All money left from the trip + money for selling the car will be send to help children and women in Mongolia.

We are very open for any help. If you have any of these equipments and feel you don't need them any more we are more than happy to receive it and bring them to life again in our daily life we prefer to use used things than to buy a new ones. 

Iza, Renia, Asia and Asha in details:

Iza :)
Iza is the funniest woman we've ever known. She brings the sunshine to the room whenever clouds are coming. Working as a therapist and a preschool teacher, she still finds time to travel the world and share the best of her with people she meets. Loves capoeira, dance, and just to enjoy what life brings every day. Plus she always have some snacks with her so friends aren't hungry ;) 

Renia :)She sais: go beyond your mind to reach what you realy love. She is the source of positive thoughts :) showing her passion for nature and animals through her photographs.  
Irreplaceable sense of humor and very straightforward personality is what  we love in her the most ;)
She's a photographer and massage therapist exploring ways to help body, mind and soul to work together :)
Passion about Mongolian culture and shamanism gives her strength to drive around 15000km without any doubts :)

Asia :)Asia is the real gem for the humanity :) She doesn't take herself to serious, has an unstoppable sens of humor and brilliant ideas that brings joy wherever she goes. Passionate about people, nature and animals. Recently found her passion in beekeeping. She's a hurdles coach and a preschool teacher.

Asha :)Asha is a gift from a friend and life :) she travels with us whenever possible, always showing us how to be "here and now". Loves to cuddle and sleep on a couch.. her best quality? melting everyone's hearts no matter what. She has a driver's soul, enjoying even the longest journeys.


We are sooooo excited about this journey that even writing about it makes goosebumps on our bodies. We already feel that it started and can't wait to finally hit the road.

Thank you for any kind of support and good vibes you show us.
