What a day! Start of the Allgäu-Orient-Rallye 2017, ready, steady,…sloooow. Took about 4 hours to get all teams to take off. Once on the road, full speed.
First challenge: get the roadbook! Check!
Navigating off the highways, eye to eye with bavarian cows. Green pastures, rolling hills German Regen. Headed towards the first border. Auf Wiedersehen, Deutschland, servus, Austria. But the first day is about making kilometres. So Hungary here we come. 2 a.m. Finally. Entering Magyar country. Sopran city, Industry meets Barock. Over and out for today!
All teams have the same destination, but many ways lead to Istanbul. Check the Marauder’s map / gps live tracking. More pictures from the start here.
Stay tuned, stay foolish!
