Finally some photos!
We are currently finishing up our 3.5 weeks travelling through Mongolia. Unlike our previous trips, access to WiFi is limited to the capital city, Ulaanbaatar. And Mongolia is really a country where you need to get out of the big city to experience what it has to offer.
Here is a sneak peak of our travel through the Gobi and Central Mongolia. We covered over 2200kms during 9 days in a Russian 4×4 van – amazing landscapes and people, bumpy, dirt roads, constant engine fumes all set to a soundtrack of Mongolian folk songs and our guide’s selection of trance/progressive house music. Oh, and there was one shower. Yes. One shower. No internet. But plenty of vodka! And perhaps some karaoke.
Tomorrow morning, we will head to Beijing via the Trans-Mongolian railway – a 30 hour journey. Provided we can find some Wifi in China (although no facebook! yeah google+!), you can look forward to sneak peaks from Ulaanbaatar, Terelj, and Northern Mongolia travels.
