Mongolia

 These next few posts are sorely overdue. My apologies.

 Rock formations, Mongolia

Mongolia had been a dream adventure of mine for many years (and still is). Finally this past summer, I got to experience the glory of the Gobi Desert. Having only ten days total and eight days for my adventure, I had to make the tough decision of choosing where to go. I found Golden Gobi Tours and Hostel online and made arrangements with them.

Eight days riding around with a group of strangers in a magnificent Russian-made machine that I’m not sure could ever be stopped.

Sigh. Eight days was not enough. Nor is one single post to show off my favourite photos, so there’s more to come.

Merry Christmas everyone!

    Nice post. In October, we, too, did an 8-day loop from Ulaanbaatar to the Gobi and back. The landscapes, people, wildlife… all of it were incredible.

      That’s wonderful. Looking through all my photos and remembering everything about my trip is torture. I want very badly to go back… especially to the western part of the country.
