Hiking; Bogd Kahn Mountain

Cultural day; Tumen Ekh

This morning I woke up around 09:30. I’m in the luxurious position to have the house to myself today! Even though it’s great to have my own place, it was a little bit frightening last night as well.. what if someone would enter or anything?! I knew it wasn’t going to happen, but still made […]

Road Trippin’ part I

Today the great Mongolian adventure begins! We get up around 09:00 and make our way to the Zaya guesthouse where we meet Peter and Felix who are joining us on our trip. The plan is to rent a car plus driver and go on our own tour instead of an organized tour. This saves a […]

Welcome to Mongolia!

Welcome to Mongolia! After a broken night with a little sleep (just like yesterday, when sleep finally kicks in you need to wake up again) the light switch on and a speaker voice tells us were about to descend. I look outside the window and it’s super dark outside! The only thing I see is […]
