Why Mongolia?

Welcome and Thanks for Reading!



Hello friends and readers! Welcome to my blog!

I’ve created this site to document and share my experiences on my upcoming trip through a few countries in Asia (as well as any future forays).

My goal for this site is to share experiences, adventures, and whatever mishaps along the way that one may not typically get sitting in a tour bus or staying in a hotel on a commercial tour.

I’m getting a late start with wordpress (in more ways than one) so hopefully the blog/site will improve in aesthetics and content as we proceed.

The trip is only 2 months long. I’ll be trading work for accommodation in most places which I’m sure will help me experience the local lifestyle.I’m a little more than a week away from departure and my first stop will be Ulan Bator, Mongolia. I’ll elaborate on the “why and what” in a future post.

I’m in my last week of preparation and am packing minimally. My backpack arrives tomorrow. I guess I’ll be loading it up then.
