In Pictures: Remembering Mongolia

A year has passed in a moment. Last November my journey on the Trans-Siberian took me from Beijing to Moscow, through wide-angled countryside, distinct cultures and histories. A particular highlight was the few days I spent in Mongolia.


When I daydream about this country, three things remain in the forefront of my mind: The massive, snow-dusted landscapes, the sharp contrast of heated Gers against freezing night air and the vivid blue of the skies.

As the first anniversary of my trip looms, Mongolia is still very much alive in my mind’s eye, but it won’t always be that way. In years to come the memories will become faded and blurred, the names of places and faces all but forgotten. Then, I’ll rely on my photos to fuel my reveries…

  1. Awesome photos and good to see that you’ll always have these memories of Mongolia. Btw, how was that ride on the Trans-siberian? I’ve been really curious to hear from all who’ve ridden on it. Was it comfy? Anyway, great blog you’ve got here. Following you from now on! Cheers!

    • Thanks for your kind words Duke! I would definitely recommend the Trans-Siberian. I used it as a way of getting back to the UK from Australia (and amazingly it was only $200-300 more expensive than a one-way flight with Quantas!)

      I travelled with a group from Beijing to Moscow and had my accommodation pre-paid which really took the hassle out of it (Russian visas are near impossible to get if you haven’t got a stamped letter from your hotels) We travelled 2nd class most of the way which was a small room with bunks on either side and a little table under the window. I found it really comfortable and didn’t get bored at all, although some fellow travellers were climbing the walls by the end of the 4 day stint!

      Thanks for following my blog 🙂

    • Thank you! I loved being there while there was a dusting of snow on everything (as that’s how I saw the Trans-Siberian in my mind’s eye) However I would definitely go back in the summer time as they hold the annual Nadaam Festival in July.

      Either way, it’s a stunning country and all the people I met were extremely friendly 🙂
