    British rally to Ulan Bator

    September 15, 2017 in Mongolia ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Never heard about it myself but there is a pretty famous rally from London to Ulan Bator with the only rule that you have to make it in the smallest car possible. Got that story told from our first Ger camp host.

    And how what's here? Just in front of our hostel a dirty small car with English number plate and fire wood and other things on the roof.

    Finding wild horses, Hustai nat. park

    September 13, 2017 in Mongolia ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Crazy tourists trying to find wild ancient horses which are apparently different from all the others which you can see and ride and touch and only existing in this national park.

    Probably the most fascinating thing was to drive all these wild dirt roads with a Toyota hybrid street car at 80km per hour.Read more

    Little nomad kids

    September 13, 2017 in Mongolia ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    One of the only things we could do at the camp: Play with the kids of the family. While the boy was younger and a bit more shy his older sister was super powerful, active and always running around.

    At the end I gave them both a block of chocolate which I brought originally as a snack for me, but they here in wild probably got less access to rather than me going back in a day to the city.

    Afternoon ride out

    September 12, 2017 in Mongolia ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    With a some other people staying at the nomad camp I am staying in. Corinna decided to stay at the camp since she had still enough pain in her legs from the last horse ride.

    I didn't want to loose the chance on my hand to ride once more in Mongolia and discover the winter shelter of the Normand family.Read more

    Arrival at our second Ger camp

    September 12, 2017 in Mongolia ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    For our second Ger camp experience we chose a camp which is run by real nomads which are actually still looking after their own horse, goat, sheep and cow stock.

    They are only hosting tourists for an extra income and the whole food, procedures and accommodation was much closer to the traditional life we were looking for than the last camp.Read more
