Mongolia 2012/08

What’s in Mongolia? Why would you go to Mongolia? Actually, where is Mongolia? Those are couple of questions I heard before this journey. Most of my mates thought I was crazy, or that I was kind of weird. Nobody thought going on your own to cycle across Mongolia was something you could call “holidays”. Nobody but me, of course.

(Yep, I know, that one sounds like Arnie… That’s me!)

Mongolia is a huge, relatively unexplored, virgin, great country. It’s also one of those cyclists’ paradise. The air is pure and rivers are clean and the sky is blue. But it might no be the bestest place ever for holidays. I’ll give you my opinion and details of my trip, hope it’s useful for you!

Because, above it all, it’s a country where you MUST go cycling!mongolia
