Episode 11: Fairytale Mongolia

Published by Mihai on 16 - Jul - 2018

In this episode we discover the Mongolia I had imagined so many times before. Well, mostly as I had imagined it because I didn't know about the dust and the washboard. It has everything: lots of offroad, wild horses, camping at a billion stars hotel.
