Looking for Excitement This Summer?

7 Comments 17 July 2012

I looked out the window of my Turkish bus and my stomach seized up in knots. My eyes focused in on the field of yellow sunflowers and I was immediately reminded of how I spent my last summer – driving through endless fields of sunflowers through Central Asia on my way to Mongolia. My mind [...]

Traveling with Strangers

18 Comments 25 October 2011

Before I departed on the Mongol Rally, when I told people about what I was doing this summer they were surprised, but consistently it was one topic about the epic road trip that fascinated people most. It wasn’t the inappropriate car or the length of the trip. It wasn’t the fact that my team had [...]

Stay Connected – Travel with a Kindle

15 Comments 18 October 2011

I found a new piece of travel gear this summer which I’ll never leave home without any longer. As I raced through the Mongol Rally, my new Amazon Kindle was probably my most used travel gear after my camera. I used it constantly, yet I never finished a book during the whole 5 weeks of [...]

The Finish Line – Mongol Rally

16 Comments 27 September 2011

It’s hard to put into words what those last 20km were like as we drove into Ulaanbaatar. All I can say is that is wasn’t easy. It was actually some of the worst roads and construction we had experienced. There was no real time to relax and soak up the moment, as we had to [...]

Ulaanbaatar in our Sights

4 Comments 26 September 2011

I woke up giddy, excited, anxious, and a bit sad. This was it – our last day of the Mongol Rally. It started exactly 5 weeks earlier on a Saturday in London. Now here we were 300 km from Ulaanbaatar Mongolia’s finish line. The day started like any other; local visitors bringing gifts of food [...]

Mongolian Cloudscapes – Photography

15 Comments 23 September 2011

I believe that there is something very special about the Mongolian skies. Out of all of the countries I’ve been to, the skies in Mongolia are the most memorable. They are vast. They are the most perfect color blue. Even when they get angry and dark, they are perfection. They make me feel small. And [...]
