The Trans Mongolian route continues: After a couple of days in Ulan Bator, time to add some train-miles.
After I visit Mongolia in the countryside, I had a couple of days in the capital again to regroup and get ready for the next part of my Trans European and Trans Asian adventure.
Cutting short my trip in the Mongolia Countryside wasn’t an easy decision.
Today I visit Karakorum, more breathtaking views of Mongolia and have a rising concern about the pile of plastic in the countryside. Another day discovering central Asia.
A day with lots more driving, and seeing the Przewalski horses in Khustain Nuruu National park.
Ulaanbaatar had been my home for two days, before it was time to start the discovery of Genghis Khan’s country
Ulan Bator or Ulaanbaatar is the next stop on the Trans-Mongolian train. The trip during the night went from the Mongolian border to the capital of Mongolia. I stay a couple of days in the city before taking some time to discover the inland.
After two weeks traveling through Russia, now taking the Trans Mongolian Railway. A Russian-Mongolian border control and the switch of a restaurant car it will take to get me there
The history of the Trans Siberian Railway goes back to the end of the 19th century. Tsar Alexander III began construction of the railway we still use today.
Koens new journey is about to start. This time it’s all about exploring Europe and Asia. Wherever possible, I’ll be trying to travel by train or ferry. A slower way of traveling should bring a nice pace to collect some impressions and meet some people.
