Peking, Beijing, at last. My first days in the city. Love on the first sight. Who would have thought that?
Arrival in Beijing, China! After thousands of kilometers on the train, crossing many borders since London, I made it to the first big stop on my Trans Europe and Asia journey.
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 inlands.
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
