Onto the Steppe

MONGOLIA | Thu, 11 Sep 2014 | By daveonhols | Views [478]

Crossing the border to Mongolia was a hum drum affair, enlivened only marginally by the changing of the train's wheels for the wider Mongolian tracks.  A young, cheerful Chinese lady collected our passports, a few people bought cheap booze, and ... Read more >

Mongolian bumps and kindness

MONGOLIA | Sat, 12 Jul 2014 | By kek_crazy92 | Views [494]

After a day spent eating most of Ulaanbaatar, we headed to the bus station to buy tickets and the worlds greatest matching hot pink bedazzled caps. They shine like disco balls in the sunlight, and tell the world that "black, you want your coffee, 65, ... Read more >

Mongolia by bus

MONGOLIA | Sat, 12 Jul 2014 | By piratepete | Views [478]

We took a bus from Ulaanbaatar to Moron- a town presumably named after the people who catch the bus there. The bus reportedly takes between 15 and 30 hours, that's Mongolian consistency for you. We arrived at 1pm to buy tickets, only to be told the 2pm ... Read more >

I bit into my apple. Savouring this single piece of Mongolia that would be mine, in the end. Tears streamed down my face as my despair gave vent to a poem entitled ‘One Apple in Mongolia’. I had been sitting on the same kitchen chair for ... Read more >

My Scholarship entry - Seeing the world through other eyes

WORLDWIDE | Sat, 17 Mar 2012 | By foot21583 | Views [567] | Scholarship Entry

Travelling through the South Gobi in Mongolia, ironically I saw that in a way, the nomadic rural lifestyle helps breed more “neighbourliness” and social bonding than in a cramped city. Utilizing camels instead of jeeps, we had to stay overnight ... Read more >

Photos: My Photo scholarship 2011 entry

WORLDWIDE | Tue, 8 Nov 2011 | By hannahrose | Photo Gallery | Scholarship Entry

The soft thud of hooves thundering upon the earth. Mongolia, with its vast and lonely landscapes, syrup eyed people and proud, wild maned steeds. As one of the world's last nomadic cultures, this place has always quietly called to me. The deep connection ... Read more >

Photography: contemplating Mongolian men

NETHERLANDS | Mon, 4 Apr 2011 | By picslyrics | Views [644]

Picture this: I get off my horse’s back and plant my feet in lush green grass. My back is aching from the short, yet pretty rough horseback ride. A ride that is the opposite from the ones back home. This might be due to the different saddle, but my ... Read more >

My Travel Writing Scholarship 2011 entry (My Big Adventure)

MONGOLIA | Sat, 5 Feb 2011 | By tomczaban | Views [1367] | Scholarship Entry

The roads in Ulan Bator were choked with traffic. The streets were flecked with women flogging boiled sweets. Children with smudged faces dodged legs and begged for cash. Power-cuts were frequent and unacknowledged. Men loitered in the darkness, burgling shoppers ... Read more >
