I’m not really sure why we stopped here in the middle of the steppes of Mongolia. Our driver, Jack, was pretty good at not smoking in the van so we thought we were just pulling off the track for a short smoke break. But the break became longer and longer as Jack and the driver from the second van discussed the news of the day (I guess). It was a pretty rare occurence, crossing paths with another van, so I figured that must have been how they found about traffic(?), weather, road (?) closures, who knows? We never did find out, Jack just climbed back in and away we went across the grass.
Luckily, we weren’t in charge of finding our way that day! But, I do so love getting off the beaten path and maybe a little lost. It’s where you find the best experiences!
