Room for the night


At UB, Chip and Ken had lined up a place to stay from the horizons unlimited website. The Oasis is a traveller friendly hostel, with everything you need (including WiFi!). I’ll stay for a couple of days as it looks like there’s a lot to see in UB.

Tonight we’re staying in a ger, which is actually very comfortable. It’s interesting to see how they’re constructed, very clever with inter-changeable parts. Stable but transportable, with a wood burning stove in the centre.

There’s about half a dozen other touring bikes here, so with any luck we’ll be able to find out which is the best for crossing Mongolia. The northern, central or southern route. Taking to the guys it sounds like they’re all doable, but the only way to know for sure is to pick one and go. Hmm.

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
