The problem with Mongolia is the scenery. It’s just stunning, which is a problem. Get up and walk to your bike and you’re thinking “WOW – Take a picture!”.
Ride for half a mile and you’re thinking ” WOW – Take a picture! “. Come round a bend and you see the most amazing post card scene, so you’re thinking ” WOW – Take a picture! “.
And so on. It’s the same every time I come over a hill, the next scene gets even better, so I’m thinking ” WOW – Take a picture! “.
The sense of space is phenomenal. Thousands upon thousands of square miles of open steppe, nothing to break the view save the odd ger. Mountains rising in the distance.
