Clara runs an occasional series about memorable journeys which she describes here. “Getting from A to B in this world isn’t always straightforward. With so many people trying to get to so many different places, and so many events – natural or otherwise – to affect those journeys, it’s not surprising that our carefully laid plans so often go awry. Add to that the unpredictability of mankind and you have a few interesting tales to tell.”
Reading the other stories in Memorable Journeys got me reminiscing about some of the wilder trips I’ve taken and I decided to share one particularly unique experience with her and you. I delved into the depths of my memories to describe a flight I took from Ulaan-Baatar to Khovd in 1994. Mongolia was a wild frontier of a place back then. This journey involved elbow scrums, an unscheduled landing, a wrecked plane fusillage, cross-country driving (in a plane), half a seat belt, no toilets and more….
Please head over to Clara’s blog to read all about my crazy journey (you have to scroll down to #4 in the series) and say I sent you!
While you’re here though would you consider taking a moment to vote for me in the Travel section of the Brilliance in Blogging Awards. I’ve never entered a competition like this before and don’t in all honesty stand a hope in hell of getting through, but it doesn’t hurt to dream, does it? A few extra votes would make my day!
