Today I’ve had the pleasure of writing a guest post for my old school friend, blogging buddy and fellow TCK serial expat Clara on her wonderful blog The Expat Partner’s Survival Guide.

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!  Voting is open until 12 April.
