After nearly three weeks on the road, countless days on the train and constantly changing location, I was beyond happy that my final train journey came to an end. Don’t get me wrong, experiencing the Transiberian railway was an unforgettable experience but it’s not the easiest of trips. I’ll admit that I was tired of moving every 2-3 days, so when our train arrived in Beijing and I stepped on the platform for the last time, it felt good.
Okay, okay, it’s here! This is what you’ve all been waiting for; photos and stories from Mongolia! And they won’t disappoint. Out of Russia, Mongolia and China, this country is the one I get asked about the most and understandably so. It is majorly different from anything else we Westerners know and has the most interesting nomad lifestyle.
Taking the train is a standard commuting platform in Russia and it offered a glimpse into the lives and minds of ordinary people, something I love finding when travelling. After a week in the country I boarded the Transiberian to head from Moscow to Irkutsk and what follows are some moments my lens capture. This is part two of a blog series I’ve started on photographs from the Transiberian trip.
