Tommo Fun, Video Blogs

As one of the least densely populated countries in the world, Mongolia can be quite a culture shock for travellers who have been accustomed to things like beds and hot water for most of their lives. Epic wilderness, untamed beauty and challenging travel experiences are par for the course when going trans-Mongolian. Mongolia offers a real sense of freedom from civilisation but navigating the country independently can be both dangerous, …

How it Began One of …

How NOT to Cross central Mongolia overland – Moron to Olgii.

Tommo Fun

20 hours broken down and stuck in the Gobi Desert was not on our itinerary… and yet our dilapidated mini-van felt that it should be. Actually our van – I named it “Turquoise Disaster” – had quite a few opinions about travel that were contrary to our own. Its propensity to fill the cabin with petrol fumes. Its willingness to open its own windows, allowing sand and dust to engulf …
