mongolian man and horse

Sometimes when travelling, there are those moments when nothing can be verbally communicated with another person, yet somehow you know exactly what the other person is saying! This happened to us for practically 4 months during our recent trip through Mongolia, Central Asia and Iran.

We did an eight-day trek through the vibrant green Mongolian steppe. Each night when we would set up our tent and prepare dinner, local men on their horse or on their motorbike would come over to us. We couldn’t speak the same language and the majority of the time the men would just sit there silent, while staring at us. They were so fascinated by us, our green tent and Nick’s fishing rod! Truly amazing moments in travel.
