And when you’re finally ready…

… to defy your fear of flying and you actually start look forward to the whole trip, this happens…Yup, cancelled. Due to heavy snow fall in Ulaanbaatar. Apparently they only have one runway so… So my Mongolian dream and the search for snow continues. Maybe, for Ulaanbaatar at least, spring is a better option? ๐Ÿ˜‰ […]
