If you're seeking something uplifting and enchanting, I highly recommend Berkeley Playhouse's production of "The Wizard of Oz." After seeing it, you may find yourself skipping out of the theatre! . . . . #Berkelyplayhouse #flashesofdelight #performingarts #musicals #Thewizardofoz #curiosityandmirthguide #mysf #mysanfrancisco #sf #mytinyatlas #alwayssf #nowrongwaysf #sanfrancisco #thesanfrancisco #bayareatheatre #lifewelltraveled #sfgate #huffposttravel #natgeotravel #cnntravel #guardiantravel #travelchannel #usatodaytravel #travelandleisure #livetravelchannel

Got any questions about visiting Mongolia and Overlanding? If yes, before I jump into Mongolia's rich history, why don't you leave your questions below in the comments and I'll answer most relevant ones in the next post? Image: Kickin' up a storm in the Steppe! Bad puns aside, our modified truck was called Xara and isn't she a thing of beauty? 😍

Beautiful Vienna 💫 As some of you might remember, last week Laura and I set off on a trip with a difference. Unlike our usual adventures @viennatouristboard had set us a (weirdly thrilling) task: to explore the city without the use of social media. Encouraging us to ‘see Vienna not # Vienna’ this meant no Instagram stories, posting of photos whilst we were there or aimless scrolling of FB as we ate our Apfelstrudels. Arriving at our hotel @25hourshotels the first surprise was our room for the next two nights. Known as the ‘analogue room’ we opened our door to a 1990s paradise (also known as my childhood). Replacing cable TV, our room offered a tiny TV, complete with VCR (I pray no one reading this is too young to understand what that is) and videos, a record player, type writer and circa 1989 exercise bike on the balcony. Despite the fact we grew up in the 90s, the room felt hilariously novel, as we stuck a video in the VCR and hit fast forward. 📼 Amongst our analogue belongings sat our new LOMO instant camera that we’d been tasked with using for the following three days. The LOMO was to replace our phones, encouraging us to capture moments that couldn’t be replaced. Armed with just our instant camera and Laura’s DSLR, our phones were left in our hotel room as we took to the streets of Vienna. 🇦🇹 We’ll be writing a full blog post on how we found travelling without social media, plus sharing two more of our favourite shots of the city. What do you think? Is social media changing the way we enjoy a new city? We’d love to know your thoughts before we share our own 🙂

As we reached the summit of the winding dirt path, we reached this home tucked away in the wilderness.

🇿🇼 We arrived in Vic Falls and first stop was a sunset cruise down the beautiful Zambezi River. We saw hippo, elephant and crocodile from the boat!! . . Welcome to the drive Mic & Jarrad and thanks for taking us out Ty! It’s Jarrad’s first trip to Africa and so it was very entertaining to see an Aussie lose his mind on his first game experience, especially when we got very close to a crocodile whilst we were launching the boat 😳. Africa isn’t for sissies haha. . . . . DONATE by following link through website in bio. All donations go directly to the Cancer Society’s Research Centre.

🇿🇼 Who remembers Mic? She was the very lovely musician that played at the Auckland Charity Gig before I left Auckland. Well guess what she’s here, with her amazing partner Jarrad in tow!!!! . . These honourable nutters flew into Cape Town, bought a VW Golf and a few days later hit the road to meet up with us. They will be convoying all the way down to Cape Town and also have a donation page to raise funds as well. Absolute legends! Everyone can I get a round of applause for Mic, Jay and Louie, Charlie’s new mate 🚙🚙 . . . . DONATE by following link through website in bio.

🇿🇼 Well as per usual it was also hard to leave Bulawayo! I had an amazing welcoming party who met me on the road on the drive in with biltong and banter. Charlie and I both got spoilt rotten again with the best service from another legend, a jolt around the most beautiful national park and another home away from home to leave. To all involved thank you so so much!! . . The shear amount of people that got in contact in Zim has been so overwhelming, I’ve had option after option everywhere and even multiple options to chose from, it’s actually been hard to keep up so if I never got to meet you I’m very sorry and equally thankful to you for reaching out. Once I get settled my house is going to be an open home ❤️ . . . . . DONATE by following link through website in bio. All donations go directly to the Cancer Society’s Research Centre.

Wellington Botanic Gardens were a real oasis in the heart of the city. Hiding out under tree ferns and sitting by waterfalls was the perfect way to spend our first afternoon here!

So how does one go about planning a trip to Mongolia? First things first, Mongolia is a huge country. Second, the ease of travel is, let's say, on the lower spectrum. Most common itineraries include the Gorkhi-Terelij National Park nearby, Gobi Desert, Old Karakorum city tours, Orkhon Valley and some horseback tours in the nearby countryside– all excursions close to the capital Ulanbaataar. The more ambitious travellers head straight to the west for the Golden Eagle hunters or hiking in the gorgeous Altai Mountains. Now as a solo traveller, travelling in Mongolia is downright brutal. To go anywhere, since public transportation is non existent and as is a reliable road network, one will need to hire a 4x4 vehicle and a guide, which easily adds up to hundreds of dollars for even a small 3-4 day trip. What most people do is hang out in hostels and join fellow travellers to form groups, hire vehicles and head out on one of the popular excursions ex-Ulanbaataar. But this means your options are severely limited if you want to go somewhere not on the usual tourist circuit. So even though Mongolia was the first country I was visiting, that too all by myself in a country where solo travel is neither affordable nor practical, I was hellbent on not doing the usual sightseeing. I wanted to go offbeat, travel far and wide. That's how I came to zero in on Overlanding as the most suitable option that met my needs. Over three weeks, we covered vast parts of central and northern Mongolia, otherwise literally not possible on my own for the amount of money I paid (about 3000USD), and ended up seeing a wide variety of landscapes and places across the country. The only disadvantage of Overlanding was that it became really hard to have authentic local interactions as travelling in a huge group of travellers isn't the ideal icebreaker if you want to make genuine local connections. But we lose some and gain some. In this case, the pros far outweighed the cons.

Ulanbaataaar - The world's most polluted capital city. Just as Mongolia has transfixed me for ages, so did Ulanbaataaar– not the city, not its culture, not its sights. Just the name. When I finally did get to visit in the Mongolian summer of 2014, I found the city was as bizarre as its name. Its soaring soviet style buildings, the vast Sukhbataar square with a looming statue of Damdin Sükhbaatar, surprisingly stylish folks and vibrant nightlife, fascinating museums that hold a wealth of information and artefacts from this ancient nomadic country's past– the curious mix of modern and ancient culture and the striking contrast with the rest of the countryside was all intriguing. But as with any city, I just had to scratch the surface to see this bizarre sounding city was bogged down with problems. Up on the hill at Zaisan Memorial, a huge communist-era propaganda memorial that celebrates USSR and Mongolian friendship during WWII, I could see the sprawling city forked by Tuul river below. Surrounded by mountains on all sides, Ulanbaataar is cloistered in a valley, which strategically must've been a great location but the natural fencing enables the worst pollution crisis every winter. It is the world's most polluted capital city. Much like our Delhi, the pollution is exacerbated every winter when thousands of citizens living in Ger district(an informal, sprawling suburb where the nomads have shifted from the Steppes to the city with their ger tents) burn wood to keep warm. The smog from the fire finds no escape and sits in the valley through the winter, accumulating day after day bringing in a thick haze. Today, it is estimated that the capital is home to 45% of the country's population. There's no end to this pollution at the moment even as thousands trickle into the capital from the countryside due to nomadic life not being sustainable anymore. When I visited Ulanbaataar in 2014, smog in Delhi wasn't that bad but it didn't take long before our capital was also stuck in the same dystopian nightmare. Strange how travel often times shows us a glimpse into the future. From that hilltop on that warm summer evening though, Ulanbaataar looked as pretty!
