TWO announcements! One is this BLISTERING HOT new blog post about the wacky people who picked me up hitchhiking--I had to get out of the car to escape these people below--to the last place in Russia, Vladivostok, and the other is I am going to #kyrgyzstan  for the World Nomad Games next week and then #kazakhstan . #vladivostok   #russia   #blogpost   #travelblogger   #blog   #travelblog   #travel   #hitchhiking   #hitchhiker   #hitchhike  
Trains, planes and automobiles were making me crazy, so I went with Ol' Reliable: hitchhiking, which is ALWAYS good for some stories.

BLAZING HOT new blog post about crossing Siberia, which is no big deal at all, but try telling Young Kent Foster that!
Hey Russia, do you think for once, just for once, you can look at my passport, stamp it, and let me in? Does it really have to be an event? No, it doesn't.

NEW blog post in words and pictures about the friendly people who picked me up hitchhiking in Mongolia! It can be done! #mongolia   #hitchhiking   #hitchhiker   #hitchhike   #travel   #travelblog  
It's risky, lonely and time-consuming, but hitchhiking in Mongolia is my kind of thing.

Don't be afraid of going to Russia (if you can get the horrible-to-get visa)! It's worth the effort. Some inspiration (maybe) for you here:
Look, this is long and I'm not going to apologize for it. You try spending a month in Russia and have only a little to say.

SCALDING HOT new blog post: "Reading Tolstoy on the 325 to Belogorsk, Russia" It's alllll about going through the most remote part of southern Siberia--which isn't allllll that remote, but still. A compelling read, a real page-turner!

It's impossible to have a dearth of stories after hitchhiking and taking the train through remote Russia.

LAST blog post summing up Mongolia and why not to do it like me.
#mongolia   #travel   #backpacking   #hitchhiking   #rtw   #globetrotter   #travelblog   #travelblogger   #blog   #blogger  
Does it matter how we travel in Mongolia if we enjoy what we did see? Is it a heavy question?

White hot NEW blog post, some unexpected funkiness straight outta Mongolia! Wretched hotels, cool travelers and the best stoplights ever seen. #mongolia   #olgii   #travel   #travelblog   #travelblogger   #backpacker   #backpacking   #ontheroad  
I wasn't sure I would ever find myself in western Mongolia. I came for the stoplights.

NEW blog post about the nitty gritty of traveling in Russia with a few nifty pix thrown in for good measure.
Answering the timeless question: what do I need to know to successfully travel in Russia?
