Three Cups of Tea in Mongolia!

You never know what will happen when you go and have morning tea with strangers!!

I was invited around to have morning tea with some friends and the sister of one of them and her husband about a month ago. They are this incredibly interesting couple who live and work in Mongolia. They live a diverse life which you can read about at Robyn’s blog Mongolian Mumbles.

We all got chatting about overseas travel adventures – the issues we’d all had at passport control, over visas, about travelling in patriarchal countries, about food and transport. It was great to fly around the world with friends at a coffee table.

One never knows what will happen over a cup of tea!!

Robyn and Nigel said to me “Come and visit us in Mongolia. You’d love it.”.

Robyn’s brother said “Be careful Robyn – this woman is likely to take you up on the offer”.

Robyn said that I would have to go before November as that is when their current work contract runs out.

After a moments thought I am now going to Mongolia! A friend liked the idea too so he is coming as well. And Robyn and Nigel’s grandson was going over so we are escorting him to Mongolia.

Wow – I’m SO excited. Suddenly I am leaving on an overseas adventure with TWO companions plus TWO more when I get there.

I am used to travelling all by myself all over the world. I can’t imagine what it will be like to have company all the way. It will be fun and even MORE talking along the way!!

So – it’s off to Mongolia for me in about 3 weeks. Life is full of unexpected wonderful adventures.

Mongolia here I come!!

  1. WOW!!! Nothing like a spur of the moment decision. I know you will enjoy yourself, you always do. Will be waiting to hear all your adventures.

    • Hey Nene

      Yes – I WILL enjoy myself. Only problem was that Alexander was due home 3 days after I booked to depart (was committed to departure date) and I REALLY wanted to see my lovely “baby boy” after sooo many months. But looks as if that has resolved too as, judging from FB he is back to Australia before I leave which will be great.

      I’m hoping I will have time and connection to write about my adventures while I am away. I WILL try.

      No doubt we will catch up soon at some cycling event before Christmas. I’m looking forward to seeing you again and reconnecting.

      I’m going to ride a Mongolian “bicycle” ie a horse, so I will think of you when I am very saddle sore!!
