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.
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!!
