the best trip - part 2

September! You fool. How did you come around so quick? I'm behind. VERY behind. It was a year ago that I was leaving Toronto and heading for Russia... How has this happened?

Nevermind. This is part 2 of the best trip. Mongolia. A place I have wanted to visit for years... and a place that absolutely floored me - in good ways and bad. I may have almost been thrown from a wild Mongolian horse but these things happen.

I would love to see this place over a longer period of time. There is such a vast emptiness - it is such a refreshing landscape. And the weather! Mid twenties one day - 5 inches of snow the next morning.

Mongolia, you old so n' so. Let's meet again.

the best trip - part 1

It's been about six months since I returned from my big trip. It was a four month backpacking trip around Asia and I have not been able to stop thinking about it since I got back. This is partly because I am still working through the thousands of images... editing them, city by city, day by day. Hot damn, it's taking longer than I thought. I just haven't been able to to find the time - but in a way, it's the best. It means I get to re-live that trip over and over and over - every time I flick through those images.

I'm only about halfway through, but here are some of my favs from the Russian portion. Expect more from each country as I sift through them all.
