Traveling Alone: Mongolia

July 16, 2018

I'm Trish and I think you should TRY THIS THING: specifically, traveling alone to Mongolia.  Alright, that is an extremely specific recommendation, but I think my stories of sleeping on strangers' floors and realizing Queen Amidala's style is based on traditional Mongolian dress will convince you to consider it.

Share your stories of traveling alone, to Mongolia or elsewhere, with me on Twitter @TryThisThingPod or email me at trythisthingpod@gmail.com
