WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE COUNTRY?
It would probably be Mongolia. Completely different from anything I've seen before, lovely locals and likeminded fellow travellers. That's not so say it doesn't have it's problems - those same lovely locals are living hard lives in poverty while the capital chokes under a blanket of pollution. But I think the memories of camping out under star-filled skies in the Gobi are the ones that will end up staying with me the longest.
WHAT WAS THE WORST COUNTRY?
I was only in London for two days, but I went over budget in those mere two days
WHAT'S THE BEST THING YOU DID?
Easy - driving a tank. Jumping out of a plane runs a comfortable second.
Vomiting down the sink in Shanghai Pudong airport.
DID YOU EVER GET HOMESICK?
Honestly? No. From what I've read, acute homesickness usually sets in two weeks after leaving
I'm a little sorry I flew to Moscow instead of going overland from London or even from Dublin.
I also would have liked to have reached some places in south China, and maybe not been stupid enough to miss two trains and have visited Pingyao. But the way I see it, now I have a decent excuse to go back to China at some point in the future.
WOULD YOU DO AT AGAIN?
If I thought I could get away with it a second time, yes, but life is rarely so kind.
... and with that I guess it's farewell to the blog!
