Meg, thanks for your hospitality and all the fun we had, thanks to you and your daughter (who looks great wearing my Russian army hat ;)).
Our days in UB were nice, but thanks to you, our days in the Mongolian country side were super special! You run a great business, so I hope you have some time to relax now.

Meg was our guide on a 5 day central Mongolia trip as well as our host for two nights at her place. We had a great time with her in the Mongolian countryside as well as in UB. Meg’s humour and her natural way made it a very personal tour. I am looking forward to welcome you at my place on your southern Europe trip.
