The start of our journey to Mongolia. We borded the ferry in the pouring rain and having ridden only a couple of miles to the ferry port I could already feel that my bike was very overloaded, nearly falling off riding oven a wet drain cover...not a good start. I was sure that it wouldn't be long before we would start to dump some of our things and lighten the load. The rush to leave home meant that I was already having to re-pack on the ferry to lighten my day sack and transfer the non-essential things into my backpack.

Thursday 16 Jul 2009 16:00
Day 1, we're all packed and ready to go. The ferry is booked for 11pm. Mongolia here we come.
