The journey to St Petersburg started with a 30 hour overnighter from Beijing to Ullaanbaatar. The train was quite comfy with plenty of room for me and the three others that shared the cabin with me. On the train there wasn't much else to do but to relax and take in the views.
The stay in Mongolia was short but eventful. After seeing a cultural show, some temples and more it was time to head to the country side where I stayed in a traditional Ger (Mongolian Tent).
Hiking provided some pretty cool views over the camp.
After a few nights in Mongolia it was time to jump on the train again and head over to Russia. The trip was only 24 hours this time and the train similar, although the cabin was noticeably narrower. The views changed quite drastically along the way as I went to bed surrounded by desert and woke up seeing nothing but green after crossing the border during the night.
