Vladivostok to London trip – Russ Wells and Steve Linley from Perth, Australia were the sole participants on this tour in their Aussie 100 series Land Cruiser. Our tour route traversed Mongolia from East to West for the first time. It was great to have the off road expertise of Russ and Steve and their well-equipped vehicle. The new Mongolia itinerary is exciting and takes us into untrodden territory experiencing previously un-chartered roads and parts of the real Mongolia that most visitors will have not seen. On entering Russia we travelled through the scenic “Altay” region which unlike the rest of Russia is hilly, mountainous and vaguely resembles the west coast of the South Island of New Zealand.
