Somebody Else’s Vacation: Mongolia

vacation pictures header mongolia

I was thinking back to the old days when neighbors would invite you over to watch a slideshow of their vacation photos. Luckily, I’ve only heard about these get-togethers and haven’t sat through an obligatory session, but then the irony dawned on me that today’s generation does the exact same thing, only in the form of a facebook album, and in some cases (ahem,) a blog.

One of my dear friends is living abroad and teaching in Korea. He has been there for a while, and several months ago he took a vacation to Mongolia to ride horseback across the steppes. The photos he shared on facebook were breathtaking. I was arrested by the color and feeling of this collection, and I asked if I could share a few of them here. 

Having friends all over the globe fuels my wanderlust like nothing else can! However, we’re dutifully saving up for a down payment so I must use these opportunities to see the world through their eyes.

I would absolutely love to take a trip like this someday! However for now, I’ll live vicariously through these snapshots. I hope you enjoyed them! 

After a few years in Los Angeles being a renegade the New York native packed up and moved to South Korea. Cartoonist/writer Jonathan Burrello divides his time between teaching English, performing stand-up comedy, and checking the skies for North Korean rockets. His cartoons, essays, and movie reviews  can be found at The Big Insane Happy.
