Jul 25, 2008. Mongolia Eclipse Tour July - Aug 2008
We hope that everyone has comfortably eased back into their usual routines after the wonderful Mongolia tour. I (Ted) have been busily plowing through the photos on my two cameras and have more-or-less gotten them in order, I've whittled them down to a little over 200 from over 1200 and created a web slide show for anybody interested. It is viewable at: http://www.worldadventurequest.com/Mongolia2008/Ted & Michelle Ressell . USA
I've concentrated (mostly) on "pretty pictures" of the people and landscape, I'll try and put up something different, more focused on our group, at a later date.
For the totality shots, that is obviously not how it looked over time. There are 2 series of 4 shots (one from the first few seconds of totality, one as totality was ending). The 4 shots are different exposures: recommend camera setting, 1 stop under exposure, 5 stops underexposure, and 1 stop over exposure). Good luck to all, hopefully we'll run into each other again at various points.
Jul 08, 2008. Discover True Mongolia customized tour
Hello, as we've now been home just a week, I wanted to share with you the experiences in Mongolia with your company. This trip represented almost three years of dreaming and planning, and I have to say we were nervous about it. The remarkably talented, humorous, and bright Nara surely put our fears to rest! I imagine that all of your guides are competent and friendly, but Nara is really something special. You are very fortunate to have such a flawless English speaker, passionate historian, and tremendously likable person as Nara to represent Selena Travel.Our trip was an unparalleled success, and I hope that telling of our experience will help increase responsible tourism in beautiful Mongolia so that others will come to love the country as we do. Again, thank you for a wonderful vacation that we will never forget.Please feel free to use my comments in your promotional material or pass along my email address to any future clients as a reference. I did have a short interview with National Public Radio while we were there that you might enjoy hearing--I regret that they edited out Nara and Baagii's names and did not permit me to mention Selena Travel, but if I have any oth er opportunities to promote your company, I will surely do it!
I am including several pictures from our trip for you; one of the highlights, that wouldn't have happened without Baagii, was Donald getting to wrestle at Naadam (in Khatgol). Baagii's wrestling experience and willingness to help Donald learn about Mongolian wrestling was invaluable, and Naadam day was Donald's dream come true. My dream was a bit more prosaic, to ride a yak, and Nara helpfully located one for me in Huvsgol! Because of these and so many other requests cheerfully accomodated, we are thrilled with our Mongolia vacation!Sarah and Donald McLester . USA
Jun 26, 2008. Holiday with Nomadic family
In the event you haven't noticed it, I have a love affair going with Mongolia. My third visit within two years clinched it for me. I can't think of a better place to spend my vacations than your country.Meta Mertens . USA
As in prior years, my fourth Holiday with Nomadic Family was an unmitigated success. Ariunaa tirelessly translated, cooked and cared for me and educated me about the intricacies of Mongolian culture.
The Ganbolds and their friends made me a member of their horse racing team and we had the best time preparing our horses for Naadam. More than anything else, it is their friendship that will bring me to Mongolia over and over again. I thank you Zola for all your assistance and support. Count me in again for next year!
Aug 09, 2007. Western Mongolia - customized ethnic group visit tour
How are things in Mongolia? It hardly seems possible but it is already over a month since we were on holidays there. Thanks again for organising such a wonderful trip. The experience was one we will never forget. Our crew of Egi, Angel, Hasha, Badarch and Mandah were exceptional, and we all had a great time together. Once again, thanks and best wishes.Mr. Phil Atkinson and friends. AUS
Jul 12, 2007. Beijing Highlights and Naadam Festival tour
How can we praise you enough for the fantastic trip that you arranged for us? We were expecting to have a wonderful time but everything exceeded our expectations. We had the time of our lives.....both Glenn and I enjoyed every minute of every adventure. We were so happy to get to share the Naadam Festival with you. You were great to take us to all the events and spend the time with us. It was such a great experience that we'll never forget. I am trying to get my pictures so that I can e-mail some to you. I am not good on the computer but I will keep trying.Ms. La Vonne and Glen. USA
Zola, thank you so very, very much for everything you did to make our trip so special.
Jul 07, 2007. Great Naadam Festival tour
Wondering where you should go for your next trip? I would recommend Mongolia. WHY??? I had such a great and unique travel experience throughout my stay in this beautiful country. Whether it was visiting the nomads, attending the Naadam Festival, traversing the sweeping landscapes, experiencing its culture, learning its fascinating history, watching wildlife, or riding a yak, the trip captures the essence of Mongolia. Meeting the nomads was such a great way to learn about their way of living in such an authentic and intimate manner. I had developed a deep appreciation of their resilience, tenacity and ingenuity in living with nature. As well, I was very much taken by their hospitality.Ms. Yiman Ng. CANADA
Zola, thanks for your great help, patience in answering all my emails in such an informative and prompt manner, and planning this trip.
Jun 06, 2007. North and Central Mongolian Explorer
It is almost a week that we have been at home and still I am feeling the amaizing vibrations of Mongolia. You have a stunning land, so coloured, so romantic, in spite of the so bumpy roads, I am crazy about the combinations of the varied landscapes, the open steppes, the so touchable people, the melodies and animals and flowers that were greeting us all over. Every day of the journey was like a magic for me and I know for sure that it is only the first time and I will come again.Mrs. Ilana Heim and Mr. Gadi Heim . ISRAEL
I want to thank you again for being so proffesional, I was so glad to meet you such a delicate person, I am glad that I made my travel in Mongolia with you. Keep doing what you are doing in the same devotion.
May 15, 2007. Horse Trekking from Tuul to Kherlen
Just a note to thank you for the best trip ever. Mongolia horse trips offer a special blend of adventure and a view to a way of life not found anywhere else. However the biggest thing was the people from Selena we went with. They could not have been better, tears from laughing too much at dinner and tears at the airport leaving these wonderful people. Can’t guarantee every Selena team will be like ours but Enkhmunkh, Erdenebat, Usukhbayer, and Enkhmunkh, the best ever.Eric and daughters. USA
Sep 05, 2005. Fly fishing for Taimen trip
About Taimen Fishing trip A taimen fishing trip in the north of Mongolia is a true challenge. The fisherman is a globe-fisher and the sporting fish has all it sense and merge the geographical variety, cultural and human of the deeply felt Mongolia. Beautiful country, fantastic adventure and fishing trip.
PS: He has been visiting and doing fishing trips in Mongolia since 2003 almost every year until now.Mr. Galoy Gilbert. BELGIUM
