The Mongol Rally: 10,000 miles driving in contraptions that barely qualify as vehicles for the fun of it and to raise money for chariites!
Looking for adventure or actually some misadenture? Don't have enough trouble of your own? The Mongol Rally promises to stir things up for you. It's a wacky 10,000 mile trip in a vehicle that is nearly guaranteed to break down. But that's all part of the plan. This Mongol Rally caught my eye because my friend is on day five of walking 1000 miles across Mongolia. (Read the blog posted right before this one.) Until I came across this rally, I never knew something like this existed. You can judge for yourself whether it's something you'd like to do or something you put in the 'why in the world would someone do that?' pile.

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.

even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,
