I would like to highlight the amount of work that PJ had to go to, in re-organising the Gobi Circuit so that the four ladies who joined us two days later were able to complete the trip but in a slightly different route. This also meant that we too were able to complete the entire itinerary.

PJ was very organised with tickets and getting cheaper flights for us on Mongolian Airways. He was especially concerned about food for my two horrors aged 9 and 11 and went round several supermarkets looking for food that was tasty and had long shelf lifes to enable us to take food out with us. He also arranged for visas from the Chinese and Mongolian Embassies for the ”Ang mo” in our party, which I am sure should have been done by us.
