Switzerland to Mongolia in a D110 and Prado

I love my job. Each day I get to see an amazing adventure that someone has undertaken, a new beautiful country a traveler has visited, or an exotic destination that I have never heard of, and it all inspires me to wander. Although nearly every photo and video is exciting, I occasionally stumble upon one that is so wonderful it strikes a particular cord and leaves me with nothing but a burning desire to travel. Watching Milo’s video for the first time did just that. His journey spans from the beautiful mountains of Switzerland, across breath-taking plains to Mongolia, and through the lives of some amazing people along the way. Below are a few photographs from his journey, as well as the video that inspired this post. I hope you enjoy and share it as much as I have.

Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Chris didn’t receive a real taste of the outdoors until moving to Prescott, Arizona, in 2009. While working on his business degree, he learned to fly and spent his weekends exploring the Arizona desert and high country. It was there that he fell in love with backcountry travel and four-wheel drive vehicles, eventually leading him to Overland Journal and Expedition Portal. After several years of honing his skills in writing, photography, and off-road driving, Chris now works for the company full time as Expedition Portal's Senior Editor while living full-time on the road.
