Walking Home from Mongolia

Full Product Description

'Cycling Home from Mongolia' author Rob Lilwall's unique adventure through freezing China from Mongolia to Hong Kong - this time on foot.

Several years have passed since he returned from his life-changing, three-and-a-half-year bike ride home from Siberia and amateur adventurer Rob Lilwall has itchy feet once more. Now his adventurous spirit leads him to deepest Mongolia, setting out on foot this time, on a very long walk back home to Hong Kong. Rob and his cameraman companion Leon take a 3,000 mile hike through the dramatic landscapes and extreme temperatures of back road China - in winter. In this page turning tale of endurance and survival, we visit a host of rarely seen parts of rural China and hear fascinating stories from the people who dwell in the remote plains of the Gobi Desert.

Rob writes with humour and honesty about the physical hardships of his trip and reflects on the absurdity of life, the importance of faith and on the benefits of not taking oneself so seriously.
