On My Way to Ulaanbaatar

I realized that I spend quite a lot of time at airports. When I first started traveling a lot for work, I didn’t mind that much. I’ve always loved traveling and airports and train stations have always given me that ticketing feeling that new adventures are out there, within reach. And when I got access to lounges, traveling even felt a little luxurious. These days, hanging out in airport lounges has admittedly lost some of its charm and I find the down time between flights quite borning. I’m not going to mention any names, but some airports don’t even offer free wi-fi! Fortunately, this is not the case here at Incheon International Airport in Seoul, where I’m waiting for my flight to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia (and indeed a new adventure). Airports and lounges tend to look similar across the world, but there are small differences that gives a hint of the country outside the airport. Here, small cups with blue patterns and a larger tea selection than coffee offer were reminders of South East Asian traditions. I’m not sure of the origin of the green tea muffin that came with the tea (or, rather, I’m quite sure it’s American), but tasty neverthless!

  1. Hi Åsa, det låter otroligt spännande med Mongoliet. Ulanbatur som Björn säger. Vad ska du göra där? Vad blir dina arbetsuppgifter? Åker du själv eller i team? Har du möjlighet att åka runt och se lite av landet, träffa människor, dricka mer te? Ja vi är nyfikna. Björn och jag börjar att vänja oss vid höstmörkret och hittar nya aktiviteter att förgylla lediga stunder med. Vi önskar dig en spännande resa och givande uppdrag. MVH Eva-Marie
