Driving to Mongolia and Other Audio Adventures From Around the World
Speach will be in English
Journalist Scott Gurian will share stories and images from the 18 country / 29,000 km road trip he took in a Nissan Micra from the UK to Mongolia (and back) as part of the 2016 Mongol Rally. Over the course of 7 weeks, he and his friends drove across 8 time zones and 5 mountain ranges, suffered countless breakdowns, narrowly averted a military coup, and had to get rescued after getting stranded in the wilderness. He documented the journey on the first season of Far From Home, his travel documentary podcast, and as part of the presentation, he’ll also play some clips from other stories he’s covered in his travels around the world.
