World Expeditions is an adventure travel company who we have just started speaking with about our project, but in the meantime, they wanted to help us out by offering a raffle prize that was sure to inspire you to take the path less travelled. They have provided a limited edition, signed copy of Tim Cope’s book On the Trail of Genghis Khan along with the DVD.
In June 2004 Tim set off on an epic journey, 10,000km from Mongolia to Hungary by Horse – a journey that eventually took him more than three years and led him on a deep journey into the fabric of nomad society on the Eurasian steppe. 137 hours of film, and 4 years of book writing later, his experience can now be seen in a documentary series titled ‘The Trail of Genghis Khan‘ (released 2010), and now a book, released by Bloomsbury: On The Trail of Genghis Khan, An Epic Journey Through the Land of the Nomads.
Tim has also kept busy leading trekking tours for World Expeditions. His intimate knowledge and passion for Mongolian culture provides travellers with a truly inimitable glimpse into the open and nomadic Mongolian way of life.
A lesser known tidbit is that Tim Cope is the brother of Cam Cope, who took several trips as a Portrait Equality photographer this year – you can see some of his images at the exhibition. The farther we travel, the more we feel like it’s a small world.
