AtW #42: Siberia, Iran and Iraqi Kurdistan

Kurdistan: Picture of Gigi and Dan.

Gigi is about to catch a flight to Hong Kong.

My guest today is Gigi Wong. Originally from Hong Kong, she currently lives in New York, where she works with first-tier Chinese real estate developers. We spent most of our time talking about a trip Gigi took a few years back. Starting from Beijing, she rode the Trans-Siberian railway to Moscow. From there she headed into Finland, Estonia, Germany, Austria and Turkey. She still wanted more adventure, so after Turkey, she traveled to the little-visited countries of Iran and Iraqi Kurdistan.

Gigi is very well-traveled and I had a lot of fun talking with her. Now, let's get to our discussion:
