This week's #lpinstatakeover comes from #LonelyPlanet author Olivia Pozzan (@theruggedbikini), who will be sharing images from her recent adventures in #Mongolia's #Gobi Desert. – Mongolia is the least densely populated country on earth and its nomadic culture still prevails. Nomads move two or three times a year in search of grazing land for their livestock, taking their gers with them. Gers (or yurts) might look like large round tents, and that’s because they are. The wooden framework is covered with a felt and canvas exterior. Furniture is basic, possessions are few. There is no running water or electricity. The nomads I met were more than happy to share their stories over sour cheese, yak milk tea and home-made vodka. – @theruggedbikini. - Keep an eye on our feed this weekend for more!

#LonelyPlanet #travel writer, @isabellamnoble, snapped this shot of a beautiful Kerala sunset on Samudra Beach. For many travellers, this is South India's most serenely beautiful state. A slender coastal strip is shaped by its layered landscape: almost 600km of glorious Arabian Sea coast and beaches; a languid network of glistening backwaters; and the spice- and tea-covered hills of the Western Ghats. #LPinIndia #travel #BestinAsia
