The Tales of Jan Wigsten: Exploring the World PDF Print E-mail
News - Life
Tuesday, 26 May 2009 17:03
Jan Wigsten Tonight at Cafe Amsterdam (8pm) you have a chance to meet eye to eye with Jan Wigsten, more or less a friendly version of Indiana Jones. He is one of the pioneers of the tourism industry in Mongolia, but combines that with ecological projects in Latin American jungles, turtle totems (see image) and a near fluency in Sranan Tongo.

Janbaatar - as his business card once mentioned - is a great story teller and will surely amuse you with his many anecdotes. A native of Sweden, he was co-founder of Nomadic Journeys and still lives his life as such. He has shown many people around and even confronted high international executives with flat tired land cruisers as an airport pickup and a late night homestay at a ger they had to build themselves. All in the name of team building.

The setting of Cafe Amsterdam, however, will prove to be a more relaxing venue to discover the adventurous mind of Jan Wigsten.

Everyone welcome from 8pm

I make all my Mongolia travel arrangements with Nomadic Journeys and have never been disappointed. He and his staff are the greatest!

It was easier to recognize the red-legged tortoise than Mr. Jan Wingsten... Considering that the tortoise is native from South America, Jan was in Brazil for this photo!!! Haroldo Castro
