Breanna Wilson

Hello! I’m Breanna Wilson, an American travel writer and Mongolia expert.

I started Meanwhile in Mongolia back in 2020 as a way to share what I’ve learned traveling in Mongolia for more than 5 years. On this Mongolia travel blog you’ll find travel guides, hotel recommendations, packing lists, and more useful tips and advice I’ve learned the hard way.

Read through the articles at leisure and feel free to reach out to me at anytime with questions, comments, or feedback.

If you’d like something specific written about, let me know that as well! You can reach out to me anytime on Instagram or join my Private Mongolia Facebook Travel Group where I share up-to-date information and news on what’s happening in and around Mongolia.
