Riding the Iron Ore Train in Mauritania (craziest thing I've ever done)

Episode 3 of my journey through Mauritania! Over the next week, I am participating in a group trip whereby we will be traversing the depths of the Sahara Desert in a convoy of 4x4s. In this episode, it is time to catch the infamous iron ore train! All the way from Choum to Nouadhibou. I show you what's in my backpack for the train and all the action that happened along the way. Things didn't exactly go to plan but I always say the best backpacking trips are the ones that don't run smoothly
