When it all gets a little too much, swap your suit for a traditional Mongolian 'del' robe and become a warrior nomad. Student's at warrior school learn the power and philosophy behind the Mongol Empire through classes in 13th Century battle tactics, archery lessons, horse lassoing, wrestling and yak-cart riding, and Mongolia's 21st Century nomads will teach you how to make milk wine, sing traditional songs and cook a warrior's dinner, as well as ply you with milk vodka.

A week or two in this glorious Gobi Desert landscape of endless, cloud-patterned grassland and massive, open sky is sure to put things in perspective.
