Trotting in the footsteps of Genghis Khan

Australian Tim Cope recently completed the journey of a lifetime: to follow in the footsteps of Mongolian leader Genghis Khan. Cope's three-year trek took him from Mongolia to Hungary, a 10,000 km trip.

Cope traveled by horseback and camel, relying on the hospitality of the locals, with his faithful canine companion Tigon. "I'm feeling a bit panicky about finishing because I can't imagine saying goodbye to the horses," he was quoted as saying.
