Emir B&B in Samarkand ticked all the boxes for us with a great location that provided us easy access to the City’s treats. Meeting other travellers here was a real bonus for us as we generally only have each other…

I pushed on towards Khiva, rather than camp – it would have been the crap kind of camping. Where you have to hide and make no noise and try not to be seen. There were simply too many houses and…

After Samarkand, came Bukhara. On the route I’m cycling west, at least. It was the same for those merchants from the East trading along the Silk Road so many centuries ago, millennia even. Well-preserved Another central Asian city that has…

Intre Khiva si Bokhara hotaram sa mergem in trei, si sa dam o raita pe la asa-numitele castele de nisip, adica ruinele altor orase antice. Stralucitoare odinioara, azi doar mormane – impresionante de altfel – de nisip si piatra.  …
