In 2009 we went on this amazing journey to what is sometimes referred to as the pearl of Central Asia: Uzbekistan.
We started in Tashkent, went down to Samarkand (too a detour to Urgut), travelled to Bukhara, then Khiva and finally flew back to Tashkent. We spent two weeks bouncing around in shared taxis, eating shashlik and plov and most of all enjoying meeting the people. It was an amazing and awesome trip and we had a great time. Uzbekistan is an amazing country and we hope one day to head back to Central Asia.
