Exploring the Silk Route in Central Asia

One of my lifelong dreams has been to backpack in Central Asia, on routes that ancient caravans took along the Silk Road, travelling along paths carved through desolate deserts, vast grasslands, and soaring mountains, places where the Western civilizations met the Eastern.

Next project: Afghanistan, plus one

Afghanistan has been on my list for a while and I was initially planning a six month trip from Kabul to Istanbul. Unfortunately that’s a long time commitment so I am thinking of doing something shorter. Parts of Afghanistan are now free from the Taliban and safe (well…) to travel and I am looking into traveling to some places in the region.
