Visited cities (14): Ashgabat, Batumi, Bishkek, Bucchara, Goreme, Istanbul, Khiva, Kutaisi, Pamukkale, Samarkand, Stepantsminda, Tashkent, Tbilisi, Yerevan



An easy trip, with a good relaxed pace, that really gives an insight into the region. A mixture of camping to allow us to get right off the beaten track, home stays, for local interaction as well as local and comfortable hotels, make this a trip that can be done by most folk with the time and an open mind but be aware crossing the Caspian Sea on the local ferry is quite an experience!
