Oh man, how I love this picture. ❤️ It's one of them I find from time to time by coincidence in my archives. - The shore of the Caspian Sea in Turkmenbashi, the town that was called Krasnivodsk until 1993. Then it was renamed in honor of the late president of #Turkmenistan, Saparmurat Niyazov, who called himself Turkmenbashi, leader of all Turkmens. Unexpectedly I liked the city, although there was no opportunity to just walk around. But strangely it reminded me of Nizza and had quite the atmosphere of a Mediterranean port city. || #everydaycentralasia #silkroad #everydayasia #centralasia #zentralasien #travel #travelblog #travelblogger #travelabout #travelphotography #traveller #travelshot #travelshots #ontheroad #wanderlust #port #portcity #plage #beach #Туркмемистан #caspiansea #каспи

The Silk Road was a network of trade routes which connected the East and West, and was central to the economic, cultural, political, and religious interactions between these regions from the 2nd century BCE to the 18th century. In Uzbekistan the Shah-i-Zinda necropolis will make you feel like you're traveling back in time to one of the most vibrant histories imaginable.

ウズベキスタンのハマム。 奥の木の棚がロッカーです。 中では体洗ってくれたりマッサージや背中パックしてくれたり。 髪は洗うかと聞かれて、ドライヤーあるかと確認したら、すぐ乾くよと笑われた。確かに外に出たら5分もしないうちに完全に乾いた(笑) 出されたお茶は、水が入ってそうで飲むか少し迷ったけど大丈夫でした! #旅の記録 #ハマム #hammam #お風呂 #bath #ウズベキスタン #uzbekistan #узбекистан #ブハラ #bukhara #бухоро #オアシス #oasis #シルクロード #silkroad #中央アジア #女子旅 #非日常 #旅 #海外旅行 #travel #worldplaces #voyage #путешестви #travelgram #instapassport #travelgirlsgo #英語が通じない国が好き

Humans on horses, in Bokonbayevo, Kyrgyzstan. #kyrgyzstan #neweastinfocus #exploremore
Over 90% of Kyrgyzstan is blanketed in awe-inspiring mountains. The largest range in Kyrgyzstan is the Tien Shan Mountains, which dominate 80% of the country and have been labeled one of the top ten most beautiful mountain ranges in the world. #mongolrally #mongolrally2019 #toyota #toyotacorolla #tienshanmountains #toyotacorollake20 #carblanche #silkroad #germany #hungary #serbia #bulgaria #greece #turkey #georgia #armenia #azerbaijan #iran #turkmenistan #uzbekistan #tajikistan #kyrgyzstan #kazakhstan #china #mongolia #russia #tehran #canoneosr #canon #photography @theadventurists
A late night stroll around Itchan Kala (aka inside the wall) in the city of Khiva, which is my fave out of the 4 major cities in UZ. This was a vital Silk Road stopover to/from the deserts of Persia 🐫 My guesthouse was right by the base of the Islam Khodja minaret (cover photo) so it didn’t matter where I was in the fortress, I found my way home guided by the minaret!🌟 The streets start to empty out at mid-evening. By midnight you practically have the entire place to yourself (it's really safe and there are plenty of roving police officers). I highly recommend wandering around or just sitting on a bench admiring the lit-up structures and soaking in the quietness of this beautiful place ✨🌜💯 #uzbekistan #silkroad #centralasia #khiva #хива #itchankala #ichonqala #unescoheritagesite #khorezm #xorazm #islamkhodja #jumaminaret #kaltaminor #minaret #fortress #latenight #emptystreets #wanderer #walkalone #whereiseverybody #whilethecitysleeps

It’s very fitting that @lonelyplanet has showcased the Registan in Samarkand on their Central Asian Silk Road feature for #BestinTravel2020. After all, Uzbekistan is the undisputed heart of the Silk Road.

Gur-e Amir, or tomb of the king, is the mausoleum where Tamerlane is buried.  I recommend going to visit it during the day and return at night to see it illuminated.  It is about 10 minutes walk from Registan Square, in the center of Samarkand. . . Gur-e Amir, o tomba del rei, és el mausoleu on està enterrat en Tamerlà. Recomano anar a visitar-lo de dia i tornar-hi al vespre per veure'l il·luminat. Està a uns 10 minuts caminant de la plaça del Registan, en ple centre de Samarcanda. . . Gur-e Amir, o tumba del rey, es el mausoleo donde está enterrado Tamerlán.  Recomiendo ir a visitarlo de día y volver por la noche para verlo iluminado.  Está a unos 10 minutos andando de la plaza del Registan, en pleno centro de Samarcanda. . . #travel_with_pictures #catalanspelmon #viatgersDC #catalunya_viatgers #uzbekistan #samarkand #samarcanda #silkroad #rutadelaseda #gureamir #mausoleum #asia #visituzbekistan #worldheritagesite #landmark #viatge #viajerosporelmundo #nightpicture #ig_best_of_theday #hdr_perfection #hdrphotography #pictureoftheday

This is a beautiful, hand made suzani for sale in the citadel market in Bukarah, Uzbekistan. The Ark was once a massive compound that Rose from the sands of the desert and played host to caravans and conquerers like Alexander the Great.

Caminos en medio de la nada... creo que de todo el viaje la zona que más me ha cautivado ha sido #mangystau , en #kazakhstan . Quizá por lo poco visitada o por sus paisajes marcianos... de siempre me han gustado los desiertos, ya he visto muchos y este sin duda se coloca entre mis favoritos. #makelifearide #silkroadtrip #silkroad #rutadelaseda #viajarenmoto #viajesenmoto #motorbikeadventure #motoaventura #solotravel #centralasia #desert #desierto

"🇸🇴 🇪🇹 Ajuran (Somali) Empire: Part 10 ~ The important trade related to cinnamon products from ancient China to Mediterranean ports by the Somalis, the naming of islands in the Indian Ocean by Somali sea merchants, and flourishing commerce continues as the surrounding region changes" •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Photo caption - 🇸🇴 From the medieval Fra Mauro map of the world from around 1450, showing a close up of a Somali merchant galley type wooden sailing vessel from the 15th century. From small dhows to Galleons, Somali long past merchant shipping had traded from the shore of the Mediterranean to India, and China. • Somalia: Scritti vari editi ed inediti, Enrico Cerulli • copyright expired -------------------------------------------- During the Age of Antiquity, through Somali and Arab traders, Indian/Chinese cinnamon was exported for high prices to North Africa, the Near East and along Europe's Mediterranean coastline, which made cinnamon trade a very profitable revenue generator, especially for the Somali merchants through whose hands large quantities were shipped across ancient sea and land routes. -------------------------------------------- Somali sailors were aware of the Horn of Africa's monsoons, and used them to their advantage by linking themselves with the port cities of the Indian Ocean and the Red Sea. {They} also developed an understandable way of defining the islands of the Indian Ocean in their navigational reach. They would name archipelagos or groups of islands after the most important island there, from the Somali point of view. -------------------------------------------- Long after the fall of Roman and Greece, during the Age of the Ajurans or also called the Ajuran Sultanate in Somalia, the sultanates and republics of the port cities Merca, Mogadishu, Barawa, Hobyo and their respective ports continued to flourish and had a lucrative foreign commerce with ships sailing to Arabia, India, Venetia or Republic of Venice, Persia, Egypt, Portugal, and still as far away as China. #🇸🇴🇪🇹OldSomaliMaritimeEmpire
🚂📸🐪 Entlang der alten #Seidenstraße führte uns unsere Reise mit dem Zug - 4100 Kilometer durch #Kasachstan, #Usbekistan und #Turkmenistan Station: Chiwa #Medresen, #Mausoleen und #Moscheen und ein großes Lehmlabyrinth: die Oasenstadt #Chiwa ist 2500 Jahre alt. Seit 1990 steht die Altstadt Itchan-Kala als Weltkulturerbe unter Schutz der #UNESCO. 1220 n.Chr. eroberte #DschingisKhan und 1388 #Tamerlan (Timur Lenk) die Stadt. Früher rasteten Karawanen auf ihrem langen Weg durch die Wüste Karakum in Chiwa: an einem Brunnen, den sie cheiwak (Oh, wie ist das wohltuend) nannten. Schem, Noahs ältester Sohn, soll ihn angelegt haben. Dieser Brunnen liegt heute im Nordwesten der Altstadt. #Xiva oder #Chiwa auch #Khiva, kyrillisch #Хива #seidenstrasse #silkroad #uzbekistan_inst #lernidee #travelphotography #uzbekistantravel
. I was told I can pass off as a local Uzbek 🥰 So decided to go all the way!! In a very very old, breathtakingly beautiful, restored and maintained Jewish heritage home of a local and esteemed collector Mr Akbar, I welcomed this delightful couple’s desire to indulge me in traditional Chapan silk robes 160-200 yrs old 😱 along with a very tasty warm tea made with fresh strawberries and raspberries 😋❤️ According to historians, exuberant clothes were a common sight in the Oasis cities of Central Asia during the 19th century and patrons wore rich colors and mysterious designs on a daily basis. Their encouragement led to a flourishing use of ikat, a labor intensive process that requires many stages and layers of experience to complete. Positioned as a trading center where goods and people flowed in from India, China, Iran and Russia, Central Asia fostered an aesthetic that made the most of overlapping influences. The pieces I model in pictures above feel and look totally contemporary. I can see any or all of them on people were I to walk into a cosmopolitan crowd of fearless coat/robe wearers of distinctive boldness. Many of these coats depict sharp graphic patterns and yet others favor delicate flowing floral motifs. Scorpions and Arabic script, paisleys and European florals, jeweled tassels and cypress trees swirl together in a design pool that reflects Oasis life. Sharing the joy!! . . . #beautymakesmyheartsing #queenforaday #silkroad #luxury #goods #antique #robes #coats #silk #ikat #jacquard #woven #combination #bold #precious #chapan #traditional #uzbek #outfit #bukhara #traderoute #uzbekistan #centralasia #traveldiaries #eyecandy with @eyhotours

The Silk Road▪Caravans of Travellers 6A/7▪October 2019: Xian sits the very last of the Silk Road where merchants of Persians, Arabs offload and load goods, leaving traces of cultures, belief and architectures. See the find of Terracotta Warriors made for the after-world, the impressive Muslim courtyard prayer garden adopting the Chinese architecture and be lucky to have a pic with the Monk of Pagoda of the Wild Goose. Miss not the Walls of the City and the city Bell Tower that were remnants of the once powerhouse of Chinese Kingdom. Btw forget not to stamp your presence. Awesome!!! What: Place. Where: Xian, China.

One of the most mysterious and unique architectural monuments of Samarkand is the Shakhi-Zinda complex, consisting of a string of elegant tombs sparkling with blue colors. Harmoniously interwoven into a lively and moving composition, the mausoleums of different times are closely grouped along a narrow medieval street. Shahi Zinda consists of eleven mausoleums that were built one after another in 14-15 centuries. 📸 @pegas.touristik #tripomania . . . . . . . #uzbekistan #registan #samarkand #creativetravelcouples #asia #eurasia #silkroad #visituzbekistan #beautifuldestinations #voyaged #travelcouple #architecture #sonyalpha #PassionPassport #earth #bestplacestogo #blogger #travelbloggers #travelspot #traveldestination #voyage

And this time my wanderlust has taken me to... UZBEKISTAN🇺🇿 Since the beginning of 2019 more countries get to travel visa-free to Uzbekistan and you notice Uzbekistan is becoming more and more popular as a travel destination. With all its' beautiful mosques and mausoleums and history, it is a place you should definitely put on your travellist. Just be aware that you can stumble upon quite some difficulties as Uzbekistan is still a bit behind when it comes to managing tourism like not having enough ATM's that accept international debetcards and Mastercard (now most only accept Visa), traintickets for the fasttrain being sold out if you haven't booked in advance or tourist information centers charging you for a citymap (which is actually FREE! Be aware in Bukhara) or giving you an outrageous indication of a taxi price (80.000UZS) which is even higher than the price you pay when you buy a ticket at the taxi booth (50.000UZS). So do your research before coming here, otherwise you will definitely either get ripped off or encounter some disappointments. #uzbekistan #uzbekistantravel #samarkand #dametraveler #girldiscoverers #lonelyplanet #silkroad #sheisnotlost #beautifulplaces #beautifulmatters #wearetravelgirls #beautifuldestinations #explorerbabes #backpacking
Bien que la route de la soie commence à Istanbul et va jusqu’en Chine, l’Ouzbékistan fut, pour moi, l’endroit qui la représente le mieux. C’est un sentiment incroyable que d’arriver dans ces cités en plein désert, de voir les constructions grandioses que des marchands à dos de dromadaires et tant de personnages historiques ont admirées avant moi. Peut-être que Marco Polo, Alexandre le Grand ou Tamerlan ont fait cette tête quand ils ont posé les yeux sur ces merveilles… . . . . . #visituzbekistan #uzbekistan #ouzbekistan #uzbekistantravel #centralasia #exsoviet #soviet #sovietunion #silkroad #routedelasoie #blogvoyage #tourdumonde #travelblog #toursumondiste #traveltheglobe #lifeofadventures #exploretheworld #travelbucketlist #slowtravel #globewanderer #letsgoeverywhere #canon_photos #greatshotz #voyageursdumonde #voyage #khiva #visitkhiva #marcopolo #MYBESTLIFE

A boy and his donkey. Orzu of Ravmed village offers a proud smile as he tends to one of his family's animals in the shade of a gorgeous sunny fall afternoon. I see Orzu in passing on another day and he is in fact out and about with this very same donkey. Children take part in the family work of tending the land and animals here in the Pamirs from an early age as it's quite natural to lend a hand. This may be because there is an awful lot to do, and the help of all hands is needed. ⁠ ⁠ As beautiful and idyllic as life appears in Ravmed and other villages like it in the Pamirs, villagers' lives here are changing. Globalization is bringing in a host of challenges to the simple and grounded village life. With access to shops stocking easy to prepare and ready made foods that lack the nutrients of crops grown here for thousands of years, health issues have become a concern in recent decades. Cases of diabetes and high blood pressure are now common among Pamiri people, as white sugar has largely replaced the natural sweeteners found in mulberries and other local fruits. Technology and commerce also pose challenges. ⁠ ⁠ Due to the new economy post-USSR, widespread trading of crops doesn't go on like it used to, and families can't produce all of the crops they need on their own. This leads to taking short cuts like replacing items long grown locally with store bought items such as flour and pasta. Climate change is also shortening the growing and grazing seasons. Further, many children of younger generations are moving away to live in either the capital city of Dushanbe, as well as cities in Russia and Europe for work. This leaves a shortage of crucial hands to work in the fields and bring the animals to pasture. The Pamiri people find themselves at a crossroads where their age old traditions are in fact at risk of being lost. Still, I find myself dreaming of coming to live in Ravmed for a time.⁠ ⁠ ⁣ #pamirhighway #pamir #rhavmed #climatechangeisreal #turningthetide #actnow #thehumansbeingproject #adventure #tajikistan #silkroad #village #travel #picoftheday #travelphotos #centralasia #humanity #rehumanize ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠
