Wondering while staring at one of a nature wander, like those rock peaks, and feeling the stoke hitting you guts pretty hard.

Growing up all I knew about Persia was Persian Kittens and the fact that they are the most adorable and cuddly animals on the planet... (check my stories for photos) and I wanted one extremely bad!
It wasn’t until later that I learned about the history and culture of Persia (Modern-day Iran) and completely fell in love. Just a few weeks ago I had the chance to visit the ‘5 Stans’ of the Silk Road. Did you know that Uzbekistan was once a part of the Persian Empire?
The beautiful blue tiles, the delicious aromatic cuisine, the ancient mosques, Persian music, and sandstone buildings - it’s almost TOO much to take in. I haven’t had the chance to visit Iran yet, but LET ME TELL YOU - Uzbekistan is GORGEOUS! So gorgeous that I am actually hosting two more expeditions this fall with some of my favorite travel ladies.

P.S. I was inspired to share this photo because SO MANY at the Outdoor Retailer in Denver this week I found myself in conversations about Uzbekistan. Guys, it is one of my favorite places AND you MUST visit.
