Most Memorable Travel Experience
Three days in the Tien Shen mountains in a Kyrgyz yurta. Horseback riding, rounding the sheep, fishing, hunting for dinner, washing up in a local stream. A traditional sheep slaughtering ceremony and, of course, lots of kumis! Loved the traditional bread with fresh butter. Making leather with the Sacha's mother, an old lady with a leathery face who sure loved her alcool! Cost of weekend = a case of vodka + round trip from Bishkek. A most memorable experience.
I was born in Ottawa (Canada) and lived there for 18 years before getting the travel bug. Went to Vancouver for 2 weeks and stayed 4 years. Have spent 10 months in Madrid, 5 months in Mexico City, 5 months between Moscow and Nijniy Novgorod. Now living on the French Riviera for 6 years. Moving to Paris next for my residency (hopefully)... My favourite big cities: Vancouver, London, Paris, Saint Petersbourg, Auckland.
