I Was a Wedding Photographer in Kyrgyzstan

After 4.5 months of pedaling my bike, I arrived at my destination of Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Towards the end of my stay, there was an even bigger social gathering that would bring us together: a wedding! Aibek, the Kyrgyz roommate, was set to be the best man, and everyone was invited. It was the day before the wedding and they still didn’t have a photographer. Go figure! Aibek saw my digital SLR and asked me if I knew how to use it. I surely do.

Landscapes of the M41: Osh-Bishkek

The Pamir Highway from Osh to Dushanbe is rightfully famous as a glorious stretch of road with spectacular sights at every turn. Less well-known is the stretch of the M41 that takes one from the southern capital of Kyrgyzstan, Osh, to the administrative capital in the North, Bishkek.

 

(This post was written to promote the upcoming Central Asia Rally, which will drive along the M41 from Osh to Bishkek.)

Why Kyrgyzstan? | Iron Horse Nomads

I always get asked this question, “why Kyrgyzstan?” I guess a lot of people here really want to go to America, so they find it really strange that an American would come here. I always respond by saying, “Why not?” 

 

An American expat considers his answer to this question.

Lessons learned part 4: Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan | Tasting the cultures of the world by bike

As part of our two year celebration we would like to introduce you to some of the people that have made our bike travel a constant life lesson. These people have opened their hearts to us in ways we cannot even begin to describe. Their contribution to our project is of much value to us so we decided to take this opportunity to make a small homage to them.

For us, Kyrgyzstan brings to mind remote dirt tracks, high mountains and generally that wonderful feeling of riding your bike in the middle of nowhere. It’s an adventurous place to ride.
