“For work?” I was was asked when I told I was travelling to Kyrgyzstan. No it was not for work – yes you can make holidays in Kyrgizstan.

KYRGYZSTAN. IT’S A COUNTRY.

 KYRGYZSTAN. IT’S A COUNTRY.

True story: I visited a country that I didn’t know how to spell until after filling out my customs form. Whoa, that makes me sound ignorant. Did everyone else know there is a “z” in Kyrgyzstan?! I’m just gonna bank on the fact that probably half of Americans have never heard of Kyrgyzstan. 😉

It’s finally summertime, which means everyone wants to be on the waterfront. Some people head to the ocean. Others have their own pool. But most go to a lake. How far will you go to find the perfect lakeside setting? The Great Lakes in the US? The Lake District in Patagonia? Or the lake region in northern Italy? If you’re willing to travel for a gorgeous lake, add Issyk Kul to your ever-expanding list.
