Kyrgyzstan: land of the high plains

 

Kyrgyzstan: land of the high plains

Life at 3,000m above sea level has a way of toughening you up. Just ask the nomads of Kyrgyzstan, says Jini Reddy. Vertiginous mountain passes, eagle hunts on horseback – and vodka chasers with everything – I’m walking, as if through treacle, up and up the mountain foothills. Behind me shimmers Issy Kul, the world’s second largest alpine lake. It is so blue, so vast, it seems as though a chunk of the sky has fallen down.

I too believe that personal websites are for freaks and geeks. Certainly the thought that there is some hairy trucker using this page for inspiration before feeding the chickens has been keeping me up late at night. But be reassured. The only reason I have started this page is so all my mates from the Star Trek Fan Club can keep me up to date on what they would do if they could get a hold of Spok and a tub of Vas. Well my erstwhile friends welcome to the wonderfully weird little world of Mellett. Enjoy.

I like many things, travelling is just one of them, but it lets me participate in many of the others such as reading, photography, eating good food, archeology, etc.

The Long Road Home

The Long Road Home

After living abroad since 1998, I’ve decided to return to the States. But, before I return, I’ll spend a year traveling, enjoying the fruits of my labour and trying to forget I was forced to spell it with a ‘u’ for such a long time.

Hi All,
Welcome to our big trip.
Having worked in travel for a combined 14 years it is time for one last big adventure before settling down. (Although we have said that before-so who knows).
Starting in Beijing and ending in Vegas we hope to see a fair of this planet we live on.
Hope you enjoy our tales.
Ash and Fee
