Explore Beautiful Mosques, Relentless and more!

Last shot from Bukhara. This is the Kalon mosque and minaret at noon. I had the place almost to myself. The relentless blue sky makes a stunning backdrop for these ancient Silk Road buildings. It's a big sky out there. #silkroad #bukhara #uzbekistan #adventure #travel #bigbluesky #architecture http://ift.tt/2cozgU5

Bukhara - Cycling through Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan the layers of history are spread out before you: from the ancient city of Merv with its 300 BC fortress and evidence of Zoroastrians, Buddhists, Christians and Muslims we went to the very Soviet city of Turkmenabat. From there we went to Bukhara where Amir Temur (Tamerlane) created the beautiful mosques and medrassas that have been restored to such perfection.

East of the Kok Gumbaz is another mausoleum complex called Dorus-Saodat (Seat of Power and Might), which contains the Tomb of Jehangir, Timur’s eldest and favorite son. The adjacent mosque is said to house the tomb of a revered 8th century imam Amir Kulal.

The Registan by night. A fitting portrait and cultural reference to introduce my latest post; Uzbekistan and the Silk Road cities. http://ift.tt/2dm2HIA #silkroad #uzbekistan #samarkand #architecture #adventure #travel #containsgratuitoushospitalityandfeasting

I left the mountains behind and set off with my friends Emma and Jonas towards Uzbekistan. After a thorough search and a night on the Afghan border at Termez we arrived into Samarkand one of the legendary Silk Road cities. This is the Gur-i-Amir mausoleum of Tamerlane. The blue tiled dome intricate arched doorway and cylindrical tower are typical of Silk Road architecture. #silkroad #samarkand #architecture #adventure #travel #tinybluetiles

I love this photograph. These are privy cells of the madrasah in Bukhara. The intrigue of what goes on beyond each door fascinated me as I walked through the hot dry streets of this ancient Silk Road city. The geometry is pretty cool too. I do an occasional about my trip get it here: http://ift.tt/2cjpq5K #bukhara #silkroad #uzbekistan #adventure #travel #throughthekeyhole #geometrygeek

Bucket List Activity: Hiking along the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal: an experience you will never forget!

High above the Ann to Magway road we camped next the pagoda. The view was a great reward for the 2563m of altitude we gained over the 30km from Ann. #myanmar #cycling #wildcamping #adventure #travel #mountainlegs

Atlantic Road-Norway

The Atlantic Ocean Road in Norway. I MUST go to Norway (eventually) and experience this amazing road … but not during a storm. Norway is a totally fascinating place. (there are several more photos of the Atlantic Ocean Road on this board)
