Once on the fabled Silk Road, and one of the several Central Asian Muslim "Stans" that emerged from the Soviet Union's breakup, this one is home to deserts, mountains, mythic cities -- Tashkent, Samarkand, Bukhara -- and fascinating history.

Uzbekistan is certainly a very interesting direction for travel, this is one of the oldest places on the planet! For a long time the cities of this country were one of the main points of the great Silk Road. By the way this direction is not so festered by tourists.
Here is a link to a good travel agency, for anyone who wish to journey there:

This time next year, my husband and I will be returning from Australia back to the UK, travelling overland - possibly through Uzbekistan. I've just started blogging the planning and the journey itself here: Any comments, suggestions, advice and other people's experiences on this kind of journey will be gratefully received.

Here's a photo I took of Yangguan Pass, Gobi Desert. After that...nothing, at least until the Silk Road traders reached the other side of the treacherous Taklamakan Desert, which has long been thought to mean--because it's a cool translation--The place where people go in but do not come out. Yanguan was one of the two Chinese Imperial forts that marked the end of civilisation. Maybe we can have a string of photos from Xian to Antioch?
