A taste of nomadic life in Kyrgyzstan


With the help of the GoAbroad fund, I spent two weeks travelling in Kyrgyzstan, a country with truly spectacular landscapes and fascinating nomadic tradition. I kept a journal of my time there, and then spent the rest of the summer setting up a travel website to provide others with all the information they need to travel to some of the most remote, beautiful and unspoiled areas in Kyrgyzstan.

It was an extraordinary experience to live with the locals and experience just a taste of their life, which in the summer months involves moving their animals and their yurts to greener pastures in the mountains. Seeing just how differently a nomadic lifestyle is to my own has given me a lot to reflect on since coming back to Edinburgh, and I’ll always look back fondly on the time I spent there.

If you’d like to know more about Kyrgyzstan, what I did there, or how to plan a trip there yourself, please check out the newly live website. Feedback and questions are really welcome!
