I love visiting places and areas that are mostly unknown. In this book we get to travel with the author Christopher on his journey in Central Asia. He visits such places as Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikstan. These are not really at the top of most people’s bucket list yet, but after reading this book you may just add one or more of them when planning your next adventure.

Through his eyes you get to see the unusual, the humorous and the stunning. There is no better journey than that.

Many momentous battles and leaders roamed the mountains, plains and deserts of Central Asia, yet so many parts are still shrouded in mystery.

I think the author says it best when describing himself ‘a European who was accidentally born into a New Zealand body that through no fault of his own grew up in Australia. Who in an attempt to find his roots has been mistakenly travelling to places they’re unlikely to be’. He currently lives in Lisbon.

I found the pictures and maps in the book charming and I enjoyed the writing style.

If you love travelogues filled with history and with interesting stories and humour then this book is recommended for you. You can’t help but smile when reading it and I look forward the authors next book!
