Re: Bishkek-Tashkent train: reports and Q&A

Hi everybody, planning to take the train End of August (30th) from Tashkent to Bishkek, could we pick up the ticket anywhere in Kazahkstan? We're arriving in Almaty and could pick it up then...

Hi everybody, we wanted to attend the Opening Ceremony of the World Nomad Games but the app is not working apparently.

Re: Big Silk Road trips: Weather planning Q&A

Hi everybody, I found this thread to be most suitable to ask for traveling weather advice :) We're two guys that want to travel a little bit in Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and maybe (if there is enough time) Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan (Almaty region to avoid time spent on a train/plane).
