Assalomu Alaykum! Salamatsyzby! здравствуйте! Hello!

My name is Kristina and I am a 26-year-old Austrian with a slight obsession with Central Asia and travelling to the more remote parts of the world. Learning a lot (of and about) languages, foreign cultures and trying to gain a better understanding of traditions while teaching German has been my mission in the past years.
Initially, this blog started out as a mere means to inform my friends and family about my life and adventures when I first moved to Tashkent, Uzbekistan. It became a lot more than that to me after realizing that writing helped me to make sense of the strange world surrounding me, to deal with culture shock as well as to help me organize the chaos in my head. My Central Asian adventures haven't ended yet and I am looking forward to entertaining you with some more (crazy) stories from Kyrgyzstan in the very soon future!

I am also a couchsurf host - if you're planning a trip to Naryn, let me know on here and we can take it from there :)

I am always happy to hear from my readers, so please don't hesitate to contact me if you have comments or questions, about travel tips in Central Asia or about life in Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan :)

Much love,

Picture Blog: Daily Life in Tashkent

I was asked to upload a few pictures of a standard street in Tashkent which would give you an idea what Tashkent looks like and how I see it. The pictures are not only mine, but a selection from a few pictures that Susi, Ulli and I took.

On my way to Uni. Uzbek Plattenbauten have a reputation of being the prettiest in the entire Soviet Union due to their oriental mosaics and decorations

The TV Tower (with the Intercontinental on the left)

One of the more expensive streets

Near Chorsu bazar with the mountains (Chimgam) in the background


A bus stop (not all bus stops look like this though)

Zum market near my university
