Journey of Discovery along the Silk Road

When I announced to my friends and family that I was embarking on a trip to Uzbekistan, not only did they look at me with dumbfounded expressions on their faces, they nearly all said to me, “Where on earth is Uzbekistan and why do you want to go there?” At least, that was the polite version of what they said! They were two very good questions, and ones that I had asked myself when researching the trip, so I proceeded to answer them by writing this book. Uzbekistan is literally in the middle of all the other ‘Stans, bordered by Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan and wedged in between Russia, China and India. This is the story of my ‘Journey of Discovery along the Silk Road’ through Uzbekistan in 2012 and includes a lot of historical information about the country and its magnificent buildings, many of which are protected as World Heritage Sites. Interspersed throughout the story are some light-hearted anecdotal tales of what actually happened on the trip as far as our Group was concerned.

He has also visited India on a number of occasions and has become fascinated with the history of this diverse country and the whole region of Central Asia which ultimately led to his trip to Uzbekistan.
