One of my lifelong dreams has been to backpack in Central Asia, on routes that ancient caravans took along the Silk Road, travelling along paths carved through desolate deserts, vast grasslands, and soaring mountains, places where the Western civilizations met the Eastern. Few summers ago I made it there and spent almost 2 months, travelling through Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan.

From the Ashanti golden stool to the Voodoo festival, travelling in West Africa came with lots of amazing experiences, sights, and of course delicious foods.
