I took this shot from the balcony of our accommodation in 2006. We travelled to Ohrid by bus from Skopje and had a fabulous time by the beautiful lake.

Monday Morning Blues – Uzbekistan Train Stations

I have magical memories of my 2018 trip to Uzbekistan. We zipped about on the train taking in Bukhara, Samarkand, Khiva & Tashkent. Here are a couple of the station buildings.

Thankfully nobody was […]
