Central Asia, Cultural Trips

I recently travelled to Uzbekistan in Central Asia. I visited Tashkent the capital and three cities on the ancient Silk Road. The country is safe and up and coming. People are very friendly. Tashkent has modern and Soviet era architecture. The state museum contains centuries old Buddhist manuscripts. Next t Khiva a real medieval walled city known for its clay mosques and huge mud fortresses. We drove to Bukhara . This is the best shopping city with its 3 covered bazaars. It is the holiest cities with its abundance of Mosques and Madrassas( Muslim theological schools). Take a look at the Kaylan Minaret. Lastly was Samarkand, the original capital of Uzbekistan. The Registan is a plaza surrounded by 3 gorgeous Madrassas. They look wonderful lit up at night. We visited the Gur e Amir Mausoleum, the tomb of Amir Timur. I have been to China, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. They all have such different cultures and all are so interesting to visit.

Memorable trip to Ireland-Thanks to Charleen!
This was our second time with Charleen. Right from the beginning, Charleen's knowledge and experience in planning our trip to Ireland was apparent. We were joining another couple with a planned trip a little last minute and she was able to accommodate us in booking every detail. Needless to say, with emails, texts and calls back and forth, Charleen was responsive and efficient. We had a wonderful trip, with her planning details we wouldn't have thought of. Tours, accommodations and side trips suggestions made for a memorable trip. Thank you, Charleen!
