Today I’m sharing some Kyrgyzstan travel tips for any of you adventurous travellers out there currently contemplating a trip...

Like most off-the-beaten-path destinations, Kyrgyzstan won’t necessarily be the easiest place to travel around and it will require some flexibility on you as a traveller, but all those little hurdles are completely washed away whenever a family invites you into their yurt, or when you finally reach that pass with views over the valley, or when you get a warm smile for using the one word of Kyrgyz you know.

I’ve already written a bit about attending the World Nomad Games and horse trekking to Song Kol, but today I thought I’d share some practical Kyrgyzstan travel tips to help make your trip just a tiny bit smoother.

Melbourne – a hip, trendy, and vibrant Australian city brimming with culture. Its neighbourhoods have personalities of their own, ranging from bohemian quarters with amazing restaurants and fashion boutiques, to edgy, artsy areas that are home to more tattoo shops than a city could possibly need. It’s impossible to truly understand the cultural centre that is Melbourne without actually living there. And it’s equally as difficult to explore it as a visitor.

I’ve been to Melbourne 4 times. Each time, discover a whole new side of the incredibly complicated and fascinating city that has topped the charts of the World’s Most Liveable Cities. But despite my frequent visits, I couldn’t possibly try to share the best that this city has to offer without some local help. Luckily, a few of my friends and locals were eager to share their tips and recommendations for things to do in Melbourne.
