Bukhara

The oasis Bukhara used to be a central trading hub. Today it has more than 200.000 inhabitants but the old town gives more the impression of a city-museum. Although a very lively one since a Nasriddin Afendi (Nasreddin Hodja) festival took place with music and dance in the streets.

Welcome!

We had the privilege to see our new family member already growing up before he moved in with us with 8weeks. The name was a long discussion between us until I had to admire Binis stubbornness in this matter and gave in. Welcome Pumuckl!

Storhornet (09/04/2018)

Storhornet close to Oppdal is a very save choice for considerable avalanche risk and/or bad weather. Great view from the top, although not this time.

Khiva II

Khiva was the first site in Uzbekistan on the UNESCO world heritage list, for a reason. Itchan Kala, the inner town within the first city wall is a living museum. Stunning views from the Islam-Khodja minaret, the minaret of the Djuma Mosque with a forest of wooeden columns inside, and the city wall give an impression. Inside the Tash-Khovli Palace, Pakhlavan Makhmud mausoleum and Kunya-Ark Citadel blue ceramic tiles everywhere in ever varying patterns.
