Dushanbe – Through My Lens

Dushanbe is the Tajikistan capital. The biggest and most impressive city there is in all of Tajikistan. An interesting destination in a stunning, nay breathtaking country! And today I want to share some of my best photos of the place with you.

Interview with – Pioneering Nigerian Travel Blogger, Eromonsele Emmanuel!

Today's travel blogger that I've interviewed is Nigerian travel blogger from Lagos, Eromonsele Emmanuel. He has a wonderful blog, with so much information for travel and life in Nigeria it's hard to know where to start! He's not just great at blogging, but he's a very active member in the blogging community as well connecting people and always around for a chat and advice. I feel privileged to have stumbled on his blog a year or more ago now. Enjoy!

Roxy heads to incredible Ladakh

Ladakh and this part of India, the always controversial and disputed Jammu and Kashmir, have been in the news this year for mostly the wrong reasons with troops firing at each other from the Indian and Chinese sides of the border and general unrest. But there's no doubt that at the same time there is some special and peaceful about this part of the world. Roxy continues her incredible round the world by bike trip in this breathtaking region!

City Rumble – Ashgabat Versus Dushanbe

In the red corner, the capital of Turkmenistan. The streets are wide and the buildings are blindingly white, we have Ashgabat as our first destination city. In the blue corner, the leafier capital of almost neighbouring but not quite because of Uzbekistan, where the influence of Russian culture has not been forgotten, and where building and building continues at pace, we have Dushanbe! But if you were to travel to Central Asia, which one would I recommend? Let’s pit them against each other and find out!

48 Hours and $200 in London!

We fly in early on the first day, and we fly out late on the second day, meaning it’s not really a full ’48 hours’, but it does mean we only need to find a place to stay for a single night, which overall will help keeping the costs down. Thankfully a number of museums can be well priced or even free in the case of the British Museum – and that is certainly one we don’t want to miss! And that’s a good thing, because $200 for accommodation, food, attractions and souvenirs will only go so far. And how far is that ‘so far’? Well, let’s find out!
