Free as a Canadian Skier on the Rocky Mountain Slopes - Biskek, Kazakhstan (Connected Flight to Turkey)
Oh were you expecting mountains from India to Turkey? No? Well i wasn't either. We were going through a country a little south of Russia. Kazakhstan. Saying south of Russia sounds warm. It's not. It doesn't matter now because all that is past and i'm so happy to have finally reached Europe. WiFi is better and i could let go and blog awayyy! (I mean once we arrived in Istanbul of course. Biskek was a one night thing.)
So pressed by the urge to catch up to this blog, i finished the Thai, Indian and Malay blogs in a really fast time. (In comparison to the process of the Chinese and Vietnamese ones.) Yeah. Don't really compare me to those really awesome travel blogs because my consistency is like the arrival of a period. Like, i mean, who knows when my sentence is even going to end? Oops, just missed the period and put a question mark! (Jk, all you ladies out there probably know what i mean.)
Missing the point (not the period-haha) so before arriving to Istanbul, we had to stay at a small airport outside the city of Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Below Russia. That night, we slept in the airport. But when we first stepped out of the airplane the first thought that came from my mind since Calgary was :
No offence to the other Asian countries but the heat is too much for my Canadian native skin and soul to live with for 5 1/2 months. Perhaps i'm being too dramatic...But i was so excited to breathe fresh, cold, and exhilarating air. Especially to run my hands under freezing cold water. In India that was almost non-existant. It's like the type of cold water when you're the first one in your house to turn on the tap in the midst of a snow storm.
The excitement was short-lived. My Indian accustomed body was not used to the cold and that night, was cold. I can't describe how cold. But it was...freezing. Enough said. We left in the morning for our first European city and country.
Can't wait to begin my next blog on our adventures. Putting East Asia behind us and Europe set on route. I'm really excited to begin blogging about Istanbul! Hopefully the wait won't be too long!
