The story of the sea that disappeared…

I took a 200 kilometre detour off my planned route across Uzbekistan to visit a place a friend had told me about called “The Ships’ Graveyard”. Sounded intriguing. It was insanely hot and there were crazy strong headwinds for the first day but it was SO worth it. Definitely one of the highlights of my… Continue reading The story of the sea that disappeared…
