From Kashgar to Dunhuang we spent 4 nights bush camping in the desert followed by 2 nights in Turpan and another night camping before reaching Dunhuang. There wasn't too much to see along the way, but parts of the Taklamakan desert were pretty spectacular. The Taklamakan desert is one of the largest sandy deserts in the World. We spent 2 full days driving with nothing but sand dunes on either side of the highway. We visited some interesting ruins near Turpan, though not much is left of them. The highlight was taking a donkey cart ride at the Gaochang ruins.
Welcome to our travelblog page. We initally called ourselves "AfricaBound" because we spent a year traveling around Africa from August 2007 to August 2008. At that time, little did we even think that we could go on another extended trip. Somehow through much perseverance and determination we were able to save up for yet another extended trip, this time as sort of a honeymoon. Our current itinerary has us traveling from July 2010 until December 2011 through Central Asia, China, New Zealand, Australia and then back up to SE Asia, Nepal, India and then finally Japan.
