The journey from Osh, Kyrgyzstan to Khorog, Tajikistan along the Pamir Highway and Wakhan Corridor is slow, high altitude, bumpy, and dusty. The homestays along the way are basic with long drop outside toilets, limited electricity, and no internet.

It's been 6 of the best travel days of our life. We've loved the jaw droppingly spectacular landscape, the wonderful people, and the oddness of for days being literally just a few metres away from Afghanistan - a fantastic, exhilarating experience that we will remember and re-live for a long time to come.

Pictures will do a better job than words but choosing just a few from the hundreds we took was too difficult a task so with this post there are more than normal.

Martin what a wonderful adventure. We have had a chuckle about the met office and the local shop pictures. How the other half of the world survive we should all be very grateful but I am sure they are sometimes happier.
