The opulence of the desert on a backpacker budget

On my flight back to India from Colombia, I managed to work in a 36-hour layover in Abu Dhabi. I met up with one of my UNESCO contacts from my time in Kyrgyzstan who now lives in Dubai. Together, we explored Abu Dhabi and Dubai, including a trip to Ski Dubai and a drive-by tour of the world’s most impressive modern architecture.

  • 💬 A broken bottle of Baltika #7 beer (Балтика 7) lays amongst the autumn foliage in the wilderness near to Bishkek. This is a good reminder that despite it's vast beauty, Central Asia often lacks public services, such as garbage collection, we in the West take for granted. ⠀ 📍 Kyrgyzstan 🇰🇬⠀ 🔗 https://www.judsonlmoore.com/kyrgyzstan/⠀ #baltika #Балтика #beer #kyrgyzstan #garbage #litter #autumn #leaves #travel #traveling #me #vacation #visiting #instatravel #instago #instagood #trip #holiday #photooftheday #fun #travelling #tourism #tourist #instapassport #instatraveling #mytravelgram #travelgram #travelingram #igtravel
