While travelling through the cold mountains in Kyr While travelling through the cold mountains in Kyrgyzstan I found myself thinking about the beautiful beaches and the warm weather back home in Australia. .

I miss the mountains!

Already looking for my next big adventure and should be ready to leave in the next couple of months. .

Made it to the top of my last high pass in the mou Made it to the top of my last high pass in the mountains. I camped at the top and it was the coldest night of my life. I had to stuff everything I owned down my sleeping bag and even rip up my notepad to use the paper as insulation. This is a view from the top of an old soviet Observatory  from 1956. .

It was time to leave Kyrgyzstan and cross the bord It was time to leave Kyrgyzstan and cross the border to Kazakhstan. The border was closing in a few days due to weather so I quickly made my way there. As soon as I crossed the border into the Kazakhstan side, there was snow on the roads and fields. I wasn't even that high up around 1800m. Only one more mountain to cross now. Excited to see what Kazakhstan has to offer.
