Kyrgyzstan: get prepared for a nomadic holiday

It was an average winter day with minus 25 C degrees at the beginning of January 2017 when I was hiking in the Austrian Alps with one of my friends and a group of enthusiastic strangers. We were waiting for the open lift when our tour guide spontaneously started to share his plan for organizing an absolutely non-ordinary, special edition summer camp, a nomadic holiday in Kyrgyzstan. He hadn’t worked out the whole plan yet, just wanted to see if there was any interest in such kind of holidays. It is not so obvious that there is anyone in their right mind who chooses challenges on purpose for their vacation days instead of simply having a rest lying on the beach. You need to have the little devil inside whispering ‘leave your comfort zone, you will be thankful to me’, otherwise it is craziness. It was craziness indeed, but who doesn’t want some excitement in life? I fell in love with the word nomadic.
