1. August Promotion 2022 #3-Summer Vacation! Which historical trip would you prefer to take?
Silk Road Cities of Central Asia by Atlas Obscura- Join this group on an epic, two-week, four-country road trip as you wind through Kazakh bazaars, wade in Kyrgyzstan's glassy Issyk-kul lake, explore a former Soviet military base in Tajikistan, and wander through Uzbekistan's ancient Silk Road cities. As you make your overland journey, passing a few forlorn-looking Lenin busts as you go, you'll cover over 2,000 miles; a dazzling diversity of art, music, and architecture; and over two millennia of history.
Chiseled in Stone: Armenia's Ancient Roots and Soviet-era Relics by Atlas Obscura- Join this group on an exciting journey while you seek out the medieval remnants and enduring legacies of one of the earliest Christian civilizations, especially in Etchmiadzin, the spiritual capital of the country with the world's oldest cathedral, and the spectacular history-filled Debed Canyon. Along the way, you will also discover incredible monuments and other remnants of the Soviet era, learn the traditions behind khachkar carvings, and be charmed by Armenia's modern culture and friendly locals. And near the end of our extensive overland travels you'll relax on the shores of the Armenian Ocean - Lake Sevan - and in the Soviet spa town of Jermuk.
