Sweaty, itchy beards. Pounding 45°C desert heat. Lung-implodingly high mountain passes. Cows in lime-green Ladas. More friendly kids than an extremely enthusiastic baseball coach could high-five in the busiest of baseball seasons, and so much more vodka than even the thirstiest Russian could ever dream of consuming. The result of months of adventure (and equally as many months spent editing in hotel rooms from Kazakhstan to Vietnam) whittled down to seven minutes of digital moving-image-magic for your armchair entertainment. Kick back with a nice cup of tea and enjoy a few snippets from the Central Asian leg of our around the world tour.
Huge thanks to our friends for the fun and adventure along the way, and of course for the amazing footage!
Good luck with the rest of your adventures!
