About Masha »
Guide for: Kyrgyzstan, Iran
I was born in the USSR and for as long as I remember I wanted to travel to England. Imagine my surprise when in 2006 I found myself in Beijing at a tour leader training for an Australian travel company. Since then I’ve travelled and led tours all over Southeast, South, North and West Asian countries.
My passion is the Silk Road region with its history and diversity of cultures. I love old caravanserais, long drives through the countryside, history museums with 4,000 year old (and older) artifacts, and the great variety of food the region offers. My Kindle is full of history books, I always carry a can of Tiger Balm and I am one of those people who climbs every staircase for a better view and buys ice-cream at every station during a train ride. And with all my travels I actually haven’t made it to England yet!
