    A 19-day mountain bike journey through Kyrgyzstan with Adventure Travel Writer, Kirsten Koza!

    Quite possibly an eye-opening eye-ball eating adventure too. Apparently if a nomad family invites you into their yurt for dinner, it is an honour to be offered the boiled sheep eyes, and a huge insult to reject them!

    Kirsten wants some travel partners to share this incredible experience with her.

    despite the spam that's kind of cool. Too bad most of these things are set up by users and not "official". I like the "risk" rating. I'm gonna pick whichever has the highest risk factor and do that.

    How about a 40 day march across afghanistan, unsupported, or a speed dash through the gaza strip? hmmmm decisions decisions.
