Sara on the road to Samarkand ...

... well, actually we took the train from Tashkent to Samarkand, but let's not be picky! I was lucky enough to escape the office again last week and headed off on my first visit to Uzbekistan, kindly hosted by our local partners there. This was an educational trip travelling with 9 other people fro…

Sara in Delhi... waiting!

Having flown out of Heathrow with Jet Airways on Friday night without so much as a delay, imagine Dhala & my shock when we heard the news on Saturday night that the UK had been dumped on by snow & nothing was getting in or out of the airports. Knowing how excited I was to be coming to India and Bhut…

Coffee and Carnival - Sara in Colombia

I’m just back in the office after nearly 2 weeks away in Colombia (which I must admit is a bit of a shock to the system) and if I’d had my way I would have happily stayed 2 more weeks! As my experience of South America to date has been limited to Peru and the Inca Trail, I jumped at the chance of a …
