A Sharp Eye’s Ginny Day on her MIR Customized Journey to Uzbekistan

A Sharp Eye’s Ginny Day on her MIR Customized Journey to Uzbekistan

Writer and traveler Ginny Day and her friend Nancy began their newsletter as a way to organize information on the internet. It has blossomed into a website with over 1,000 articles on everything from health and technology to travel and philanthropy.

A Sharp Eye (ASE) is a free, lifestyle newsletter and website dedicated to savvy, busy, well-traveled people like you.  We curate the web and the world so you don’t have to!  We send you interesting information and have it ready at ASharpEye.com when you want it.”

Ginny collaborated with MIR to design a tour of Uzbekistan that fit her interests and timeline. Uzbekistan, the New Istanbul? is her distillation of her explorations in the Silk Road country.

Why Uzbekistan?In Ginny’s words, “The tiled monuments are breath-taking. The food is fresh and delicious. The people are welcoming. There are colorful crafts and textiles for sale – Ikat fabric, ceramics, Suzanis and carpets. A dollar goes a long way.” 

She also recommends MIR as a resource in this part of the world.

“You will need help organizing your trip. Uzbekistan is largely untraveled by Americans. Outside of Tashkent, accommodation is in small hotels and guest houses. They are clean and comfortable. MIR travel (Seattle) organized our trip and we were pleased with their advice, planning and MIR’s ground support when we had a few minor hiccups during the trip. MIR is one of National Geographic’s ‘Best Adventure Travel Companies’.”

Ginny’s article is informative, full of tips, and splashed with wonderful photos. Give it a read if you want to know more about Uzbekistan from a traveler’s perspective.
