For some people, the idea of traveling alone might sound like an experience they would rather avoid, but for adventurous Bakhtiyar it is just an ordinary day. Bakhtiyar is a young boy from Uzbekistan who travels the world exploring a different country each month. Bakhtiyar’s adventure began when his father Askar started sending us material for our July 2013 Country of the Month, Uzbekistan. When Bakhtiyar found out that SCOLA subscribers were experiencing a new country each month he wanted to do the same!
Bakhtiyar’s travel itinerary follows the SCOLA Country of the Month. He began his journey in Nepal, where he joined a group of women planting paddy and singing Ropai songs. After Nepal, Bakhtiyar made his way to the Philippines and even had enough free time to check out Christmas decorations for sale in Roosevelt market. Just last week he arrived at his current destination, the Czech Republic where he was recently spotted at a monastery in the woods.
Bakhtiyar loves seeing the sights and meeting new people on his trip, but the main goal of his travels are that SCOLA subscribers are able to enjoy and learn from his adventures. Following Bakhtiyar’s adventures allows us to visit people and places we may never have the opportunity to experience.
