Goodbye UzbekistanApril 23, 2019 in Uzbekistan ⋅ ☁️ 12 °C
Back in the hotel, it's time to say goodbye. And it's not an easy one. Said stays with me and Noha until the very end, also because we are both in tears. 😢 Tonight we will all fly out at different times, as Aurora, Heather and Noha have their flights in the middle of the night, while my parents and I can leave the hotel at around 7am.
So, the holiday is over, but surprises are not. When in the morning we check out after a quick breakfast in the hotel restaurant, we find Said waiting for us in the lobby! This poor guy stayed up the whole night to accompany each single tourist to the airport and give them his personal goodbye. And today he has to drive back to Samarkand... 😲
When I see (again) the Tashkent airport, I realise this is really time to say goodbye. And there's no way to stop the tears...
I had a fantastic experience that truly beat any expectations. But, more importantly, I met an amazing guide (who even ordered khachapuri for me ❤️) in Said and a great friend in Noha.
And hopefully these will not stay just as memories.Read more
