Hola, Merhaba, Привет, 你好!
My name is David, I’m a bioarchaeologist in Central Asia who spends his days wandering the globe and dreaming of far off places. I recently moved back to the US after a year of studying and working in Astana, Kazakhstan, and exploring Central Asia. As an undergrad, I was bit by the travel bug hard and studied abroad in Bolivia (twice) to conduct research in anthropology and bioarchaeology, Romania for bioarchaeology, and Singapore to study languages and Asian history. While on those trips, I traveled around and explored the different cultures and places of each region. I’m an amateur travel photographer with a penchant for landscape and architecture photography, my favorites of which will be featured here.
I spent 4 months backpacking across South America from Lima, Peru to Montevideo, Uruguay in 2015, which you can read about here. Right now I’m recounting my experiences from past trips with some posts about life and travel in Central Asia (and beyond)!
