My name is Aidana and I love Kyrgyzstan. I have finished university in Bishkek. My major is World Economics. I was an 1 year as an exchange student in Germany and travel around Europe as well. From that time I was passionate about traveling. When I come back to Bishkek I had a choice to work in the finance sphere or in tourism. I chose tourism. First-year I work as a travel agent and guide and after I decided to be a freelance guide. Now I am working as a freelance guide for 2 years.
What do I like about my country?
It is hospitality.
As far I know, for me when I travel I take attention to people that live there and their attitude to you. In Kyrgyzstan, our culture of hospitality is very important and you can see when you travel around Kyrgyzstan. Most of the people are simple and always glad to help. Once with tourists, we stopped in one yurt, where we saw few children playing and their parents that prepared a typical Kyrgyz dish with meat and when we stopped children were really happy to see tourists and parents start to invite to the yurt to give us tea. We entered a yurt and they gave us soured cream and fried dough with fermented mare's milk and they asked some questions about tourists like where they are from? Do they like traveling around Kyrgyzstan. After leaving yurt tourists and I had a big impression of how these people were nice and like to see us. This is not only one story. There are also a lot of different stories.
When you come to Kyrgyzstan. The majority lives in villages and have own garden where they grow vegetable and fruits and most of the tourists have a chance to visit local houses and eat a traditional meal in local houses and mostly they give the meal that was made from vegetables that were grown in their garden and taste of vegetables is so delicious. In addition, in Kyrgyzstan, we have one of the most beautiful lakes that are Sary - Chelek where you can find apple trees that were originated there and also in forest Arslanbob you can find originated walnuts.
You can see different videos and also pictures nature of Kyrgyzstan. There are amazing mountains that have good trekking trails for trekkers, canyons, lakes.

For example, in summer it is green, in winter it is snowy, in autumn it is red and in springtime a lot of flowers.
