This week-ends' #lpInstatakeover is from award-winning travel blogger and #LonelyPlanet Pathfinder @wildjunket (Nellie Huang, wildjunket.com). Here's her first image. | 'From August to October, I traveled the #SilkRoad overland and the trip took me through six countries in #CentralAsia. I spent two weeks exploring #Uzbekistan, wandering through its ancient cities, visiting stunning mosques and squares, and getting to know its friendly locals. I was surprised by the amazing Uzbek architecture and rich Muslim heritage there. One of the places that stood out was the Registan in Samarkand, an impressive trio of medressahs (Islamic school) and mosques in a beautiful square.' - Nellie #travel
