Talk about the trip of a lifetime! This small but so historical country overflows with culture and hospitality. Turkmenistan is absolutely amazing and a must visit, especially for horse lovers. Their beautiful Akhal-Teke horse is intertwined throughout their history and remains an important part of their society. They celebrate them on the last Sunday in April, which is their "Day of the Horse", the holiday of the Turkmen racer.
