The weekend away was brilliant. It is a shame to admit that a few months previously I did not know such cities existed, let alone the ancient history that formed them.

The train rides were also a highlight for me. Not only were they a good way to see the more rural parts of Uzbekistan, but I can guarantee you the weekend trip, culminated by an overnight sweaty night train home, with four to a cabin and one beer between us all, was a better bonding experience than any ice breaking exercise.
