About Stephen Lioy | MonkBoughtLunch.com
In his own words: A budget travel blog from Central Asia, the Silk Road, and Beyond. After several years of living in China I packed up and left on a course that wandered through South Asia, Eastern Europe, and eventually Central Asia. I now try to spend most of my time in Kyrgyzstan, because the hiking/trekking/adventure opportunities are unparalleled.
Stephen Lioy is a Central Asia travel expert. He is an excellent photographer and story teller. On his blog, Monk Bought Lunch, Stephen shares his adventures in Kyrgyzstan, from cultural festivals to hiking through remote mountain ranges.
Stephen is also the author of one of the best guides to the Kyrg capital, “Bishkek Unanchor Travel Guide.”
