Nick Rowan



Editor-in-Chief of UK published magazine, Open Central Asia, and author of “Friendly Steppes: A Silk Road Journey” that recounts his travel adventures along the Silk Road, Nick Rowan has an insatiable appetite for all things Central Asian. An Oxford University graduate, now working in the Oil industry for Shell in London, Nick spends much of his spare time exploring Central Asia, having travelled

to all the countries on numerous occasions, his latest adventure spent two weeks tracking the Pamir Highway in 2011. His favourite evenings are those spent on the plains of Central Asia sitting in the warmth of a homely yurt laughing and joking with its owners over a good bowl of laghman accompanied by freshly baked lepioshka bread.
