Voice of Travelers to Almaty

Ticket for my history loving husband

"Hello, I am Regina. My husband was always aversive to the idea of traveling. He hated the thought of even buying an airline ticket. I had been buying for us to go to a nice vacation but he simply refused. I had to save up to buy a ticket to Almaty on my own. I took the initiative to plan a vacation for us that he would like. Being a history enthusiast, I knew he would love Almaty. I finally saved up, bought us both a ticket and surprised him with his ticket. I knew he would be more shocked than surprised to see the ticket but i knew he would end up going with me in the end. i was very nervous but he absolutely loved the architecture and rich cultural history of Almaty. Now, he keeps asking me what destination he should buy a ticket for. He is already planning our next vacation!
