My trip to Afghanistan changed my life in many great ways. My perceptions regarding a lot of things changed drastically, some of them being media, hospitality, people and trust. The good part about traveling is that it breaks various myths and prejudices that are passed on to you. The journey to Afghanistan was one of biggest experiences. I left Afghanistan with completely different understanding of the place. The most common perception about Afghanistan is that it is filled with terrorists, Taliban and bomb and chances are that you will come back with bullet wound on you. That is nonsense.
Afghanistan is probably the most inviting country in the world and its friendliest people I have ever met in my entire life. The people in Afghanistan are the most hospitable ones I have met. I cannot name them one by one but they have special place in my heart and I will never erase them from my travel book.
Many of my friends asked “why Afghanistan?”, even local also throwing the same question. CURIOSITY bring me here, EAGER to learn & HUNGER for adventures.
I have no chance to visit some places in Afghanistan due to safety reasons, but trust me, this isn’t the last time I’ll be in Afghanistan. I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about this country that brings people back time and time again. Tashaqur & Khodahafez!! “Don’t be afraid of your fears. They’re not there to scare you. They’re there to let you know that something is worth it.” #afghanistan #herat #centralasiatrip #kabul #malaysian #backpacker #backpackers #travel #solotravel #travelbug #traveling #travellife #travelphotography #travelblogger #travelgram #wanderlust #pictureoftheday #quoteoftheday #natgeotravel #everydaykabul #afghanistanyouneversee #lonelyplanet #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #nationalgeographic #dailypic #traveldiaries #silkroad #natgeotravelpic #wanderer
