When we told our friends and family about our decision to travel to Pakistan for work, some of them asked us if we were crazy, while others asked: “Is it safe to go there?”.
Let me show you what we witnessed. A place that, in my experience, eluded completely the distorted Western media depictions. Explore the real faces and real stories of Pakistan.
Traveling in Pakistan is an experience that is truly unique, enlightening, life-changing and, more often than not, beautifully surprising. We’re grateful for the wonderful experience, genuine hospitality, new friends, and beautiful memories.
Voice and excerpts from writings by Alan Watts
Go back to your childhood. What were the fascinating things?
What’s out there? What’s beyond the stars?
How long does it go on?
And mama said, “It goes on always and always and always.”
The child wonders it’s exciting that this is something that
never ends…Then the child asks about time…
How long ago was long ago?.
