Re: Travel safety in Iraqi Kurdistan?

I was there in February and would say Callum T's assessment a few posts up is 100% accurate. I crossed in by land from Turkey and flew out of Erbil. Felt very stable, relatively economically prosperous, and without fail everyone I met was welcoming and happy to see tourists. Great food and stunning...

Re: Travel safety in Iraqi Kurdistan?

Will be going in october so been following all the news daily. As far as I can tell still very safe although there is unrest to keep a close watch on, such as Turkish invasion and occupation at the border.

Re: Khyber Pass (AF>PAK)

First of all, thank you and wow, that is amazing news. You are creating the future by sharing with the world what can be done. I'm posting because I want to cross Afghanistan on foot, from Termez (Uzbekistan) to Mazari Sharif to Kabul to Khyber pass. Your experience was the trigger, the sigh of rel...

Re: Drones in Central Asia - rules Q&A

Via e-mail: We did not mention voluntarily that we had a drone and nobody noticed it as the car check at the border in all the countries was always just a glance.
