My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

Pakistan Adventure – Tracing the Ancient Silk Route

"When the sun is shining I can do anything. No mountain is too high, no trouble too difficult to overcome..." - Wilma Rudolph

(Atta Abad Lake, Pakistan)

Pakistan Adventure – Tracing the Ancient Silk Route
Date: 9 – 21 September, 2015
Route: Lahore – Islamabad – Besham – Gilgit – Karimabad – Sost – Karimabad – Besham - Lahore – Karachi

Pakistan has the world most beautiful places to visit, deep historical heritage because of its Ancient Silk Route and stunning scenery. It is especially at its best in northern areas of the country famous for its sky high mountains, lush green valleys, mighty rivers, beautiful lakes, and amazing wildlife. The Paradise on Earth ‘Neelum Valley’ Mini Switzerland ‘Swat Valley’ and Mountain Kingdom ‘Hunza valley’ are the major tourist attractions in Pakistan.

Pakistan is also well known for its high threat from terrorism, kidnap and sectarian violence throughout the country. Security forces in Pakistan remain on high alert following previous attacks. There may be increases in security force presence and restrictions on movement may be put in place at a short notice.

We are travelling in a small group and with experienced local guides and Police escorts accompanying us throughout our journey. We are assured of safety and would be particularly vigilant and would take appropriate security precautions during our journey.


We are currently reading The Kill List, by Frederick Forsyth. It is a good read and touches on the places we are visiting in Pakistan. It shows how governments use all means available to win the war on terrorism and hunt down the jihadists. Through a very entertaining story Forsyth is able to give details of the processes, organizations, and equipment needed to find the terrorists.
