“You’re going where?!
Iraqi Kurdistan is so safe actually! But explain that to your mother… impossible.
I was a bit iffy about going there too. Years of reading about Iraq being one of the most dangerous places on Earth had brainwashed me.
Deep down I knew it was exaggerated and my inner urge to explore won over me.
I found out that Iraqi Kurdistan is a fascinating region. It’s picturesque, scenic, and even lush in spring! Who would’ve thought?
What I liked the most was the people! Kurdish people are truly one of the most hospitable bunch in the world. Not only did I feel safe, I felt welcome and taken care of.
Visit Iraqi Kurdistan!
