Dramatic and inspiring!!!! A place so beautiful I can’t find the words to describe it.

Pakistan’s Hindu Kush mountains set the backdrop for Afghanistan’s Wakhan Valley . Took this photo from the steep river band of the Panji river which forms the boarder between Afghanistan and Tajikistan near the Pamir highway (M41)

Sure, I'll take a desk job. As long as it's in the great outdoors and has a view! .

The Wakhan Corridor historically made up one of the many varying routes of the Silk Road, where Western and Eastern Central Asia meet. The Wakhan was an important trade route between the Badakshan and Yarkand County over in China. ————————————————————-

A moment I like to reflect on.
Lake Chaqmaqtin, Afghanistan.
A young Kyrgyz girl on an early cold winter morning, washing up outside of her yurt, high in the Afghan Pamir. For lack of adequate facilities, even during the coldest months of the year when temperatures drop to minus 20 degrees in the Pamir Mountains, all basic human maintenance needs to be done outdoor.
After spending four weeks working on that project in that part of Afghanistan, trekking and living with the bare minimum, I remember, once back in the Western world how almost magical it felt doing the little everyday things that we often take for granted, like turning on the taps and get pure water that did not need to be boiled or purified before being consumed. It felt like something I was doing for the first time ever, such comfort and luxury I appreciated like never before.

As we inch closer to the end of our 1,000 kilometers journey on foot, I can't help but look back at the day we started on the 20th of September, 2017. Excited that our mission to walk across Pakistan is coming to an end without any injuries or major setback. Sad to be saying goodbye to the road. But not for long 🙌🏽😌
