This week, I traveled to the beautiful country of Iraq. All my life I'd heard of the war in Iraq and how dangerous it was to visit, but I wanted to go there and explore if for myself to hear the stories that didn't make it into the media. So, along with Drew Binsky, Lexie Alford and Cory Martin, we were taken around Iraqi Kurdistan by our amazing guide, Baderkhan.

  • I live in Basra Iraq there was no reason for you guys to get scared to go into Iraq and the host scared you as well obviously the soldier is gonna ask who they are especially around that area but even if they knew who you were they wouldn't have done anything. if you wanted to see the real Iraq come to Karbala Baghdad Basra. btw the 100$ behind the glass is a currency exchange and he takes his precautions there's definitely a weapon hidden near him. I did love the video though.... much love from Basra Iraq.

  • After watching this, i can see how ungrateful people here in the U.S are... this really changes my mindset on the world, they have so little and have been through so much yet they laugh and make the best of it, coming from me someone who lives in Miami thereโ€™s people upset they donโ€™t have a Mercedes... it just shows you how you really donโ€™t need anything in this world but family, love and a different perspective to be happy! Iโ€™m very moved by this!

Exploring places no one was allowed into through the connections of your guide, Baderkahn and his contagious laugh, it just needed to be shared. Got an ad to seek discomfort merch and was browsing the site when Lexi expressed the difference between male and female travellers. I couldnโ€™t clap loud enough and Iโ€™m glad she raised your awareness. I wish I could have gone the places I wanted when I first lived in Europe but I was too scared. Sheโ€™s inspirational thank you for sharing. Lookin forward to my merch! ๐Ÿ˜ป
