HOLY CRAP GUYS… I finally made it to Baghdad – the wild capital city of Iraq! It’s a place that I’ve been dreaming of visiting for 5 years now, and I was luckily able to pick up the visa at the Iraqi embassy in Istanbul a few weeks ago.
In the first episode of this 9-part series, I document the stressful, yet exhilarating experience of getting into Baghdad with my fellow ‘every country’ buddy Alvaro (https://www.instagram.com/wanderreds/). Our first 24 hours has been a roller coaster of emotions, but in the end, I am LOVING it here and I can’t wait to see more! Have I ever mentioned to you that the Middle East is my favorite region in the world?
