This is the photographic story of my motorcycle tour of Pakistan. It started as a dream quite a few years ago. I never thought I’ll be living this dream; it was just one of those distant thoughts you wish you could pursue but never do.
In the mid of 2008, after establishing a successful freelancing career, I wrote a blog post describing the wish and inviting others to join me. No one did. Fast-forward to March 9, 2010:
It’s been almost two years, you see. I could not pursue it. Other (useless) things kept me engaged. It has now come to a point where my thoughts have undergone a revolution about certain matters of life which, in turn, gives me courage to make the dream a reality.
That day marks the beginning of, what I called, “a freelancer’s grand Pakistan tour”. It started from Islamabad, where I’m based. At the end of the tour, Neeli (my motorbike) and I had covered 5000km in 30 days, visiting more than 30 cities, meeting strangers, taking photographs, attending local festivals, and what not. It was one hell of a month.
Are you ready to go down the memory lane with me? Start the tour.
