"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrowmindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts." 

Mark Twain

Enlightened Abroad sits down with Ali, a millennial expat who loves to swear and tell it like is.  The best parts of this episode are the gems of Pakistan travel that I never knew were possible.  If you'd like to travel to some off-the-beaten-path spots, then listen in.  



We've been uploading weekly since March, and this episode comes in a week off, due to an 'unplugging' trip in India.  It would be great to share that, but some things are best kept to present moment experience.  So, please enjoy this free flowing conversation between two expats!  Oh, and Pakistan is now on the travel list - amazing tips.  Thanks, Expat Ali!
