A few months ago I had the privilege of being able to enter and see parts of western Syria. We went to see a few of the country’s major cities and ancient historical sights. Our trip was very emotionally challenging but also beautiful in many ways. Meeting Syrians, hearing their stories and capturing a small part of what the country looks like today was not a simple goal but one I hope you will enjoy joining me on. Sending lots of love to all of the Syrians of the world. Thank you for welcoming me and teaching me about your culture.
Despite the ongoing war in Syria, the country’s tourism industry is slowly returning to its former glory. It’s also possible to book a trip to the country through the Netherlands. CultureRoad, a travel agency based in Utrecht, is the first Dutch organization to offer trips to Syria since the civil war began. According to owner, Rik Brinks, parts of the country are safe to visit. He also works with experienced guides who can show tourists around the areas that are relatively safe.
It was honestly the most inspiring and life-changing trip I’ve taken so far. I am so overwhelmed by the amazing people who welcomed me here, you won’t believe the stories that I’m about to share with you. since war began in Syria 2011, the media has ripped this country into pieces (not surprisingly). so I am going to do my best to show you the positive sides about Syrian people, culture, food and general life — because trust me, there are A LOT of positives that are yet to be exposed to the outside world. Can you guys sense how excited I am as I type this right now? It’s unbelievable what I am feeling right now. Click on the link below to watch more https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zmK35KMPZhM&t=250s
