Travel To Afghanistan: The Next Frontier?
Published on January 05, 2011
Would you consider Afghanistan for ski holidays? I was surprised to see
this link. Untamed Borders a UK based adventure company already arranged
a first ever ski trip to Afghanistan.
Ahh...If only we were around in the days of the hippie trail...recently I read Rory MacLean's "Magic Bus: On the Hippie Trail From Istanbul to India" where he goes back over the old hippie trail years later looking for remnants from the day.
This makes me remember my dad's reaction to my plans of going to Hanoi, Vietnam. Something like, "Why the hell do you wanna go there?" With one raised eyebrow and a condescending tone. One of the best trips I've ever had.
I guess prejudices are a hard nut to crack.
