From the Gateway to the Last Town of Pakistan
After another job well done, we, the hard-working young and energetic men responsible for reviewing all projects at Yellow Bean Post, contemplated a much needed vacation.
Ask anyone working in the media (print or electronic) and the creative and entertainment industry, taking time off is a rare privilege. So in order to re-energize our creativity we finally managed to get some time off for traveling. We had everything we needed. Free time for ten days, enough cash to finance and then make the most of our free time, the right gadgets with selfie sticks to share (read show-off) our traveling experience, and last but not the least, we had the leave approval (that sacred document!)
We had a choice to properly utilize and display our selfie taking skills at Burj Khalifa, the Eiffel tower or the more interesting leaning tower of Pisa… But we chose to explore our own country by taking a road trip which kicked off from the Mini-Pakistan and ended in the last town up north near the Khunjerab Pass.
We love our Pakistan. We respect our fellow Pakistanis. And we adore the beauty of our homeland. But these feelings and sentiments intensified as we continued our journey from one town to another.
Pakistan is truly blessed with the best of everything – all four seasons which encompass the most scenic landscapes, as well as the calm and soothing lakes and rivers. The genuine, kind-hearted and hospitable people. The delightsome foods (and the heavenly Chai we tasted in every village and town!) And the recently installed world’s highest Automated Teller Machine (ATM) at Khunjerab Pass, Gilgit Baltitstan (15,397 feet above sea level).
And so without further ado, let us share with you our memorable journey in the video below:
At the end of our journey, our pride for our beloved Pakistan had transformed into unwavering patriotism. Our history, cultural heritage and diversity are awe-inspiring and worth protecting.
