Did the media say that Pakistan is not a safe country for women? Did you believe the media when it told you that Pakistan is not safe for tourists? Well, recently an Australian travel blogger named Sophee Southall visited Pakistan with her husband Ben Southall. Not only did they tour the country, they shared their experience with the world through some gorgeous photographs on their Facebook page.

Here is what Sophee had to say about her visit to Pakistan in a Facebook post:

“Not only has Pakistan been one of the friendliest countries we’ve visited, it’s also been one of the most beautiful. Exploring the north along the Karakoram Highway has been an absolute treat – I’ll never forget my time in this spectacular country.”

Here’s a collection of 25 of the most beautiful pictures from her tour of Pakistan:

She captured some of the most breathtaking landscapes of Pakistan:

This is Pakistan! Until you visit personally, you will always think that Pakistan, especially for a foreigner (and even more so for a woman) is unsafe because that’s what the media tells you. But these photos prove otherwise. Stop listening to what everyone else has to say about the places you want to visit and go visit them yourself!

We welcomed Brandon and Sophee with all our hearts, and we would love to welcome you all too!
