A tourist, in Afghanistan? - BBC News

Afghanistan was once a firm fixture on the backpacker trail, but decades of war and violence have crossed it off the destination list for almost all tourists. Most governments advise against travel there.
But American blogger Drew Binksy is one traveller bucking the trend.
He says he has a coronavirus test before travelling to new countries, and follows local measures in the places he visits.

  • Lived there 2 years. Afghanistan is kinda safe to visit for a few days. Unsafe to live in. Each week you spend there increases likelihood something bad will happen to you. I consider myself lucky to have made it out alive. Had quite a number of close calls. And "close calls" in Afghanistan means things like "suicide commando attacking your building".

The ice capped mountain ranges that seem to stretch forever are so beautiful especially from helicopter. It wasn’t always fun during my time there but it was gorgeous.
