It’s Monday, which means it’s time for another meet & greet! This week, we’re chatting Mehvi Awan. Mehvi writes a lot of awesome articles for us about her home country: Pakistan! We are so happy for all the advice she’s sharing with us today.
Tell us about the thing you do that you’re most proud of (this could be your job, your blog, your hobby, your family, your volunteer work, anything).
I feel proud that I am a source of positivity. I always try to portray the positive side of my country ?
Why are you proud of it? What about it is inspiring to you?
By this, people are now considering my country a safe country, and they want to travel here also.
What is your favorite travel tip, piece of advice, hack?
Make new friends, but don’t forget the old ones!
What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned from travel that you’d like to pass on?
Seek out people with different beliefs and views of the world to yours and get to know their side of the story. More money will NEVER solve your problems. Get outside and do something with other people. A smile, a wave, and a friendly attitude can break down any barrier and create friendships where language isn’t understood. The purpose of life is to live in joy and through love. God wants you to have a happy life and does not want you to suffer. But your happiness is up to you. You are the controller of your own life. Take responsibility for your words, actions and choices. And then adjust them to enable you to move in the direction you wish to go.
What’s your favorite place that you’ve ever traveled to? Why?
The Kaghan Valley is in the Mansehra District of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa of Pakistan. Its mountains, lakes, water-falls, streams and glaciers are in an unspoiled paradise. That is why it can be such a deeply satisfying experience to spend a few days in Kaghan. Kaghan is at its best in the summer months (May to September). In May the temperature is : maximum 11oc and the minimum 3oC.Visit the valley From the middle of July up to the end of September, the road beyond Naran is snowbound throughout the winter and is open right upto Babusar Pass. Movement is restricted during the monsoon season also.
What do you credit most to your success?
My mother always encourage me and she always says that must follow that quote – “open minded people do not impose their beliefs on others. They just accept all of their life’s prospectives and realities, and do their own things in peace without judging anyone.” Traveling itself is a guide for me, I’ve learned many things. Travel helps you to realize money can’t buy happiness. Travel broadens your horizons and shows you that we are all connected. I give my credit to traveling. It also make you realise the importance of family and friends.
