This time next year, my husband and I will be returning from Australia back to the UK, travelling overland, and I've just started blogging the planning and the journey itself here: http://overlanding.wordpress.com/. Any comments, suggestions, advice and other people's experiences on this kind of journey will be gratefully received.

But people now started to concluding on the Media News, as how they are sincere and commited with their jobs. This means, if someone look on the ground realities, for sure will observe totally different, therefore projecting/ presenting this country negatively only limited till media, but entire country especially country sides are quite safest places to explore.

A good example of how there's much more to Pakistan than scary headlines!

Pakistan – Fashion Week
by Salmon Massod


"LAHORE, Pakistan — Security for Lahore Fashion Week was, inevitably, tight.

The show was organized by the Pakistan Fashion Design Council and it saw the glitterati of Lahore applauding 32 designers from around the country who gathered to celebrate a glamorous event that organizers showcased as being representative of Pakistan’s rich culture, and burgeoning fashion industry.

Seats were filled almost immediately for the eight shows every day, forcing many to stand amid mad screams, applause, boisterous cheering and blaring music as 30 models sashayed down the aisle. There was enough of a display of cleavage, navel and skin to infuriate the country’s conservative mullahs."
