Do you believe on MIRACLES?. if so then consider me one of the Miracles in the world as I’ve defeated the death many times, I have defeated the failure, I have defeated the poverty and the list goes on. Not 10 or 20, just 6 years ago, I was a guy with no academic qualification, no skills, no money and nothing at all. And today, I can read, write and understand the world. How it works and how to take advantage of it. My achievement is not the money, my achievements are the experiences, knowledge and learning and the hard days I went through. And above all that, the traveling history, I have visited 7 different countries so far including the United States of America 🙂
I have completely and 100% changed my life through very hard struggles and hurdles. I was living a lifestyle which never ever suited me as a human being of this planet. I didn’t get my gifts when I was a child, I never went to a school (though, I badly wanted to go), I was forcibly taken to work at the age of 7, and worked continuously for 13 years. During that period of time, I faced so many difficulties including physical and emotional torture from many people including my close relatives for consecutive 12 years. I wanted to go to School but my family people forced me to work.
Then one day in 2007, I decided to change my life. I started learning computer and English, and continuously studied it for more than 3 years and then started blogging in 2010. Very soon, I became a popular blogger in town. I then started uploading my video tutorials to YouTube, and today I have more than 50,000 subscribers on my three different channels in three different languages i.e Pashto, Urdu and English. I teach SEO, Web Development, Online Marketing and Blogging. I became a teacher, but I myself have never been to school, college or university. Thanks to the internet and Google.
See and feel the difference within 6 years!
I started computer courses in English in 2013, and today I have more than 50,000 students on the most popular online teaching platform called “udemy.com” source here. I also teach on few other online platforms. The reason I’m telling you this all; because I worked hard again and again to achieve the goal of my life which is traveling, traveling and traveling. And that’s why this blog came into existence.
Traveling the world was my die heart passion. And that came true on 10 September 2013 when I first time flied out of my home country. My first international destination was Afghanistan by road, and my second international destination was the United Arab Emirates by Air. The 10 days visit to UAE was the best adventure so far as it was my first by air tour to any country out of my home town Pakistan. I like SOLO traveling, as it’s challenging and interesting. Therefore, most of my travels stories are as SOLO traveler. 🙂
Before UAE, I had a road trip to Islamic Republic of Afghanistan. I had heard that Afghanistan is one of the dangerous places to visit, so I thought to start with the dangerous one to ease the rest of the journey. My Afghanistan tour is among the best adventures I have had so far. I visited Afghanistan again in 2016, but the first visit in 2012 had its own taste. See my below picture near Tajikistan-Afghanistan border in northern Kunduz province of Afghanistan.
On 1st June 2014, I arrived at Bandarnaike International airport in Colombo, Sri Lanka. This was my third international visit, and after spending 3 days in Colombo, I reached Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, I spent 12 days in Malaysia and then I went to Bangkok, Thailand. These visits again changed my life, because I discovered so many new cultures and new people in Sri Lanka, Thailand and Malaysia. And it was a wonderful adventure to visit these countries. (All the complete reports of these tours can be found on this blog).
In 2015, I again visited Thailand and Malaysia, but this time the tour was with a friend of mine. In the same year, I also visited United Arab Emirates again with another friend. I visited Thailand again, because I didn’t explored it completely on my first tour, as I stayed there only for 2 days during my first visit. In my second visit, I went to Phuket, The Amazing Krabi, Hat Yai and many other places. I went to Malaysia by road in my that tour.
United States Tour in 2016
And then came the year 2016 when I visited the United States of America. This tour changed my entire thoughts about the world, as I saw the amazing architecture, the history, the art, the fashion and everything what you name it. United States is a place where you can find the true taste of life and diversity. I really enjoyed my 15 days tour to the United States of America. You can read the USA Tour Costs story here.
The Purpose of FlyingToWorld[dot]com
I created this blog solely to share my personal experience and tips with people who want to visit the world but it’s very hard for them to do so, as I myself come from a very poor family background in Pakistan. I’ll share each and every experience with all of you guys, especially people from developing countries. And if you want to have a joint adventure with me or if you have a great TRAVEL idea then do let me know via email. And sponsors are always welcome.
This year, I have confirm plan to visit Singapore, Maldives and Thailand in August or September. After that, I’ll be going to Bangladesh, Nepal and India probably in October. In December/January 2016, I have plan to visit France, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy and Spain.
