Budget Solo Week-end Trip in Summer Pakistan

102nd on my continuing saga beyond the #lakbay100 journey
July 26 to 27, 2019

My 79th solo backpacking trip, 40th country to visit in Asian continent102nd country visited on my journey beyond #lakbay100, 6th continent on my list and of course and usual budget do-it-yourself itinerary from arrival to departure. I did not research that much for this country due also on limited time and laziness.


Summer 2019 5th consecutive week-end madness beyond #lakbay100... another new e-visa eligibility privilege for Philippine passport holders :) #pakistan #livealifeyouwillremember 

Pakistan is home and heir to the famous Indus Valley civilization, which is amongst the oldest in the world. The earliest archaeological traces of Ancient Pakistanis are from 7000 BC in Mehrgarh, which grew to be the "Indus Valley Civilization".
