It was late March, for the first time after 4 years I didn't have a girlfriend and I suddenly didn't feel like spending summer in Slovakia. And I knew there's this IAESTE organization which could arrange some summer internship for me. I've checked the list of destinations and as expected in late March, most of the places were already taken. Left ones were some boring European countries...and Pakistan :)
Over the next 4 months, I had to finalize quite a lot of paperwork, had 3 Visa trips to Pakistani embassy in Vienna (Austria) because there's no embassy in Slovakia, took 8 vaccination shots and on July 14h, I was good to go, boarding a plane in direction -> Dubai -> Islamabad.
Drunk guy with 5kg protein powder in his luggage flying to Islamabad...Stupid enough, because I was trying to be a bodybuilder those days, half of my luggage was a 5kg protein powder just in case they don't have such stuff there :D..Also, I was heading to country with complete ban on alcohol of any sort, still half drunk after finishing a 4 day-long music festival just 12 hours prior to my plane departure.
My experienceThose tree months were probably the most important 3 months of my life so far. I've realized many of true life's values, met AMAZING beautiful people, saw some real hard life stories and but also a georgous country and its culture. I've also understood what real islamic religion is about and how massively misinterpeted it is in the western world.
Some random pictures to wake up your interest :D
Now let's talk together about our difficult tough lives and our problems...
I hope that in these posts I'll be able to properly explain what I've experienced that summer so you all could get some value out of it.
Thanks for reading! Martin
