🙏🏼 Thank you for making these videos possible through your support of Seek Discomfort
This week, I traveled to the beautiful country of Iraq. All my life I'd heard of the war in Iraq and how dangerous it was to visit, but I wanted to go there and explore if for myself to hear the stories that didn't make it into the media. So, along with Drew Binsky, Lexie Alford and Cory Martin, we were taken around Iraqi Kurdistan by our amazing guide, Baderkhan.
Thank you to Lexie Limitless for joining us on this crazy adventure:

  • After watching this, i can see how ungrateful people here in the U.S are... this really changes my mindset on the world, they have so little and have been through so much yet they laugh and make the best of it, coming from me someone who lives in Miami there’s people upset they don’t have a Mercedes... it just shows you how you really don’t need anything in this world but family, love and a different perspective to be happy! I’m very moved by this!

  • Though I’ve been slowly exploring all the yes theory adventures, this vid was the one I shared with several friends and family members. Exploring places no one was allowed into through the connections of your guide, Baderkahn and his contagious laugh, it just needed to be shared. Got an ad to seek discomfort merch and was browsing the site when Lexi expressed the difference between male and female travellers. I couldn’t clap loud enough and I’m glad she raised your awareness. I wish I could have gone the places I wanted when I first lived in Europe but I was too scared. She’s inspirational thank you for sharing. Lookin forward to my merch! 😻

  • Its ironic how the stereotypes tend to fill our heads what a butthole of a world these countries are (Iraq, Afghanistan), but holy moly, people who life there are the most beautiful, friendly people i have ever seen. I live in central Europe and people in here are so disconnected.
