#13 – Tourism: Why you should Travel IN Pakistan!

Are you Pakistani, or of Pakistani descent, and thinking about rediscovering your roots? Here’s a great episode to get some ideas on where to go, and explaining why there’s so much to see in this beautiful country. A few weeks ago, we did an episode on why EVERYONE should travel more! Today, our episode is focused more around traveling within Pakistan.

Today’s guest is Amber – find her blog at ambyzee.com or follow her on instagram at @thetraveluster.

In recent years, tourism in Pakistan has rejuvenated and is arguably now more compelling to foreigners than ever before. 1.75 million tourists visited Pakistan in 2017 (according to the Pakistan Toursim & Development Corporation), up 300% from the previous year. Compare that to tourism in 2013, which, due to mostly security concerns, was less than a 3rd of that 1.75 million figure.

#12 – Video Games: Fazool Waste of Time?


In 2018, the Video gaming industry is on track to hit 138 billion dollars of global revenue ,according to a Market FOrecast report form Newzoo. The same research forecasts this global revenue to explode more and more each year, projecting 180 billion by 2021. Compare this to the global TV & video revenue, and you’ll find that there is a strong chance of the gaming industry to overtake TV & films across the world, opening up all sorts of opportunities in a realm that many adults, especially desi adults, haven’t taken seriously. Today’s 2 guests are about to argue that this is going to change. our first guest is new, she goes by the online nickname Saf, and she’s a gaming enthusiast living in the U.S. Our second guest is Hassan, who has joined some of our previous episodes, and is a competitive player himself.
