🙏🏼 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:

  • I'm from India & follow one of the world's oldest religion : Zoroastrian which was followed in Persia as well as throughout the region. Who is this wonderful, marvelous & ever so inspiring person from Kurdistan? I am so motivated by his outlook to life & the way he says ' when you laugh, you give as much of positive energy to get it back ' Is he a SEworld'er too ? Can I subscribe to his channel ? May the Good lord bless him always. 🙏

  • I live in Basra Iraq there was no reason for you guys to get scared to go into Iraq and the host scared you as well obviously the soldier is gonna ask who they are especially around that area but even if they knew who you were they wouldn't have done anything. if you wanted to see the real Iraq come to Karbala Baghdad Basra. btw the 100$ behind the glass is a currency exchange and he takes his precautions there's definitely a weapon hidden near him. I did love the video though.... much love from Basra Iraq.

I’m very moved by this!
