KHALIQ: how to catch the Peace region on a budget

Traveling is not a waste of your time; it opens up your eyes. You learn new exciting things. Traveling helps you to come out of your comfort zone. All the challenges and opportunities that traveling brings you help you to get to know you. Here is a famous saying, if you want to know your companions, travel with them. Traveling gives you perspective. A perspective that we all see from different lens and angles. Our truth may not be their reality. Think of traveling as a school where you don’t need to apply for admission. There is no deadline, and the applications are always open. You learn from economy, politics, history, geography, sociology to business in a hands-on experience. There is no attendance and no exams.
