You visiting Pakistan? What!? Our neighbouring country? Is it?
Yes, it is!
Mumbai to Pakistan - 08/01/2020 (This was my first solo international trip)
Never in my dreams I thought I would add Pakistan to the list of countries I've been. Thanks to the initiative by both the Indian government and Pakistani governments that kartarpur corridor project is open to the public. A little research, Courage and support was all that required to make this trip possible.
One can easily travel to kartarpur corridor, Punjab from all the nearby states and cities as the Indian side of the corridor is well Connected by road.
Since I've travelled from Mumbai to Kartarpur, Pakistan i.e Mumbai > Amritsar > Kartarpur > Amritsar > Mumbai.
So I'll be sharing my insights as per that
