My relation with Pakistan
I have been fascinated with Pakistan since I was around 15 years when I went to visit the country for the first time. I went with parents to visit one of their friends and dreamt about coming back for years. At 21 I finally managed to find the money for a trip of my own. A trip I would never forget or regret. The following years I went several times. At 32 I met a girl on one of my trips, we fell in love and married soon after. Now, after almost two decades of marriage, we still love to visit the country and never miss a chance to visit her family, when we go.
Eventhough we live in Denmark, we are planning on retiring in Pakistan if our circumstances allow it.
Flora and fauna
As I am very fascinated by the nature, I have spent a lot of time in the fantastic nature in Pakistan.
The extreme diversity of the climate and landscape in Pakistan allows a large variety of plants to flourish in many parts of the country. The forests range from alpine trees in the northern mountains to small trees and shrubbery in the main parts of the country, to palm trees in the southern Punjab, southern Balochistan, and the entire area of Sindh. The western hills are home to grasses and shrubbery. Large mangrove forests form much of the coastal wetlands along the south coast.
If you admire nature, you should absolutely take the time to pay Pakistan a visit. You will not regret it!
