    Summary

    I have been in the flying profession for over two decades now Al-Hamdulillah. The first ten I was a fighter pilot in the Pakistan Air Force and later joined the airline to fulfill my childhood dream and passion for travel. Every year we as a family used to sit down and plan going to a new destination. Selection of countries which we wished to see were decided a good three months in advance for allotting ample time for visa processing. In one year we drove across Europe covering eight countries while in another year did the rest of Europe in the reverse direction by euro-rail. In yet another year we drove from the north to south and east to west of USA going from New York to Miami and then from San Francisco to San Diego. Australia being my favorite country, we have been to twice and drove from Brisbane to Melbourne via Sydney and Canberra. Across Canada, we traveled from Toronto to Vancouver and back selecting a different return route in a twenty five day trip covering fourteen thousand kilometers by road enjoying the untouched natural beauty of the Canadian Rockies. En-route from LA to Singapore I stopped for two days to see Honolulu in the Hawaiian Islands and witnessed the Polynesian culture. I have been to the following countries till now. Afghanistan, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Hongkong, India, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Oman, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States of America, Yemen. During my travels I have made many friends and have always enjoyed company of people from different backgrounds and classes. The associations thus made with people from around the world belonging to varied cultures and classes has enriched my personal understanding of life and thus keeps me going for more.
