Josephine travelled with CultureRoad on a group tour to Syria in 2022. Read her full trip report below. Because of my work with refugees, many of them Syrian, I became increasingly curious about the country in recent years. Syrians would often tell me proudly about their country and then say, "Come to Syria! Then you will also see the other, beautiful side of the country". Thanks to CultureRoad, I finally got to visit this special homeland of many. How worthwhile it was!
A visit to North Korea is certainly not a tourist trap but an experience that will give you food for thought for a very long time to come. You get acquainted with the system but also with people who try to function in this system.
As our daughter wanted to visit her native country to meet her biological mother, we booked this trip to Haiti. We knew beforehand that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs would not allow us to travel to Haiti. The country has code Orange. This did not stop us from going anyway. We did not regret it for a moment.
