This week, I traveled to the beautiful country of Iraq. All my life I'd heard of the war in Iraq and how dangerous it was to visit, but I wanted to go there and explore if for myself to hear the stories that didn't make it into the media. So, along with Drew Binsky, Lexie Alford and Cory Martin, we were taken around Iraqi Kurdistan by our amazing guide, Baderkhan.
Thank you to Lexie Limitless for joining us on this crazy adventure:

Hearing that man sing nearly made me cry, it reminded me of my Armenian Family who have also suffered so much. The world is beautiful, people are kind, we only need the strength to see it.

The Iraqi Christians people are called Assyrian and Chaldean. They are not Arab or Kurdish. The world needs to know the truth. Don’t believe when they say Christian that they are talking about Kurds or Arabs. Please people do some more research.

After watching this, i can see how ungrateful people here in the U.S are... this really changes my mindset on the world, they have so little and have been through so much yet they laugh and make the best of it, coming from me someone who lives in Miami there’s people upset they don’t have a Mercedes... it just shows you how you really don’t need anything in this world but family, love and a different perspective to be happy! I’m very moved by this!

Brilliant vid I love all your videos
Though I’ve been slowly exploring all the yes theory adventures, this vid was the one I shared with several friends and family members. Exploring places no one was allowed into through the connections of your guide, Baderkahn and his contagious laugh, it just needed to be shared. Got an ad to seek discomfort merch and was browsing the site when Lexi expressed the difference between male and female travellers. I couldn’t clap loud enough and I’m glad she raised your awareness. I wish I could have gone the places I wanted when I first lived in Europe but I was too scared. She’s inspirational thank you for sharing. Lookin forward to my merch! 😻

Its ironic how the stereotypes tend to fill our heads what a butthole of a world these countries are (Iraq, Afghanistan), but holy moly, people who life there are the most beautiful, friendly people i have ever seen. I live in central Europe and people in here are so disconnected.

This is a very wide eye opening for everyone. We are all people, even if we don't have same religious beliefs but we all have our own God. We all deserve to be loved. "Changing one mindset, even if slow progress. One will call me tourist and not terrorist'" I was really touched by this. Thank you so much Yes Theory!

Swiss Day ago
@Katrina I'm just saying the he's gonna call it Iraqi Kurdistan because it's formally known as Iraqi Kurdistan. When you guys get your independence, people will call it Kurdistan.
Katrina Day ago
@Swiss You dont get my point you're probably not even kurdish. You would look at it differently considering we've been fighting for our independence so yeah maybe its iraqi Kurdistan to you and whoever agrees with you but it will always be Kurdistan for me and whoever agrees with me. Thanks for the information i knew already but did not need 🤦‍♀️
Swiss Day ago
@Katrina it's formally recognized as Iraqi Kurdistan and is still in Iraq. For it to be recognized as Kurdistan, you guys need to get independence.
