A few pics from Erbil, Iraq. Pic 1 - A mountain of pomegranates; I can eat them all, then I'll probably have dripping sweat diarrhea for 2 days. Pic 2 - ๐ŸŒฐ. Pic 3 - Cash! You can use USD over there. Pic 4 - A lot of ๐Ÿฅ’s. Pic 5 - I believe those are phone numbers that you can pick for your mobile. #erbil #iraq #kurdistan #pomegranate #nuts #cucumber #culture

Photo 1: Kurdish Army (Peshmerga). Photo 2: Iraqi Army (Iraqi Ground Force). I visited Mosul, Iraq, the war zone. These were the soldiers at the checkpoints to enter Mosul. I went through at least 5 checkpoints. How did I get in as a US citizen? That's another fascinating story. I will upload photos from my entire Mosul trip to FB, link in bio or go to facebook.com/dingliu. I have videos too, I need to edit them; but I am not sure when, because it would make me sad. Until you see everything in person... It is indescribable. It was the first time in my life that I understood the true meaning of โ€œspeechlessโ€. #iraq The Battle of Mosul (2016 - 2017): A major military campaign launched by the Iraqi government forces with allied militias, the Kurdistan regional government, and international forces to retake the city of Mosul from ISIS, which had seized the city in June 2014.

One of these bad boys have visited more places than you and I combined, almost 140 countries. Absolutely impressive! I don't think I am allowed to reveal this crazy traveler's identity, but she is just as weird and awesome as I am ๐Ÿ˜Ž @doggy_and_the_nanimals ๐Ÿ“These photos were taken in Northern Iraq #kurdistan

Get lost and you'll find interesting textures, patterns, colors, horizontal and vertical lines. The day before the journey to Iraq. #tbilisi #georgia

Glaciers are massive and incredibly powerful but they begin with small snowflakes.ย Think about it... #glacier #svaneti #georgia

One of the most beautiful mountain villages I've ever visited. I'm happy to share my experience and tell you how to get there. #ushguli #georgia #village #mountain #natureporn

It took me 3 attempts to reach this remote Georgian village near the Russian border. Hours and hours of traveling; train, marshrutka (shared taxi) and more marshrutka. Private jets were fully booked until December/January. 1st: Bad weather in the mountains (Mestia). Detoured to Azerbaijan by overnight train for 4 days. 2nd: I took the overnight train back in Georgia (Tbilisi) and missed the 8 am train to Zugdidi the next morning. I fucked it up. Ok, plan B: Shared taxi/van to Yerevan, Armenia at 11 am. ๐ŸŽ๏ธ 5 hours of "Fast and Furious" ride! I thought we were gonna fly off the fucking cliff multiple times. 3rd: I refused to take the shared van back to Tbilisi. I swear the drivers were all wannabe Vin Diesel. So, I took the overnight train. 3rd class, super fun. I wanted to make it to Mestia in one shot: 10 hours train from Yerevan to Tbilisi. 6.5 hours train from Tbilisi to Zugdidi. 3 hours marshrutka to the mountains. Hannabanana said that's too much, I need a break in Tbilisi. And I did. Played cards against humanity until 4:30 am, 2.5 hours of sleep (that was a break) and went back to the train station. The long journey to the mountains began... #ushguli #mestia #georgia #mountains #traveldairies #trekking
