🙏🏼 Thank you for making these videos possible through your support of Seek Discomfort
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:

    This is such an amazing video I’ve lived my whole life in the U.S. only seeing what is shown on the news and hearing about our troops and terrorist groups but you never hear anything about the people and how amazing they are. watching your guy’s videos has made me want to break from the expectation of going to college so that I can travel the world to have experiences like the ones in this video. Another thing that your videos have helped me realize is exactly how privileged I am because any complaints and “hardship” I have ever “faced” pales in comparison to the actual hardships a majority of people in world have faced so thank you. P.S. I know the grammar in this comment isn’t great and I don’t really have an excuse so I’m sorry it’s bad
