What is your home city/country? How long is the trip to post from there, with what connections? How easy/difficult is it to travel to this city/country?

My home base is Washington D.C. The commercial air trip is about a day or so from Washington D.C. to either Qatar, Abu Dhabi, or Dubai. Then the second leg is from any of the aforementioned locations in the Middle East to Islamabad or Peshawar. - Nov 2013


Washington, DC - with transit time up to 30 hours. PIA flies in and out of Peshawar reliably, but better airlines such as Qatar and Emirates will cancel flights when the security situation deteriorates. Connections via Doha and Dubai are pretty easy. Whichever airport you connect from, expect the gate for the Peshawar departure to be complete and utter chaos. - Aug 2010
