Trip to Iraq

As so many people asked me about my recent trip to Iraq, here’s a short travel report. Don’t be harsh on me, it’s my first one… Let me know your thoughts or if you got any further questions. Enjoy reading, Cheers Alex

When I was first asked if I’d be willing to shoot and direct a commercial for a product launch in Iraq, I had no idea whether this was a good idea or not. My first reaction was like ‘Omg , Iraq! Why on earth would I wanna go there?’… It turned out to be in Sulaimaniyah, a huge city with around 1.6 million people in the south of Iraqi Kurdistan. After talking to the Austrian ambassador in Amman (we have no embassy in Iraq) and a chat with my client about the trip and organizational stuff, I decided to go for it. That was the start to my short 3 day journey to a new part in my travel life. My flight was scheduled for Jan 7 from Doha to Sulaimaniyah, which is a short flight of around 2hours. We had some delay in Doha but after 2 hours we finally hit the runway towards Iraqi Kurdistan. Lucky me, with my Passport I don’t need any VISA for Kurdistan. Officially I would need one for whole Iraq but the local authorities allow a 15day stay if you fly in directly via Erbil or Sulaimaniyah.

So here we go, Alex goes Iraq. Sounded a bit scary first, but I was sure it’ll all be fine.
