Going on a road trip in Iraq

The next post in my Iraq travel series, Iraq Road Trip: Who Takes The Ultimate Adventure Vacation And What's It Like? is now live on Gadling. As usual, if you like what you see, please tweet, share, etc. I want to make this series something big!

Here's a group photo of my travel companions and some Iraqi cops in front of the famous spiral minaret of Samarra, which I was sure I was going to fall off of. I'll be posting about that little experience later in the series. I'm the guy in the blue shirt just to the left of center. That's a money belt, not a pot belly!


  1. Funny last line, Sean. I'll be checking out Gadling. Also will email you today with questions, etc.

    I saw this heritage site online when searching for info last night. A different type of architecture in a different type of landscape.

  2. I'd want guys with guns accompanying me!
