Lush, green, and peaceful? Actually, yes.

Iraq: a dry, dusty, dangerous desert, filled with bombs and a hatred of all people Western... right? That's certainly the image of Iraq painted by Western media these days, although it's not an accurate depiction of the country as a whole. Desolation Travel member Joe Scarangella has recently relocated to northern Iraq (after being evacuated - rather against his will - from Yemen), and he has been recounting his adventures on his blog, Joe's Trippin'. As you can see, it hardly resembles stereotypical Iraq!

Check out Joe's first two posts from Iraq:Iraq's B-Side and Takin' the High Road
