. “My name is GULAB, it means the rose flower” No WAY ?!? My name is ROSIE !! It’s the same ? . . And that was the beginning of a beautiful evening ? Walking down the back streets of Liberty market in Lahore, I came across a series of small shops selling an array of exquisite colorful fabrics, clothing and handy crafts. These are from the Sindh region I was told. Just then, a man came from his shop to invite me in. His name was Gulab, which just so happened to translate the same as my name! When he introduced himself, and we realized we shared the same name, we both burst into happy laughter. Gulab shared with me the origin and details of the shops collection. They came from his village in Mithi, a region of Pakistan known as Sindh. The women of the Thar desert worked diligently to create these elaborate pieces of art. It’s their main source of income. The people of this region are very poor and have very little but are very rich in culture. I was told about the beautiful traditional dresses and how local women are garnished with silver and the unmarried girls have bangles up their entire arms ! Gulab let me try on the dresses (ghagra) also a Peshawari karag (diff region) and decorated me with a traditional matha Patti (headdress) and even showed me the different ways the women would wear their shall. Then, to my surprise, I got a grand show of the traditional hip dance that the men do in Sindh. Gulab was a special character with a very kind heart ❤️ he treated my friend and I to Kashmiri chai and invited me to come to his village when I pass through the area so that I can meet the women who make the garments and see the process. . . . As I start my route across Pakistan and I am too excited to see all of this beauty, to meet these incredible people, and to share the diverse culture of Pakistan with the world !
“We’re going to sleep here tonight together, getting all cozy in her room. I get a local shower experience here. Persana has boiled some water for me. She’s putting the parade in my hair. This one she gifted me when I visited her last time”, she further said while exploring her visit to Persana’s home.
“I want to support her family”, she says about the family of Persana. Despite hailing from the poor socio-economic standing, Persana’s family has welcomed her yet again in the house, served her with food and also allowed her to stay overnight in the house.
What is the most important gift according to Gabrielle?
The most important gift we can give to someone is our unfiltered, pure, unconditional, and genuine love. Isn’t that what we all want? To be accepted worthy to be loved

Everyone told me it was too dangerous to come to Pakistan as a single female, let alone ride a motorcycle across the country. Now 1500 km’s into my tour I can tell you first hand what it’s like to travel Pakistan as a solo female and what I’ve experienced so far. Countless smiles and cheers of joy as I pass people and they realize it’s a female riding. Numerous offers to stay in locals homes wherever I stop, families are always inviting me to stay with them. When I stop for chai or snacks at a store, most often someone will buy it for me, or the owner will not let me pay, saying I’m a guest in their country and they would love to gift this to me. Food food and more food! wherever I go, I’m offered to eat wonderful home cooked food ? or offered gifts of food from street vendors as I pass by. Everyone wants to say hello and ask where I’m from and are curious what I think about Pakistan. They want me to know that Islam is a Peace and love and that I am accepted just the way I am. I’ve been gifted many things now by the people and families I stay with and been given the highest attention and hospitality, even if they don’t have much to give, they make sure I’m happy. And they give with their whole hearts. So many beautiful connections & heart felt moments, I have truly fallen in love with the people here? This is Pakistan. This is the country of Peace and Love. And this is my unedited experience so far. As a solo female traveling by motorcycle. Pakistan has suffered greatly in past years due to the continuous negative image the media portrays. Since many years now, they aren’t used to seeing tourists. So they’re overjoyed to see a foreigner. Not because I‘m anyone special, but because it gives them hope. Hope that Pakistan will once again be recognized for the beautiful country it is and the true heart of the people will be seen. People have labeled Pakistan as dangerous or that the people aren’t good. And I’ve seen how that personally affects the people here, it brings them to tears to have such accusations, and it breaks my heart to know what is said and how they’re treated abroad having experienced the culture first hand and how they’ve treated me
