Is it safe? iraq is a security state, and has a bad reputation. However somehow its much stable than what the mass media shows you! Since changing visa rules in March 2021 no major issue happened. and no foreigners faced any major troubles.
Is it ok for women? Yes very safe! Just follow local dress code culture, and scarf/long robe in designated areas.
i am a Vegetarian, can i enjoy? of course Yes, just inform us to introduce you to iraqi vegetarian cuisine options & international too.
This is an adventure, things might go wrong and if they do, i will be there to solve problems as quickly and efficiently as possible.
You will get out of this trip what you put into it: a positive attitude, willingness to get to know the locals and enthusiasm are all important. Iraqis are very kind, hospitable and respectful.
We might have long walks, late sleep, long journeys. And you will see heavy military presence. This is part of the adventure expedition.
