As British travel writer and explorer Freya Stark, who was the first Westerner to travel through many regions of the Middle East, wrote in her book, “Baghdad Sketches”:
To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world. You are surrounded by adventure. You have no idea of what is in store for you, but you will, if you are wise and know the art of travel, let yourself go on the stream of the unknown and accept whatever comes in the spirit in which the gods may offer it.
