Snapshots by Mehreen Ahmed

Simply breathtaking. Author Mehreen Ahmed takes us on an incredible journey to many of the world’s cities, rivers and untamed lands, filled with rich history, unique cuisines, ancient customs and cultures that respect the past while forging into the future with vigorous efforts. Through her story, Snapshots we are invited to come along and live the excitement of truly “seeing” different cultures.

Traveling by plane, car, boat, and human drawn carriages, walking for miles through the buildings and ruins of the past, Ms. Ahmed has detailed not only the present sights, but has enriched her travels with the history of each stop. Whether you are an armchair traveler or one that sees the sights through the lenses of a camera, this experience shared by Ms. Ahmed goes to the heart of civilization, its likenesses and its differences. It is one thing to say you have traveled the world, but another to say you have experienced the flavors of the world through your senses, living and feeling these travels and grown for the experience. Highly recommended reading, for those who will never see these lands to those who have seen them and those who would like to go. There is more to see than what meets the eye, more to experience than the travel guides show and a connection made to past and present that is both remarkable and memorable. For students, a fabulous way to peak their interest in world history while broadening their horizons.

I received this copy from Mehreen Ahmed in exchange for my honest review.
