Iraq

Folks
If anyone is planning on entering into Iraq/Kurdistan (Northern Iraq) then I would advise against it, I work in Iraq and at the moment there is a lot of uncertainty on how safe the region is.
IS (extreme Islamic group) are pushing toward Erbil and other areas, they do have control of certain areas in Kurdistan and Iraq.
The US are continuing with bombing areas to help the Iraqi Army and Peshmerga
Its not the best area to be in at the moment

I really wished to visit Iraqi Kurdistan in June 2012 by motorcycle and I was ready to do it, but an earthquake hit the North of Italy just a few days before my departure, so I had to cancel the trip 'cause I felt I had to stay close to my girlfriend that temporarily lost her house.
I was sorry also because I knew that some parts of the world can be not safe anymore as years progress due to many events, and this is a clear case.


Anyway, my prayers are with the innocents that risk their lives due to integralism, let's hope that all of this horror will come to an end very soon.

Be safe, bro, and thanks for the update.
