. . WHY DO I RIDE ? . FREEDOM . The freedom to travel the unknown. Where time ceases to exist. The open road. The vessel in which transports my soul. Adventure is calling. To leave all my thoughts, cares and live in the ultimate presence. All my senses are enthralled. The wind on my skin, the pounding pavement beneath my feet, the soft aromas in my passing. As my heart races from the adrenaline rush, I know, this is my healing time. Riding is my happy place, where I forget all of my worries. Experiencing every ounce of life and the magic it has to offer. Seeing the smiles on people’s faces as you pass and connecting to everything around you. It’s a place where I am my true self. Taking me from my disenchanted reality to nirvana. When I’m on a bike, I feel like I can conquer the world. . .This is my FREEDOM, what’s yours ? . . .📸 @adeelamer #travelbeautifulpakistan

Why does she travel on a bike? She shared the response on her Instagram post. According to her:

“The freedom to travel the unknown. Where time ceases to exist. The open road. The vessel in which transports my soul. Adventure is calling. To leave all my thoughts, cares and live in the ultimate presence. All my senses are enthralled. The wind on my skin, the pounding pavement beneath my feet, the soft aromas in my passing.

Experiencing every ounce of life and the magic it has to offer. “

She isn’t just exploring places but is also interested in the diversity of culture. According to her:

“I am intrigued and excited by new cultures, ways of life, faces and stories.”

For Rosie traveling isn’t just an adventure, it’s so much more. She wrote on her Instagram:

“I’m a person who is adaptable in all situations. I love adventure, I love chaotic city streets, endless scenic mountain scapes, being around lots of new people, or embracing the quiet of being alone. Soaking in the very essence of life and all it has to offer.”

What she loves most about Pakistan? The famous hospitality:

“Pakistan is by far the most gracious care I have ever received. And it was explained to me by this Aunty that I met on the street. As I was walking down the back streets of the walled city in Lahore, I came across this lovely smelling food stall and went to have a closer look. It was then that Aunty and I met. She kindly insisted that I try the food and to join her and her granddaughter for dinner. The food was a gift she said. That I was a guest in her country and it was her honor and duty to show me grace and love. She explained to me that, in Islam, it is taught from Prophet Muhammad to love and care for one another, and to offer food to others. That it’s through her religion and faith that she is kind and hospitable to others. That being a Muslim means peace and love. After we ate, she continued to tell me her story and about her life. As I stood listening to her for some time, I held her hand. And although I didn’t know the direct translation of what she was saying in Urdu, I knew. I felt every word she said. The connection went much deeper. This is a real human connection, this is ONENESS.”
