Birmingham to Kashmir – by Bus

by duncanr

Birmingham (in the UK) is home to the world’s largest population of Kashmiri expats so they will be welcoming the news of a new luxury bus service between Birmingham and Mirpur in Kashmir.

Labour MP Khalid Mahmood (my local MP), whose family originate from Mirpur, said: “It’s a great idea that will bring the two cities closer together.

The plan is to run 4 coaches once a fortnight. The journey will take about 12 days, with opportunities for sightseeing, camping and restaurant visits along the way. The cost will be around £130 – (The current cost of an air ticket for the same journey is around £600) – which should make it a popular option

The only drawback is . . . one of the cities the bus will be passing through is Quetta near the Afghan border – where Taliban commanders are rumoured to be hiding out, so you might want to keep one eye on the sky for US drones heading in your direction.

Oh, and did I mention the buses will also be passing through Iran?

Just thought You might want to bear these sort of things in mind before getting on the bus
