    This week, I traveled to the beautiful country of Iraq. All my life I'd heard of the war in Iraq and how dangerous it was to visit, but I wanted to go there and explore if for myself to hear the stories that didn't make it into the media. So, along with Drew Binsky, Lexie Alford and Cory Martin, we were taken around Iraqi Kurdistan by our amazing guide, Baderkhan.
    Thank you to Lexie Limitless for joining us on this crazy adventure:

      It's amazing to see Iraq from a point of view we never get to see otherwise 🥰 Thank you for sharing this experience with us ☺️

    13. Korkee Konrad

    15. dan moore

      Badherkhan.... what a beautiful example of man

    16. Rozhin Sabir


    17. Benjamin D

      The Iraqi Christians people are called Assyrian and Chaldean. They are not Arab or Kurdish. The world needs to know the truth. Don’t believe when they say Christian that they are talking about Kurds or Arabs. Please people do some more research.

    18. Pascal Konzack

      I love this mans laugh. You know it's not staged!

    23. Elicia Eldridge

      It does feel strange that there aren't many women around hopefully this can also change in the next generation.

    24. XXXxxxXXX

      This video made me very emotional. I was born in Iraqi Kurdistan and escaped because of the war. I've never seen my homeland until now. Thank you!!

    25. Paul Seij

      Long live Kurdistan

    30. Dylan Chiarello

      After watching this, i can see how ungrateful people here in the U.S are... this really changes my mindset on the world, they have so little and have been through so much yet they laugh and make the best of it, coming from me someone who lives in Miami there’s people upset they don’t have a Mercedes... it just shows you how you really don’t need anything in this world but family, love and a different perspective to be happy! I’m very moved by this!

    31. MIchael B

      What a masterpiece! Thank you for sharing this!

    32. Official Toxins

      Baderkhan stole the show with his great personality

    33. KURDISTAN [NS]

      My lovely brother we are not iraq we are kurdistan i agree with you that we are not country but the day we come and we will be country

    34. duro says hi

      Looks Awsome there ! My dad is currently deployed there in the war he tells me the candy and foods are Awsome there but it’s still super dangerous because his base got attacked, but he’s fine .And that’s why it’s never safe in country’s like that .

    35. Ro plays

      We're going to go to kurdistan during summer I can't wait to see family there that we haven't seen for 6 years crazy🤯🤯

      Hay Guy, that is not Iraq. Only part of Iraq, it means only north part Iraq. So, come to central Iraq where is Baghdad. Welcome, I am in Karbala, my nationality is Korean.

    39. matin lurkurd

    41. Kaushik B

      In india we say "if you laugh too much u will cry later". It's like maintaining a perfect balance as all things should be

    42. Up Syndrome Dog

      Brilliant vid I love all your videos

    43. WindsorEssexrocks

      Though I’ve been slowly exploring all the yes theory adventures, this vid was the one I shared with several friends and family members. Exploring places no one was allowed into through the connections of your guide, Baderkahn and his contagious laugh, it just needed to be shared. Got an ad to seek discomfort merch and was browsing the site when Lexi expressed the difference between male and female travellers. I couldn’t clap loud enough and I’m glad she raised your awareness. I wish I could have gone the places I wanted when I first lived in Europe but I was too scared. She’s inspirational thank you for sharing. Lookin forward to my merch! 😻

    44. Ondřej Zelený

      Its ironic how the stereotypes tend to fill our heads what a butthole of a world these countries are (Iraq, Afghanistan), but holy moly, people who life there are the most beautiful, friendly people i have ever seen. I live in central Europe and people in here are so disconnected.

    45. Ahmed Bassem

      This is only part of Iraq, you haven't seen all of Iraq.

      1. Ahmed Bassem

    52. lana mohamad

      I’m Kurdish and I’ve always felt quite disconnected from my heritage and culture growing up in England and this was so amazing to watch thank you

    55. Janica Florentino

      This is a very wide eye opening for everyone. We are all people, even if we don't have same religious beliefs but we all have our own God. We all deserve to be loved. "Changing one mindset, even if slow progress. One will call me tourist and not terrorist'" I was really touched by this. Thank you so much Yes Theory!

    56. Ni Bic

      Amazing amazing video!!! Fully enjoyed it!!! Greetings from Ireland 🇮🇪 I am fascinated with the Middle East and hope to travel there soon ☺️

      such a beautiful country with beautiful people and unbelievable history and culture but so much of violence and hatred. It's really sad.

    64. Wedge Antilles

      Start a company making prefabricated concrete walls. Then get some D9 dozers clear the area and start to build and teach.

    67. Katrina

      Its Kurdistan❤️☀️💚 not Iraq

      1. Swiss

        @Katrina I'm just saying the he's gonna call it Iraqi Kurdistan because it's formally known as Iraqi Kurdistan. When you guys get your independence, people will call it Kurdistan.

      2. Katrina

        @Swiss You dont get my point you're probably not even kurdish. You would look at it differently considering we've been fighting for our independence so yeah maybe its iraqi Kurdistan to you and whoever agrees with you but it will always be Kurdistan for me and whoever agrees with me. Thanks for the information i knew already but did not need 🤦‍♀️

      3. Swiss

        @Katrina it's formally recognized as Iraqi Kurdistan and is still in Iraq. For it to be recognized as Kurdistan, you guys need to get independence.

      4. Katrina

        @Swiss Its Kurdistan not Iraq

      5. Swiss

        He's gonna call it what the UN calls it.

    76. Naveed Iqbal

      This is just pure love.Mankind has been cruel to their own but it’s the act of a few that make us all believe that despite the darkness ,the people of Iraq have still so much to offer,so much culture so much history .Wish the world was borderless and we can roam free ...

    95. TrappingAlong

      I was for four weeks in Northern Iraq on business in 2004, in Sulaymaniyah to be precise. I found nothing than friendly and tolerant people, who wan't to work, have a family and live in peace. I wish I can go back there as a tourist on day.
