Many of us have experienced cold winters traveling to other areas of Pakistan and abroad. Yet, we are not aboard the right sense of what makes winter really winter. Certainly, we all are keen to wear hoodies, enjoy the particular seasonal sensations, not to forget the marvelous cuisine.
A contemporary winter typically brings many things to enjoy. However, there are certain things that you can only enjoy if you live in the area where the real occurrence of winter happens.
Glad to say our country is ample of areas to host you in winter, offering a proper experience. Karachiites do not certainly nab such a weather and are likely to travel around places. One such place where Karachiites largely end up is Islamabad.
So, let’s check out what really happens when a Karachiite visits Islamabad during winter:
1. You are the only one who has layers of layers of clothing.
2. You kept underestimating the weather and come to regret once you experience it for real.
3. You are the only creature in the land of strangers to react to the weather.
4. You always have that one person around who is always scare mongering. They always say, “ab pata chalega tumhay, beta.“
5. You are the only one reacting to routinely fog.
6. You are excited about marvelous reasons to enjoy your stay in winter in Islamabad but you are scared to death to once you step out of the house.
