‘God must have loved Afghans because he made them so beautiful.’

-Alexander the Great-


My name is Sahar Ehsas and I am a journalist currently living in England. Originally from Afghanistan, at the age of seven my family decided to move to England. We moved away from home because of the Taliban. From a very young age I’ve been inspired by my father to become a journalist and with the help of the education system in England I managed to achieve my dreams and am now working for a big media organisation.

I have managed to fulfill my dreams but this is not the end of it, now I want to work towards helping others achieve their goals, and I’m talking about the friends I have left behind in Afghanistan, the cousins, aunts and uncles and the less fortunate.

As an Afghan girl, I have very strong opinions about the rights for women in Afghanistan. The sole purpose of this blog is to create awareness of what is going on in Afghanistan. My Blog may not reach many people but I hope one day the people of Afghanistan get enough support in order to stand on their own feet, without having to rely on others. Also for women to be given the simple human rights that Afghanistan lacks.

I hope you enjoy reading my blog


with love,

Sahar Ehsas

  1. Hi! I do think Your blog is very intresting and the photos are great! I am a scientists from Poland and I am writing my PhD about state- building in Afghanistan after 2001. From Your blog I’ve known You travel to Afghanistan maybe You could recommend me some places to stay in Kabul (I will be in Kabul for one month probably in October or November 2012). Thanks in advance! Kinga rodkiewicz

    1. Hello,
      we have great places like the continental hotel (https://www.google.ca/#hl=en&sclient=psy-ab&q=continental+afghanistan&oq=continental+afgha&gs_l=hp.3.0.0i30j0i5i30l2j0i5i10i30.1773.4943.2.6299.…0.0.et9Io_MaNJc&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=aa371a1c4c8326fa&biw=1280&bih=824), as well as Serena hotel and many more places.
      But try doing more research you may find cheaper places..I can name you hunderds of tourist destination as well: Estalef, Qargha, Sayaad, and so many more!
      You just need to find a guide who is fluent in your language.
      Otherwise, Afghanistan doesnt lack anythingg..we are officially known as the Paris of Asia and have a great history in tourism.
      I have been away for the past five and a half years :((
      But good luck to you..have fun 🙂
