I have been impressed by the fact that the American citizen, Alex Reynolds (Lost With Purpose), was ready to « damage her business » for « telling the truth » in her video dated April 2019: « Why travel media is dangerous for Pakistan’s tourism ». More than one year after, I came to the conclusion this was not as simple and innocent as I initially believed. It resulted in a « splendid » but predatory marketing operation.
Pakistan is a new travel destination which offers fantastic opportunities for adventurous western young ladies wanting to boost their audience. However, their ascent can be as fast as their fall. The travel blogger Alex Reynolds is an example on how irresponsible travel media people can ruin the livelihood of mountain families, despite the warm welcome and the kind hosting they enjoyed in their home.
