About the Author
Tim Blight fell in love with Pakistan on its first visit in 2006. Since then it has been a roller-coaster ride of perilous mountain roads, getting caught up in religious processions in crowded streets, learning a lesson about the effects of eating spicy street food, standing awestruck by beautiful architecture and meeting more than a few friends for life. Since his first visit, Tim has visited Pakistan ten times, criss-crossing the country and visiting almost every (accessible) corner of the land. He is the author of Pakistan Traveller, a project of his website UrbanDuniya. He has also authored Recipes for Ramadan, a collection of recipes from around the world, and contributed to an eBook about Creative Urbanism in Melbourne, authored by Agness Walewinder of eTramping.com.
