I know ultimately it is our call but I would just like to hear the views of people on the ground there. I am scheduled to visit Pakistan again in November 2014 travelling up as far North as Mansehra and Abbotabad. This time my partner wants to come with me, she is white and blond ! I know that there are not many westerners in that area and that alone will attract harmless attention but I just wondered if there is a risk it could also be unsafe for her and perhaps it may be wiser to stay home. As I say I appreciate it is our call but thoughts from on the ground would be helpful.
