“It was always my dream (to travel to Saudi Arabia on a motorbike) and it came true this year,” Hassan said during a video interview with a foreign news outlet. “There are probably some feelings you can’t describe in words … So, everything has been surreal for me, and I absolutely loved every single moment of it.”

Hassan embarked on this expedition to the holy city on February 9 this year, from his home town Nankana Sahib in Punjab, and completed the 50-days journey on a motorbike, with his arrival in Madinah on March 27. He crossed three continents during the adventurous trip.

“It was an amazing experience to cross multiple borders and meet so many people along the way,” said Hassan, highlighting the ‘special blessing’ was to arrive in Madinah a few days before Ramadan and “keep the first fast of the year there.”

About his experience, Hassan said, “The support and love I am receiving right now is just incredible.”

He recalled a memorable interaction with a woman tea-seller, and said, “When they came to know that I was traveling on a motorcycle from Pakistan to perform Umrah, they didn’t take any money from me and said, ‘you are our guest’.”

Hassan also stated that the ‘warm welcome’ and ‘love’ from the people of the Kingdom has compelled the adventurer to extend his stay in the country.
