Rosie Gabrielle Moved To Gilgit Baltistan. As per the post shared on her Instagram Handle, The long-anticipated wait is over! We are happy to share and announce that we have officially shifted to the north of Pakistan 🇵🇰
Neither of us is city people or “fit in” with societal “norms” and the system. We long for wide-open spaces, fresh air, peace, simple life, nature, and ADVENTURE!
THE MOUNTAINS WERE CALLING
Although it was necessary for the time to be based in the city, we couldn’t wait to get out of there. After 10 long months living in Lahore, we finally made the move and shifted our entire life up here- indefinitely.
IT WAS A BIG MOVE!
With travel restrictions still in force around the globe making getting around too complicated, we decided to stay put for a while here in Pk. But that meant moving somewhere we both could thrive a bit better.
Looking to take the stressful pressures off ourselves, focusing more on being present, being in nature, having an adventure at our fingertips, and generally living a more simple life, this is the PERFECT place to be.
