    In August 2019 I traveled again to the Middle East to visit Lebanon. Lebanon was my port of call for my trip to Syria. Of course I wanted to be connected to the internet straight away and I looked into buying a sim card at Beirut Airport. Since that was pretty damn expensive I waited for an official store in Beirut city. My research led me to write this article about a Lebanon sim card for tourists.

    It still felt a bit strange walking up to a brand new luxurious car with a Syrian number plate in the heart of Beirut. Just a few moments before I met Mohammed, a tall and very friendly old man, patiently waiting for me in the lobby of my hotel. His smile was captivating. ‘I am your driver for your Syria trip this week’, he introduced himself with while he offered to take my small backpack. At that moment I started to realize… my trip to Syria

    had just started.
