Souls are like conscripted soldiers whichever souls knew each other (in that world) are attracted towards each other (in this world). This undeniable and everlasting truth ratifies itself once again in the story of young men from the cave. Brave souls, forsaking all pleasures of unjust life, with sheer determination of abandoning corrupt ways and wrongful patterns of their society. Whether the souls had met before, or were brought together by a different medium the result is the same; the importance lays in their primordial connection and understanding. This very notion is what Khidr travel is all about. Join our speleological and soul coupling adventure and allow us to fill your hearth with new perception and impart in it a genuine happiness.
