So I’m back from my 15 day jaunt to the Islamic Republic of Iran and it was probably one of my best trips! I think the photo above represents quite well the fun we had out there.
Before going, almost without exception, everyone I told replied with “Iran? Why are you going there? Isn’t it dangerous?”. However I’m pleased to report that the country has lots to offer and the people are some of the most friendly and hospitable I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They are keen to chat and show real interest in what you think of their country and surprisingly, happy to tell you what they think of Iran too!
I came back with over 1,000 photos which is far more than I normally would take for a two week period. So its going to take some time to sort through and process them and I plan to make a start over the weekend. I’ll also be writing a blog on the trip for the tour company I used (Explore! UK) and I’ll cross post here so you can all find out what I’ve been up to. In the meantime once my photos are up I’ll post a link to the gallery.
