So, my friends Nikola and Kristijan just got back from their little Iranian adventure. They’ve spent two weeks traveling around Iran, enjoying its sights, food, shisha, and above all – people. They loved every second of it and sware it’s one of the best places ever.
Since those are big words, I asked Nikola for some photos and little stories I could share here (photos are from Tehran, Kashan, Isfahan).
Iranians enjoy a good picnic, even if it’s on a carpet in the middle of the city (unlike this one), and many of them will ask you to join them, sit down, and have some tea and shisha, even if their english is very basic.
The traffic can be compelling, but you start to enjoy the craziness after a while.
But – they’ve warned you – cross with care, even if it’s green.
There are many beautiful mosques, of course.
And Golestan Palace is just amazing.
Some beautiful details to note.
There are so many places to lie down, have some tea, have some shisha (look at the beautiful persian rugs). It’s one big chill out zone throughout the country.
not to forget – some shiny, nonetheless – beautiful interiors.
and a guy chilling in a boat (no water anywhere)
great bazaars and tons of spices
great little villages, and countryside routes
playful children, very welcoming towards the strangers
plenty of nice buildings to enjoy.
and – they drive bikes in Iran, too.
all in all – you just love getting lost out there.
and they just might mike you feel (and look) like a king. These are my friends – Nikola and Kristijan.
P.S. Iran made them millionaires for the first time too (1EUR = 34590.58 Iranian Rials).
