Iran, travel

Little Iranian adventures – Tehran, Kashan, Isfahan.

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).

Let’s start!
