The middle Eastern country of Iran is misinterpreted by many. Western media portrays this nation as a location full of nuclear weapons, a sinister ruler as well as women dressed from head to toe in black. just like every country, Iran isn’t without its faults. However, any type of misconceptions we may have had were totally shattered the minute we crossed the border from Turkmenistan, into Iran.
We made the decision to travel to Iran to discover about the interesting history as well as culture, satisfy the regional people as well as feast on a cuisine made with intriguing spices as well as ingredients….a decision we’ll never regret!

Iranian cuisine isn’t extremely prominent in the west, which is a shame! The different flavours as well as spices integrate to make unique, must-try meals. Stews as well as grilled meats are typical for primary dishes, while both fresh & dried fruits, nuts as well as pastries are commonly eaten as snacks. Street-food is typical as well, with some tasty bites on offer.

İran, ziyaret edeceğinize hiç inanmadığınız bir ülke olabilir. Bir aydan fazla bir süredir burada sırt çantasıyla, dürüstçe bunun bir gezginin rüya varış noktası olduğunu, son derece tavsiye ettiğimiz olduğunu söyleyebiliriz! Birçok insan siyasi nedenlerden dolayı bu uzak toprakları bulmaktan korkuyor ya da (bazen) uzun süreli vize sürecinden rahatsız edilemezler, yani ülkeyi neredeyse kendinize alacaksınız.
Not: Şubat 2014 itibariyle, Kanada ve İngiliz pasaport sahipleri Amerikalıların saflarına katıldı ve şimdi İran’da kaldıkları süre boyunca bir rehberle birlikte gitmeleri gerekiyor. Üzgünüm beyler! Talihsiz haberler…
Abartılı ulaşım ve konaklama, tarihi yerler, doğal harikalar, inanılmaz insanlar ve lezzetli mutfaklar ile… Neden gitmiyorsunuz?
İran’a seyahat etme konusunda neye inanıyorsunuz? Bunun risksiz bir yer olduğuna inanıyor musunuz? bize göster!
