Mardin - May 31st to June 3rd 2017

“You should go to Mardin!” Mardin? This name didn’t ring a bell when we heard it for the first time. It was Marie-Eva who told us about it when we met her in Yazd, Iran. She was travelling with her two girlfriends and had been living in Turke…

Van - May 29th to 30th 2017

Van - May 29th to 30th 2017

Our first contact with Turkey, Van surprised us by its modernity. Bright streets full of people, most women not wearing head scarves (a strange feeling for us after Iran), modern and international shops, all surrounded by beautiful mountains….

On the road, red mountains replace verdant hills. We left Tabriz this morning, after two days in this definitely modern city. We are travelling to the Turkish border, ready to reach a new culture.

Iran was truly an incredible dis…

Kashan - May 19th to 20th 2017

Kashan - May 19th to 20th 2017

Kashan looked like a good stop on our way to Tehran from Isfahan. The old city is quite small and we expected to find the same atmosphere that we enjoyed in Yazd. We weren’t disppointed! Moreover, Kashan offers great visits of traditional hou…

Yazd - May 13th to 15th 2017

We loved the laid back atmosphere of Yazd in Iran. Wandering around the small streets of the city and discovering hidden places and beautiful mosques, we felt like going back in time.

We took the bus from Safasha…

Safashar - May 10th to 12th 2017

Safashar - May 10th to 12th 2017

Between Shiraz and Yazd, there is a small city called Safashar. We stopped there to meet Fatma. She’s an Iranian mother, entrepreneur, English teacher and Iran lover. She made us live the life of Safashar inhabitants for a few days and we lov…

Shiraz - May 6th to 9th 2017
