Hello! It’s time for another ‘Through My Lens’ where I select some of my photos from a particular place I visited and turn them into a post! Today I am reminiscing about my time in Iran, back in 2004. It’s hard to believe that it’s twelve years ago now! I crossed the border from Pakistan (it was part of my overland route from Bangladesh to Europe) and made my way to Kerman, Then to Yazd, and amazing city, much of it mudbrick with brilliant passageways. I took a day trip to a village, a desert and amazing Zoroastrian temple. Then to Shiraz – on the way there I met Charlie, a traveller from my home town of Melbourne whom I shared a room with in Shiraz. We visited the ancient ruins of Persepolis together before I headed on to Esfahan, Tehran and Tabriz. From Tabriz I made a day trip to the nearby town of Kandovan famed for its spring water and houses in the cliff hollowed out by volcanic flow centuries ago.
From Tabriz it was on to Turkey. But Iran remains with me forever as the most amazing, warm, incredible place I think I have ever visited. I do hope you enjoy seeing it through my lens!
Thanks for stopping by today! Take care – and May the Journey Never End!
