Rest days give me a lot of stress, especially when I feel I’ve been unproductive, so no matter how hard I try to give myself time off I inevitably end up doing something to make up for it. By the end of one such day in New Jersey I had had a nice evening out but hadn’t really produced anything photographically, and was feeling antsy. As I returned home I noticed a very well lit car park, where two goalposts had been set up, and decided I owed it to myself to investigate further.
Iran is not the typical touristic hotspot, and within the last years – and now with the Coronavirus pandemic – it seems to have become much more difficult to discover this beautiful country.
But politics is the one hand, the other is the Iranian people. I was traveling alone three times in Iran and it was always a pleasure to meet these incredibly friendly and obliging people. I never felt unsafe or uncomfortable. You find many beautiful places of interest like the breathtaking Imam place and the amazing bridges in Isfahan, the ancient city of Shiraz or the bazaar in Kerman just to mention a few. Also Teheran is worth seeing and, of course, the northern regions with mountains as well as the Caspian sea. Well, you see, every region has some “must see“ places of interest.
