Are you travelling to Iran? Are you crazy? Why are you willing to go there? Inevitable questions when you tell someone Iran is your next destination. Obviously I had no clue either about what to expect as you only read the negative stories about this country in the news. Before my trip I always answered with: ‘I haven’t been there yet and I read some cool travels blogs full of historical sights, cool architecture and generous people, so why not!’.
Arriving in Tehran started with a horrific taxi ride from the international airport to the city center. I was offered a pick-up from the hostel in Tehran and looking back I was glad I paid the €25. I have seen bad traffic, lack of respect and crazy things happening on the road throughout Asia, but Iran will definitely end up high in a list of insane traffic around the world.
