My Awesome Trip to Iran – By Angelie
Comments: 8
In September, my family and I went to Iran for two weeks.  I really enjoyed it even though it was very hot! This is a blog post about my awesome experience in Iran. The Persian people are very warm and friendly. For instance, it didn’t take a long time to get to know our guide, Sahar, and we started a conversation in less than 10 minutes. Many people came up to us to say ‘hello’ and ‘welcome’ while we were out visiting. Read more!

Comments: 0
After our initial city breaks in London and Paris, we drove all the way to Le Conquet and Pointe de Saint-Mathieu, the most western point in France, in Finistère, Brittany. This marked effectively the beginning of our road trip – the furthest point away from our eventual destination. Every day of travel from here on in will bring us one step closer. Read more!
