Some time ago I traveled around in Iran with friends. It’s about time to write something about the journey and maybe inspire someone to visit this secluded country.

I have been subscribing to Swedish travel magazine Vagabond for more than a decade and Johan Tell used to be one of my favorite regular writers. He often wrote in a funny way, describing hilarious issues on the road. I met him once but was disappointed since he was quite different in real life. In fact, I wouldn’t have guessed he was the same person as the author in a million years. But the writing is however quite entertaining.
So here I am in Yazd, an ancient desert city in Iran. I arrived a few days ago coming by bus from Esfahan, a magnificent modern city. The contrast is enormous, since the old town of Yazd mostly consists of sun dried mud bricks. But I must confess that the ice cream I found today was the best so far in Iran, while Esfahan had the best coffee.
After arriving in Tehran a few days back I discovered that Facebook, Twitter and other fun sites are thoroughly blocked, just as suspected. So I had a coffee and took the next flight to Shiraz, the lovely city in the south of Iran, on a holy quest to find the perfect kebab.
