Itinerary
Cameron and I have both been interested in a trip to Iran and now that it has recently opened up to tourism, following their years of war, we have grabbed the opportunity.
One of the most ancient civilisations in the world, however it is the people that I think are going to be the most interesting and provide the most stimulation.
We are both very excited, however are hoping Donald Trump is not going to spoil our trip, following his war games this week!
We look forward to a few challenges and some wonderful experiences.
