I know it’s late for this.
But thank you very very much for all the nice things you said about Iran and Iranians.

You’ve made me so proud.

Grandma, thank you very much, too.

Good luck

Fear of the unknown has a way of playing tricks with one’s mind and expectations. And the themes of this flight – being welcomed, hospitality and kindness – kept with us throughout our Iran trip.

@John: Thanks so much for coming over here from Amanda’s great site and commenting! We’ll continue to write about Iran over the next weeks. Hope you enjoy hearing about the rest of the trip!

Really loved your story of arriving in Iran. I look forward to reading more!

Its great to read a first-hand experience of someone who has travelled there. And it not turning out as you expected! My trip to Dubai this year was all I expected and a bit onto that. All in all, very adventurous to head to Iran.

@Mark: You are so right – good people are everywhere, even in places that we think of as dark and dangerous because of media attention. Most Iranians we talked to made a big point to differentiate between the government and themselves. Unfortunately, most people didn’t seem very optimistic that their government and Supreme Council would change anytime soon.

@Zablon: The daunting bit is the unknown. Once we got on the plane and on the ground in Iran, the fear disappeared.

@Kiran: Travel is one of the best ways to break down stereotypes and assumptions. So important.

@LivingIf: Here’s to Asian grandmas and how they take care of us all! Keep checking back – we’ll be posting more on Iran this next month.

@Milad: I can definitely imagine how you miss Iran. Hope you have a chance to visit sometime soon!

@Thrill Seeker: Glad to hear we’ve woken up the travel bug in you. Where will be your next adventure?

@WanderMom: Still have so much to process from the trip! Keep checking back in the next month for more installments.

Iran is great I really miss it and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it. It’s been 12 years now since I left Iran at the age of 8 and want to go back so much. :'(
