There is another world out there

26 Articles in this collection

There are places around the globe that you hardly ever read of and rarely hear people talking about or if you do it’s because of negative press or controversial issues – not exactly the holiday destination most people think of. Be it for their remoteness, their apparently insignificant size, their notorious history, their political regime, extreme levels of poverty or peculiar culture, these are not the kind of places on people’s traditional bucket lists.

Yet there is a reason to seek them out and reveal the shining gems many of these remote corners of the world hide. Be it spectacular landscapes, awe-inspiring culture or unique lifestyle; these kinds of destinations promise the most eye-opening, unforgettable experiences one could ever imagine and they deserve to be discovered whilst still largely unknown to the throngs of tourists.

This is precisely what the travellers writing in this section of our post endeavour to do; to go out of their comfort zone and explore areas of the world that are little developed yet boast extreme levels of raw beauty and unique attractions found nowhere else on the planet. Find your inspiration for the remote and beautiful here.

Iran part III - On my own, the final frontier

The most thrilling part of my unforgettable Iran journey was perhaps the last stretch when I ventured on my own, ready to immerse deeper into its culture and customs. For six weeks I journeyed along traditional villages, vast stretches of undulating desert, jaw-dropping mountainous landscapes and urban hubs, observing societal roles, joining family parties and generally blending in with the crowd. It was the most unforgettable experience! One that made Iran my new favourite country ever!

Iran part II - A road trip

The second part of my eye-opening journey through Iran took me beyond the capital to the barely trodden, yet fascinating sights of Qom, the conservative city of Kashan with its traditional houses, the pretty rural beauty of Abyaneh and the amazing ancient metropolises of Parsagadae, Naqsh-e-Rostam and Persepolis. To round it all up I also stopped by Shiraz, the land of poets and came across the mountain nomads of Firuz Abad. Read on to find out about all the adventures that awaited me.
