Overland Adventure - Iran to Isle Of Man

Tripoto
1st Jul 2016

Last year i embarked on a 90 days journey which changed everything in my life.How i perceived about this world,How i imagined real happiness would be,How similar humans are beyond borders and many more questions which you never bother to ask yourself while being stuck in the life cycle of making money.I hate being philosophical but this is something which happens inevitably to you while you do something crazy like this.

Here are some memories from the road.

Iran - Friendliest country ever.

Croatia - With a long coastline in Adriatic sea,this eastern European country holds much more places to admire and exlpore.My favorite part was Dubrovnik,where game of thrones was filmed.Taking the Game of thrones tour is a must while you are here.
