Years back I came across a page on social media titled, "Humans of Tehran," I was captivated by the stories of the people featured on that page and that's when my fascination with Iran begun.
I remember mentioning in passing to a friend that I would love to visit Iran but at the time it just seemed like such an out of reach feat. Prior to the pandemic I had started looking into traveling to Iran but the requirements just seemed overwhelming to me and I gave up. I didn't feel like dealing with the hustle.
After my trip to Lebanon in March of this year, I made up my mind to travel to Iran come what may. This time I was ready to be patient and follow through with all the requirements. I did some research and once I identified the classic route that most first time visitors take in order to get a good introduction to the country, I was ready to start planning.
