A WHOLE NEW WORLD
STORY AND PHOTOGRAPHY
DESIGNER / APRILPOOLDAY’S CO-FOUNDER
Iran is one of my favourite destinations because it is a lesser known country among travellers, so everything is still natural, authentic and not superficial. Being a rather closed country, it does not have much influence from other countries, so its long-standing culture is evident, mysterious and captivating, from its religion-inspired architecture to houses constructed from clay to keep the people cool and comfortable in their homes. Its deserts are filled with wonderful stories, while its handwoven rugs tell the history of nomads. The experiences here are unlike anywhere else in the world.
