Bojnurd, Iran - Polarsteps
Still a bit nervous but we did it! We entered Iran without problems! Out of Ashgabat was a bit complicated, everywhere police who denied us to take the roads out of the city. Probably the president had to do a round through the city. In the end we could follow a police car and had a private escort on empty roads out of the city to the border 😆
We check in at Mohsen's homestay, who also took initiative to start the Overland in Iran FB page which has been very useful to us. He's a relaxed guy who has nice stories to tell and is very open about all issues in Iran and his personal life. We stay two days and cook dinner for him while we have some interesting chats.
