Today marks the 8 year anniversary of this blog and fittingly, this morning I woke up in one of the most amazing places I have seen so far in my travels. As I mentioned in my previous post, our Dubai to Romania trip has started in earnest last Thursday and we’ve already been in Iran now for 4 days. Although it’s a short amount of time, we’ve seen quite a bit so far (lots of detailed stories on the road trip blog), but the highlight until now for me have been The Kaluts. These desert rock formations in the South-Eastern part of Iran are huge (easily 30 meters, but probably a lot more) and breathtaking to look at. This is also the place with the highest recorded temperature in the world and yesterday when we arrived it didn’t disappoint – the thermometer showed 64 degrees Celsius (the actual temperature was probably around 55 or so).
To finish this post, I would really like to thank all of you who keep coming back to my blog, because in a way (a big way!) a lot of what I do nowadays was built on this blog.
