Iran Road Tour: Tehran to Mashhad via the Caspian Coast

A November two-week road trip in Iran’s countryside, from the capital Tehran to our home in Mashhad in northeast Iran, through the Caspian Sea region. It included chasing Mt. Damavand, staying in rural ecolodges and village homes, eating plenty of traditional food and meeting many memorable hosts. Another reminder that you have to escape Tehran to find the real Iran in smaller towns and rural areas.
