My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

Iran Day 09: Tehran - Zanjan - Tabriz

"Everyone who is in your life is meant to be a part of that journey, but not all of them are meant to stay..."

Day 09: Tuesday, 15 Mar 2016
Route: Tehran – Zanjan – Tabriz
Distance: 635 km
Hotel: Pars Eligolo Hotel, Tabriz

It was raining heavily when we started our journey north towards Tabriz. The distance from Tehran to Tabriz is 635 km and the journey was quite monotonous.

On the way to Tabriz we stopped at the town of Zanjan for lunch and performed our prayers at one of the mosques in town.

About an hour or two drive before entering the town of Tabriz we passed through some beautiful coloured mountains along the highway. Very little settlements were seen around the colourful landscape.

(Beautiful unique scenery)

We arrived at Pars Eligolo Hotel in Tabriz early and had our buffet dinner at the hotel restaurant. It was snowing lightly and it was very windy and chilly.
