About Me


We want to meet people, share good moments, discover the world, Showing the beauty of Iran to travellers and raising our kid as an adventurer.


We are a family of three (Abbas, Zahra & our baby girl Ava). Ava born on 26th Jan 2015. She is a cute & friendly baby, talk to her & in 20 seconds she'll smile at you.
Traveling is the joy of our life and we've traveled all around of Iran then to the other countries. We are nature lovers, Abbas love to take photos while Zahra loves to rest in nature, about Ava, we need to wait till she can speak and tell us what she likes the most.
we've shared our experiences and some pictures of traveling around Iran in Abbas's Facebook page:

If we got any chance to travel (even 1 day) we wouldn't loose it. Ava (our baby girl) experienced her fist camping travel when she was only three months old.
We've learnt many thing from our hosts about traveling even with kids and we want to continue discovering different people and cultures with our kid.
We like living in old fashion style when people cared for their own traditions, respect elders, take life easy.
Although we like the ideas of minimalist, raising kid in Montessori way & etc.


Life is a journey, Enjoy it, Do Not Stop

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Watching life in silence : sunset on the sea, raising of clouds over mountain, a plant in the middle of desert, a mother who plays with her baby, ......

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: We just can say no matter how much we know, there are still more to know. So, it's better to say we love to share what we learned.

Learn: In Iran we have an Idiom that say : Every Head Has Another Thought. So when you come to our home let us know about anything you love to share. We like to learn.

Share: All the things we know and learned from our society. We like answer any of your questions about iranian lifestyle.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Helping them for getting iranian (if they need) and give them some tips about their travel plan in Iran.
We will cook for them traditional Iranian food (vegetarian and non vegetarian)
A gift (usually an iranian handcraft) just to remember us.
And finally our honestly neverending friendship.
