About Me


Discover, Understand, Share & Enjoy...


My name in Motahar. I am a Sociologist, Journalist and a Hichhicker From Iran.

My career was mostly focused in Journalism. Im a Co-founder and Co-manager of the "Persia Untold Stories" Project (visit our page in FaceBook). Also last year I had this opportunity to teach Sociology and Photography in a high school and that was an amazing experiences I have ever had.

Having traveled within my country and around the world for more than 11 years, mostly backpacking and hitchhiking and visiting more than 20 countries, lead me into living in&by travel.

I do travel mostly because I believe in travel. Travel makes new and different horizons in understanding and living life in ones mind and its absolute effect is disappearing limits and dark sides of mind. and once you hug your limitation you will find Travel unavoidable. Travel will become like brushing your tooth every night. You need to do it regularly and you simply can not avoid it because you did it before..! life is short, lets conceive it all and lets hug our limitations.

So, if you like to conceive moments full of feelings and understanding,
if you like to disappear your limitations,
or simply, if you like to have fun in new inexperienced horizons of life,
if you like to have nice chat drink coffee in one afternoon and talk about our dreams our happiness..

or as my friend Mirna just put in:

“If you would like to have some fun together or flirting
or if you would like some massage
or if you're not interested about those but you're interesting to go to mountain and mountaineering..."

Lets travel together


Travel in knowledge and travel in Worlds...
do you know that story of Jacob in bible, when he was lame in his hip? Well thats me..!!
