ROAD TRIP MIDDLE EAST: Iran (Part 3 – Yazd, Isfahan)

Published by Darron Toy on

[Laughter] [Music] so my journey continues through Iran if you miss part 1 & 2 I began this adventure in Dubai and I’m travelling all the way back to Europe via Iran in Turkey sometimes alone and other times with an Italian physicist this episode I will leave the poetic city of Shiraz and drive to a mud-brick village near yost before venturing north to the famously beautiful city of Isfahan okay next part of a journey traveling by car old-school 80s car so you remember how I said the physicist was in Bandar Abbas he caught an overnight ferry across the Strait of Hormuz with the second-hand Porsche he bought with Bitcoin in Abu Dhabi but from there things didn’t exactly go to plan this whole thing is turning into a nightmare basically well obviously the canary passaging know completely ago they want three times the value of the vehicles the security deposit the vehicles by 100,000 euros according to them so that’s totally but said he’s been amazing he was helped at the port by a wonderful woman named Sethi his kind local herd through a friend of a friend months ago that an Italian was trying to do a road trip through Iran and she emailed him offering to help with any translation just purely because she was so happy to help foreigners who wanted to visit her country of Iran so he ended up leaving the Porsche locked up in customs and getting a taxi five hours to meet me up in Shiraz on the way the taxi driver picked up this little old woman who he still doesn’t know exactly what she was doing or where she was going we still had to pick up the Porsche later on in the journey but seeing as we couldn’t drive it at this period we just found the cheapest car we could find to rent from Shiraz minus five maybe six hours – used in the car journey we gazed in awe at the landscape and marveled at how well maintained the roads were much better than initially for sure we listened to audio books on the fascinating history of the Persian Empire and also a recording of the iconic tale Arabian Nights or as it is sometimes known 1001 nights in the chronicles of the ancient dynasty of mrs. Hannah died for about 400 years from Persia to the borders of China beyond the great river Ganges itself as the king sire answered the Grand Vizier it is most dangerous for a monarch to confide in a man whose faithfulness is not proved and then other times we sang [Music] [Music] [Music] again [Music] [Music] you know a chumpy on the weightiest we stopped to explore the Magnificent ruins of Persepolis that date back as early as 515 PC there’s nothing for miles around making it easy to stand among the ancient debris and conjure images of Alexander the Great arriving over the mountains with his army setting fire to this ceremonial capital out of revenge for a fire to the Acropolis I wanted to visit the yazd province because I found a charming homestay in a mud brick village called Taft [Music] after a home-cooked meal and chatting with other travelers I climbed into bed exhausted but cozy in my little cave room [Music] I work the next morning to a breakfast in the garden where I spoke with a 73 year old French woman who had been traveling the Middle East alone for a year she had so many stories to tell but she was too shy to be on camera I chose to visit the Asda because it was a Zoroastrian Center during the time of the Sassanid Empire Zoroastrianism is arguably the oldest religion still practiced today older than Islam Christianity or Judaism although it’s an ancient faith I found their beliefs decidedly modern Zoroastrianism centers around the phrase could thoughts good words good deeds they advocate free will and believe in spiritual equality for males and females they believe charity to others is a way to spread happiness and nourish one’s soul and that doing good is not to get some sort of reward but just because it’s a better way to live it is also an ecological religion respecting and protecting nature there are around 25,000 zoroastrians in Iran today and many others in other parts of the world too while the physicists went off to buy carpet in the bazaar I was filming the square in yazd and I met this sweet girl and her mother who gave me such a warm smile and asked if they could talk to me she’s my mother mother okay yes yes I love you I’m Virginia Oh your English is so good you study yeah I wrote English math yeah you’re in every time you what you doing and yes I go together and yes I get to watch it with my mother yes buy something you have at all yeah I read a nothing I guess you about what about and about to you for a lunch okay you you read in English or in Farsi yes yes sometimes wow you’re very good she’s very good beautiful I have to take photos and it’s I’m so happy so happy to be in there I see you you’re so sweet thank you very much and yeah I thank you for for allowing us to visit your beautiful country thank you thank you thank you very nice never seeing when we went into this restaurant and walked past a table where three men were dining they noticed me looking at their dishes with curiosity and immediately offered me the whole plate to eat and this would happen everywhere I went in Iran generosity of a level you can’t imagine I realize Iran has a lot of problems a lot of injustice and probably the reason it’s easier for me to find positive experiences is because I am a tourist I am female I am white there’s a lot of a lot of freedom but I guess what I wanted to point out is so many people in the world believe that Iranians hate Americans and one look at me being blonde speaking English they could easily assume that I am an American and and yet they they still treat me with with kindness so I don’t know it’s just something to think about back on the road and our rental per show with no air-conditioning we set off the Isfahan a city that was listed by the British Telegraph is among the top most beautiful cities in the world alongside Rome Rio and New York Isfahan is an elegant cultured City perhaps the most popular among tourists in Iran for its architectural wonders like the spectacular lotfullah mosque built during the Safavid Empire and one of my favourite mosques in the whole of Iran as the famous British traveller Robert Byron wrote in the 1930s his van is among those rare places like Athens or Rome which are the common refreshment of humanity what I noticed was how well the city is set up for being social in nature so many families out having picnics peacefully in the parks along the river and even in the main square a lot of tourists squares these days a devoid of local life but not is fun it’s like traveller used to be with a healthy balance between locals and tourists what is your name Kiley nice to meet you you are from is fun what do you think when you see foreigners come to to your city it’s interesting because well I feel like it oh wow it’s so nice yeah yeah it’s nice that we are far too is coming to Iran because yeah very good very good feelings yeah it’s like you have a big hole and then people are coming inside it means that there are like feeling welcome you know what I mean yeah it’s because such a rich country historically culturally and the people are nice and it’s safe yes why not also we like to interact with them yes discover the locals as well so it’s like a win-win actually I don’t know what you thought what people hear about Iran also outside of Iran but I think they are not sure you know the security and things like that yes safety is a big issue chai and for this reason especially because of the political problems many people they are definitely don’t want to come here it feels so nice to just meet a total stranger who is coming up to me and I’ll say and telling me welcome you know it’s a beautiful thing [Music] Kylie Kylie I really okay I found a local family renting two rooms in their house we joined another German couple traveling with their two daughters for a home-cooked meal and hospitality that honestly felt like I just walked into the home of my own grandparents [Music] I’m very impressed by your English and and your your curiosity because you you’re so interested in the food and the culture and I want to know what you think of Iran first I want the people are very nice happy and you and your traveling with your sister over there yes and and your mother and father no yep the older couple spoke no English at all but we were joined by their son Amir also a physicist and a professor at a local university I have been totally impressed by your family they’re so cute they’re kindness I mean even your parents they do they sit at the table and they don’t follow everything but there they seem so so happy to have total strangers in their home and and share their their food and their everything with them I think it’s part of our culture and especially the culture of these funny people who like guests and when they’re from other countries they want to show how Iranian people are nice and peaceful despite the image which is I think very distorted that we have outside from the outside we’ll get from the media that Iranians are Pro terrorism they want like war but I guess it’s the opposite and we are peaceful we’ve been peaceful in the whole history and we want to make peace with the whole world and part of our culture and we like guests we want to interact with people in a way that is fair to both sides and I guess tourism and showing other people from other countries that we are we are not in the way that pictured by the media is the best way to try to change this distorted picture yeah and I’ve only seen a little bit of your city of Isfahan that do you what is what is their life like here for you and your wife and your if that’s it’s a very enjoyable city and very diverse culture it’s been culturally diverse in versified in terms of having different ethnicities and different groups of people so in I think in Safavid periods which has which was around 400 years ago we had immigrated from Armenian people from other countries and his van was used to be capital and it was very big and Iran comparable to London at that time yeah so we had many tourists coming in the 17th and 18th century visiting his farm which was a capital of Iran at that period and this time of the year during April I think they call it the heaven of Isfahan which is as long neck’s heaven every tree we’ve got many threes and parts in terms of environments and green environment it’s very good and a very very good City yeah and and so you you’ve spent time studying in abroad in the UK yes and and so I guess you have that perspective of you know life outside of Iran you have a more of a global view what what how did it reframe things for you when you came back from the UK I mean at the beginning it was very good because of our interactions with the world was very good but no because of the political situations and I guess the American forever I mean the Trump administration’s and many many influence of Israel now we are getting isolated but I think it’s not gonna last long I hope it’s not going to last long and I come back to the main situation that we have be aware we want to be peaceful and have a good relations with the world and that’s the are our aim and I go and we do our best to make it that that go happen sure yeah I mean apart from the hijab part I think women are free and are much respected and so so women are very interactive in our society and they have different positions they go to universities they studies and they have like major key jobs in in our society so I think that the problem is sometimes we are misidentified with other groups or ethnicities that don’t respect women are very harsh on women and that’s the one problem and that as you said well we are religious but not very very religious or try to be and make very prejudice about our religion but her job is according to our Lauder they should respect the law but apart from that one pretty much women’s are free yeah of course there are some mistreatment and I think there in every society but yeah like being a mother and being wife and given to women is very very important and families who have like girl they’re very happy and sometimes they prefer girls or boys yes that that’s the opposite way that people used to think from outside they yeah I mean I see even little details like last night your father is helping your mother with the washing up penetrate it doesn’t feel like somewhere where a woman will feel threatened or will be disrespected I mean now please note I said it doesn’t feel like there is an oppressive atmosphere this is just me speaking about my trip I don’t know what it’s like to live there as a local woman you guys left hundreds of comments on my last around video and I’m learning from Iranians who share their opinions and educate me about the spectrum of justice because it is a spectrum in any country some people feel very strongly that mentally unstable individuals shouldn’t be able to buy a gun and go into schools and shopping malls and shoot hundreds of children that ran but the same people will still travel to beautiful cities in America even though they may disagree with the law that allows anyone to buy a gun I love Americans and yet I don’t love that law I love Iranians and yet I can understand how the law of the hijab feels oppressive can’t we love the people and separate them from the laws which they may or may not even agree with themselves [Music] so many highly highly educated and culturally sophisticated young people here in Iran I mean your work at the University obviously and what are you seeing what is the sentiment among young people I mean they curious about the outside and they proud of their own culture how is it oh yeah there but both of them at the same time they are proud of their culture because they know we have a long history back in the background but they want to know other cultures as well and because of the internet I think they are very familiar Instagram and our many social networks they are member of and they are curious and Explorer and browse into them they know many much about politics everything that’s going on in the world but many unfortunately they’re not happy about the way that for example American government treated us and have good sanctions and that would affect our economy sure well thank you your your your family is a wonderful example of just how generous and and warm this this culture is and so yeah thank you for having us in your home thank you thank you thank you for all the support on the last episode in Iran if you are enjoying this video please give it a thumbs up because it helps my work be seen by more people it’s very hard to make this kind of work all alone for free so if you would like to donate to my channel you can go to evelle please remember I’m documenting my personal experience as a tourist I’m not paid I’m not working for any news company or the Tourism Board it’s impossible for me to show you the full spectrum of life here I can only show you what I experienced and that is limited by me being a tourist if my experience differs from yours that doesn’t mean I’m a liar it doesn’t mean you’re a liar everyone’s story is valid we can both be right yes there is injustice in Iran but there are also highly educated kind peaceful people these two realities can both be true was crouching behind a tree filming this gentleman on a bicycle he noticed that I had a camera pointed at him and actually slowed down got off his bicycle and stood happily smiling at me so I could take the shot who does that Iranians do then without us ever exchanging a word he got back on his bicycle and continued on his way if I had been harassed by the police or treated unfairly as a woman on my trip in Iran I would share it with you here but that was not my experience it doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen it just didn’t happen to me what did happen to me was that I found myself welcomed by a sweet and gentle family where the husband is alongside his wife supporting her and their son is informed about global affairs and yet with pride in his country in openness to foreigners I found myself under a bridge in Isfahan where locals sing spontaneously as the Sun sets later I asked me or what the words to this song meant yada yada I am hail the scent of the river and this brings the memory of the kind friend I have and I know politics as a mess and countries have been fighting wars since the time of Alexander the Great but can you blame me for dreaming of kindness and friendship [Music] [Music] I [Applause] [Music] next episode on road trip middle-east [Music] you [Music]


Fae Krz · September 5, 2019 at 9:54 pm

Great work Kylie! Thank you! I just want to mention that Iranians are generous and kind to their own too! They did not offer you food because you were white! I am from Teheran and when I was traveling south of Iran with my father, we could not find any hotels available since it was new year. A newly wed police officer saw us desperate by a street in Bandar Abbas and offered us their apartment to stay over night!!!!!! He did not know us! He and his wife left the apartment for us to be comfortable over night! Iranians are amazing generous kind people! So proud to be Iranian!

Iran is the best country in the world and old history

I love Iran from Somalia

Please you must visit to my country Somalia One day

Lennox · September 6, 2019 at 1:07 am

Unfortunately Iran has been Trashed by Islam + Turks +Arabs and Mongols .
Turks have been in power in Iran for more than 1000 years and they imposed this Shiit Shit
Islamic Cult to Iranians by FORCE , Turks ruled over Iran by Force of Army and Fear , even till now
they have caused this Cancerous Cult to remain in Iran , death to Turks , Arabs and Mongols and
their Followers … Iran should be called TURKISTAN not Iran any more .

Amaal ALsadie · September 6, 2019 at 1:22 am

morning dear, it is a good idea that you want learn about other culters, why don't you start from others who live in Europe? see if they live free, I think when you get to know who lives near you its gonna be much easier to see it inside their country.wish you all the best in your journey with love.

Zahid Hussain · September 6, 2019 at 3:49 am

Kylie Great work. You look beautiful in head scarf. I appreciate to take leap and travel in Iran to show how people are kind and beautiful. In Iran with magnificent locations. I felt tear while watch this Video. I feel indeed human beings are kind and loving that values have to share in this entire world and respect every culture and tradition. In my view every nation should be in win-win position. Great job👍🇮🇳

salman sadozai · September 6, 2019 at 4:38 am

iran is beautiful i wish i could also visit this country someday, iranian architecture specially mosques and shrines are little different than our Pakistani mosques i think people of iran and tajikistan loves blue color , where as most of the mosques here are white and sometimes of other colors. indeed people of Turkey, Iran and Pakistan are most hospitable. Even though turkey and iran are more than best friends like brothers to us but one thing i don't like about these two countries is that they make tea without milk while in our region we make milk tea , No offence it is almost impossible for a Pakistani to drink black tea without milk other than that i love everything about these two countries specially people with big hearts.

Hi Kylie, I must say that your work is amazing especially your style of naration, the cinematography, editing, all and all your inspiring view point. I have enjoyed watching all your videos. Btw, I think right about now you might be in Tehran, let me know if you need a host or assistance or just someone to accompany you in exploring the in and outs of Tehran. Keep up the good work!

Kylie Flavell · September 6, 2019 at 9:15 am

Thank you so much for all the love from Iranians and also people who are open to discovering the beauty of Iran. This episode now has Persian SUBTITLES! On mobile, in the top right corner of the video screen you will see three dots. Click and select CAPTIONS to choose subtitle language ‘Persian’. On desktop, click the settings ⚙️ icon in the lower right corner and select SUBTITLES/CC. I am no longer in Iran but I am currently editing the next episode in which you will see my travels north to Kashan, Tehran, Kandovan and Tabriz!! Please also note, a few people have misunderstood the part where I talk about skin colour. I included this because some Iranians commented on my last episode saying “the only reason she was shown kindness is because she is white and blonde”. I disagree with this and my whole point is that although I’m aware I am very privileged to have certain liberties, I have seen kindness shown to all kinds of people in Iran. This is the very reason I interviewed the British family in the last episode – to show you travellers with children who might have had a different experience to mine. Please remember, this is not a documentary made by the tourism board. It is supposed to be natural and real, showing the people who come across my path. If I had more time, or if I had a crew helping me, or if I had a film permit to interview people about more issues, I could have made a more in-depth study of this country. But also remember, I was not granted a film permit so I was only legally allowed to film my holiday and the things that happened to me as a tourist on a tourist visa. Thank you for your time and your understanding. 💗💗💗💗 Hope you will come back to watch next episode. 🙏🙏

Jack Roberto · September 6, 2019 at 9:16 am

Kylie, I just love your style of documenting and I'm totally in love with your Iran series! Iran was never on my bucket list of places I want to go to but now it is, thanks to you!

lovesallweneed · September 6, 2019 at 9:47 am

Am a 72 years old Persian who was not born in Iran but speak/write Farsi fluently. Thanks to my parents, especially my mother who was illiterate but could recite Persian poetry beautifully. My bucket list is for one last visit to Iran and to travel by land, again. Then another trip to Morocco. Your programme is fair and you are a kind lady, besides your enthusiasm to learn about others without being influenced by the fear that the Western political media garners. Thank you again. Salamati. Peace be upon you. XXX p.s. About 5 years ago I did over 1000 km across Iran hitch-hiking with a small-pack. (Think noble, speak noble and act noble – an ancient Zoroastrian Persian ethos.)

hello & welcome, love you & all of the world. you know not all of peoples are the same in 1 country, but in Iran all are kind. you have seen 1 % of Iran. I suggest more cities; Shoosh, Hamedan, Ramsar, Lahijan, not big cities, but just search & find pictures. go to the North of Iran & you will see another country! good luck.

Bronson Deleon · September 6, 2019 at 6:48 pm

People are great and wonderful on both sides, it's the governments on both sides that are wrong, wars are created by evil people, sanctions are hurting the people only not the government, in history sanction never work, study history, you will find out it never works.

This summer I had the opportunity to visit Iran for 2 weeks. I can totally relate with your videos. I was amazed by the People, Culture, Architecture and Landscape. The most hospitable country I have ever visited. I never felt unsafe or in danger during the trip! I visited the most beautiful places I've ever been, where it's almost bizarre to not see any foreign tourists.

rob lanchi · September 6, 2019 at 9:25 pm

Weman are free?? is that a joke. all is about control, weman are not free anywhere in the world. this mans club. In reality, we all are controlled, man and woman. it is capitalism all over and people are wage slaves. Especially countries like Iran where is not livable at all.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful memories from Iran it brought tears to my eyes even as an Iranian touched my heart dear ♥️♥️

Derry Daly · September 7, 2019 at 12:18 pm

Very beautifully shot and thought provoking videos. You have shown that the vast part of western media gives a distorted view of the people of Iran which are exceedingly warm hearted & generous in their nature. Always ready to enjoy themselves and as you witnessed, just love to both picnic & BBQ. I would say they are the Irish of the East as they also love to party! I wonder in your travels to the North, had you also taken in the provinces of Gilan & Mazandaran, where Iranians especially from Tehran like to journey too ?

Neg in · September 7, 2019 at 12:55 pm

I am an Iranian and I got goosebumps and tears throughout the whole video! Thank you so much for making this great quality video about my country. One thing I noticed is that you actually used Persian music. I have seen other videos and most of them used just any middle eastern music, but yours is Persian. Good job 🙂

Saeed Taheri · September 7, 2019 at 4:47 pm

Dear Kylie, the only word that I can use about your work and your journey in Iran is FABULOUS. God bless you.You're a brilliant

Iran is the most peaceful of the middle east and the younger generation are trying to change things . Hopefully they succeed . My dad left Iran because of the strong dictatorship

Your video is treat to watch. Love from Pakistan 🇵🇰❤

Aziz Rahman · September 8, 2019 at 6:43 pm

It's great to see individuals like yourself filming road trips, there are many who do it like tv personalities etc, but you can see it being scripted not to mention on a payroll..
To be honest I feel as though there kinda taking the piss out these countries .
Keep filming, keep safe, keep well

I have been in Iran more than one year. Iranian people are so beautiful and nice. the western world misunderstanding Iran so much. Iranian people are so talented and proud, but nut good at negotiating with outside world. sometimes, you have to compromise, because the real world is never fair.

Mousa Rouholamini · September 8, 2019 at 8:21 pm

I am from IRAN……this video is very good.

Saman · September 8, 2019 at 11:06 pm

Kylie your narration is so pure and beautiful. My favorite part is where you said in the previous episode “ call to prayer is so beautiful but often…”
In that scene the music the filming and your narration blended perfectly.

About what you commented on this video, no worries about the permit, it is almost impossible to go through all the hectic paperwork.

I am going to introduce you a website which is handled by the son of one of the most famous Iranian directors, Abbas Kiarostami.

In the US, Canada, and all over the world he presents documentaries that never got permit.
Your work deserves to be presented in more prestigious than YouTube.

I am sharing the link you may get the idea what I am talking about.

If you want your “Tehran” episode to be seen through the docunight just comment here.

Kylie, thanks for the great videos. They are amazing. What camera did you use? It is very vivid and full of color

Sasan Ahmadi Asl · September 9, 2019 at 7:19 am

Tears, emotion and deep feeling of peace and love. What a beautiful story you are telling and how professional you are in documenting your trip. I cried on both parts of your Iran trip, the man with the bicycle reminds me of a pure heart wanting to connect with other people. The voice of the two man singing are touching the soul and they only touch because of the temptation behind it is completely pure, honest love. You are doing a very delicate job and I am eager to see the rest of your trip in Iran. Thank you with all my heart, for showing us the great Iran.

Iran…? Where is Iran I know Iron….

Rasam Rostami · September 9, 2019 at 8:10 am

Appreciate making this well made and well-described video. It means a lot to me as an Iranian living in Tehran, and I'm so happy you had this amazing experience of Iranian reality, enjoying simple moments that you can find the whole universe within. Peace and Love. ❤️

Santha Kumari · September 9, 2019 at 9:44 am

Iranians hating Americans is bull#*#*#,
If anything,Iran love Americans..
Perhaps Americans hate Americans than more Iranians..

Imtiaz Ahmad · September 9, 2019 at 11:55 am

Iran and turkey both are better than Saudi, why every Muslim knows

mahdi asiaee · September 9, 2019 at 2:20 pm

IRAN is the best country,but unfortunately government… .

Md Al Nahian Chowdhury · September 9, 2019 at 5:09 pm

She said something is "older than Islam" 😂 😂 .
Bro, Islam is here since Adam & Eve . Islam was always the chosen path of God . All the prophets were Muslims . Now ask yourself what is Islam ? Just Google it and become a Muslim . As simple as that . Thank me later .😉

Rick Chollett · September 9, 2019 at 7:01 pm

Your only error in this video is believing that anyone in America can buy a gun. Everyone who wants to purchase a gun must go through a background check. You've made me want to visit Iran!!

Abood .h · September 9, 2019 at 7:38 pm

I love Iran frome syria ❤❤❤🌹
Wellcom to syria every body❤❤🌹

Iman Kia · September 9, 2019 at 8:21 pm

Kudos on the video and incredible production quality for a 1 person operation! Please don't start justifying yourself every time people comment. People will always complain no matter what. Keep doing your way, there something very special there.

Thank you very nice .

I'm an American woman who does not share the world views that most Americans have. I enjoy your trip logs because of your talent, honesty, and the sharing of truth about these beautiful places and wonderful people who are not a representative of their governments and political climates but are representing the raw and true face of the people. I thank you for your time and efforts. Also, this was such a short video. The lengthy pieces of your journey are appreciated more because we have been given a look into the thoughts and views of the Iranian people themselves. I did enjoy the professor's share. Could you tell us more about how you came to be traveling with the Italian Physicist and what that has been like? Your personal experience enhances the journey for us. No need to get lengthy or feel tied down by presenting that situation. Just a window into it. I liked watching the two of you singing in the car. That was fun. I take it you are French. How has this journey stood as a contrast to the political and social climate of your own country. We hear much about the American views, but not really about your own country. Perhaps I am wrong and you are Belgian. I do not know. What I do know is that your trip has been inviting and your experiences are enjoyable. I hope to see whom else you have had the good fortune to meet and speak with. Perhaps the women there might tell us what it is like living in a country that has such a long past and a more current growth.

Im from tehran and i cant wait for the next epi
Have a safe journey 🌸🌸

Amirali Arian · September 11, 2019 at 12:29 am

Mesmerising, brought back so many comprehensive memories of a country I left years ago, your cinematography was so good that it felt almost tangible that I could hardly fail to grasp it.

Atiyeh Shafiee · September 11, 2019 at 2:21 am

I cried with this episode! Isfahan is my father’s hometown. My hometown is Tehran. I spent most of summer times with my cousins during my childhood in Isfahan. I have a lot of memories from this beautiful city. I believe Isfahan is the most beautiful city in Iran. When I saw Zayendeh Rood River in your video I was crying for it I missed old summer nights seating with my family next to the river. Now I am in US and have not seen Iran for 7 years. Your video touched my heart. Thank you for your kind words about Iranian people and understanding them very well. They are really in a bad economic situation but they still try to be happy and love having guests in their home.
