How is Iran For Alex?
For Alex Iran is a unique country than other places, he believes that the countries have been changing quickly to be modern as everywhere. He will come to Iran again for sure but next time he says will come to Iran by real motorcycle, not Vespa :)) Vspa is nice but not for the desert and some mountainous areas in fall and winter. he really starts to feel the need of a sport motorcycle for his trip.
He found driving in Iran difficult, on the road some truck drivers pass nearby which by a motorcycle is not safe. He thinks that Iran is quite a safe country for even traveling alone. The best experience of traveling in Iran for Alex has been welcoming people, good food, mostly he likes people of Iran. The Iranian people comparing to European are much more open to talking to strangers, in real social for real not like Online social!
Due to Alex’s travel style, he can’t buy souvenirs to take with him but he is into The Iranian Carpet which is world well known.
In Iran he bought Knife in Tabriz which is a very famous souvenir of Zanjan, he also bought camel wool socks to cover his leg in cold weather.

Alex And DaricPay Iran Travel Card
He first heard about DaricPay in Turkey in one of the hostels in Van that one Dutch Guy named Mike introduced DaricPay Iran Travel to Alex so He contacted us and got his Debit card in Tehran, at Heritage hostel.
Due to international credit cards are useless in Iran Alex didn’t know what exactly he wanted to do with his cash in Iran so he had decided to hide some money in several parts of his motorcycle like the engine, Or in emergency cases get some cash from some stores or exchange offices even in higher fees.
He said with DaricPay it is much safer and comfortable. As a person who camps on the road, he found DaricPay as a safe way to keep his money because he never experienced this situation in other countries he says, Although Iran is a safe country for traveling but can be worrying traveling by whole travel budget in your pocket. He doesn’t want to camp with 1000 Euros of cash.
