Historical cities of Persia and the Silk Road, mosques with impressive designs, a rich cultural background, endless deserts and, above all, a people proud of their Persian origins and their hallmark: hospitality. It doesn't matter if you are in a bazaar in Tabriz, a small town in the Zagros Mountains, a beach on the Caspian Sea, the inhospitable interior, an island in the Persian Gulf or touring the unexplored province of Balochistan: Azeris, Kurds, Turkmen, Baluch and all Persians throughout the country will treat you wonderfully.
That is precisely Iran's greatest treasure: the Iranians. The more you travel, the more you will appreciate how different they are in terms of political and social ideology. There are more modern and more conservative populations, there are people who stick more to the rigid law than others... But there is something that remains the same: their friendliness and hospitality, especially towards those of us who come from abroad.
El Pekín Express Canino. In March 2019, my dog Cocaí and I left Madrid with a backpack, a tent and an ambitious mission: hitchhiking to China. When we were in India, an unwanted guest came on the scene and turned the world upside down, including our trip. Three years later we returned home, taking with us a path full of learning, adventures, wonderful beings... and a new dog: Chai :-) More info about this book, actually a trilogy, here (only Spanish).
South America & North America Travel Diaries. These two books speak, in the form of diaries, of my first years as a backpacker, including the encounter with Cocaí in Bolivia and all the adventures I lived with her. I place special emphasis on the connection with nature and the people that the journey gave us. Read more here (only Spanish).
