Tbilisi Old Town


Quelques jours passés à Heidelberg chez Phildar et Carolina avec les potes des Skallumés (groupe-icône culte de toute une génération d’ESSTINinens).

Rien de vraiment phénoménal à raconter, si ce n’est la joie de passer la nouvelle année avec des amis …

Benin : Dogbo on Flickr

Earlier on this month, I got contacted through Facebook (my profile is here) by an old friend of mine with whom I’ve been travelling to Benin 3 years ago.

The occasion for me to remember these goold old …

Iran : 2 weeks in another world

Here we are. My 7 posts long report from my trip in Iran is over. I hope you enjoyed it, and the pictures (if so, leave a comment here :)).

Here is a recap, with all the links :


Iran #7 : Tehran : Alternative iranian way of life

Tehran. Final (4 days long) step of our trip. We flew from Yazd with Iran Air. Service was good, and flight went smooth. 1h20, 800 kms, 23 US $ (yes yes).

We arrived by night straight to our Hospitality Club …

Iran #6 : Yazd : arid and luminous

Back from Persepolis, one more night in Shiraz, and we were heading to Yazd.

Iran #5 : Persepolis : quiet & mystic

The main reason we were going to Shiraz was Persepolis, the last remainin ruins from the Achaemenid Empire. About 2 500 years old.

So we left very early in the morning, by public transportation to reach the place.…

Iran #4 : Shiraz : depressing and austere

Without any other transition than a 7 hours bus trip by night, we arrived to Shiraz.

Tough change compared to the Half of the World.

Iran #3 : Esfahan : easy-going, visual, elegant

Second stop, in Esfahan, where our trip really started.

Iran #2 : Kashan , suffocating

Our first step of the trip. Kashan, small city south/south east and 4 hours by bus from Tehran (only) 150 000 inhabitants.

A first rigorous stop in a very traditional city, where the only coloured clothes you see in the …

Iran #1 : Getting there

As you probably know (if you’re reading Follow the Way regularly :)), I’ve been 2 weeks in Iran on holidays, with a swiss friend (whose female point of view is also interesting).

2 weeks in a totally crazy country, far …

Just a small post to tell y ou that everythig is OK here in Iran.

I am actually in Esfahan, since 3 days and 1 more.

Words are missing to describe the Imam square, the blue Mosques and endless bazars. …

Away in Iran

7 hours before taking the bus to Qazvin.

Two weeks in Iran. Qazvin so, then Qom (one of the oldest Holy cities of Islam), Kashan, Esfahan, Yazd, Shiraz, Persepolis and finally Tehran. Then flying back to Yerevan :)

Discovering Tbilisi take 2

Here some pictures from my stay in Tbilisi last week.
As usual, it was too short (4 days), we didn’t had time to travel outside the city.

But nevermind, I loved hanging around the ethnic districts, jewish, azeri, armenian, all …
