Istanbul to Tehran. 74 hours, 3000km, 2 trains, 1 ferry. October 2009.

Born in Iran, but a South African citizen living in the United Kingdom, I have always been keen to return to the land where I was born. And what better way to do it then by train? In this case my wife and I took the Trans-Asia Express from Istanbul to Tehran, a journey lasting three days and nights including a five hour ferry ride across the beautiful Lake Van in Turkey.
