Treks and Travels Iran and Georgia
On September 19, I returned from five weeks travelling in Georgia and Iran. In Georgia I was on my own, travelling about on public transport to various locations in the Caucasus Mountains. In Iran I joined my daughter Lara and twelve others for a two week commercial excursion; one week of mountain trekking and a second week of cultural experiences. I found much to enjoy in each of these countries. My presentation will include pictures and stories of my travels within these two adjoining, but otherwise markedly different countries.
