I am Austrian, was born and raised in Tehran. Have travelled all over Iran, Turkey, most of Eastern and Western Europe, southern Africa, and Central Asia. I am fluent in five languages, which helped me a lot in my travels.
In my visited destinations I have only mentioned those that I spent some time in, travelled around internally and really got to "smell the air" in. There are many places that I did not mention as I only transited and saw only the airport, or the ones where I just spent one night or two and went on without really touching base with the reality of the place.
My Favorite Places:
Every place I have been to had its charms and beauty, as well as certain draw backs. However, my real favourites would be the Alborz mountains in Iran, and Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.
