Back home and back to the ol’ grind but can’t believe I was in Peru 48 hours ago. There is something about traveling with a group of strangers that makes it much easier to bond and make friends. Here’s to the week ahead, vámonos!

PIÑA COLADA (Só pra deixar o meu feed organizadinho). 💙
To get an idea of the scale of this awesome canyon notice that tiny little dot which is a person at the top right of the frame on the ledge of the cliff. We had to sit in the back of a pickup truck on a rocky road for about half an hour to get to this place, because we couldn’t go with out own car. But it was totally worth it and all of this made for a more memorable experience.
When most of us Iranians think of the south of Iran, we think of the beautiful shores & turquoise waters of the Persian Gulf & Sea of Oman, very hot & humid weather, colourful clothing, very friendly & fun-loving people, palm trees, and tasty hot & spicy food all of which is very different than the rest of Iran.
But there is more to the south of Iran than just that. The south of Iran is also a true heaven for geology lovers among other things. This is because the southern parts of the Zagros Mountains are very seismically active and are constantly changing form due to the tectonic friction between the Iranian and Arabian tectonic plates. The Buchir Canyon near the city of Parsian in Hormozgan province is one of these amazing geological formations that has been created both due to tectonic movements and also water and wind erosion.
There is a really beautiful natural spring that pours into this narrow but deep canyon creating beautiful views deep down in the canyon. And there is also a waterfall and cave within the canyon which adds to its beauty. But this deep and narrow canyon itself is really mysterious looking and you can make out various images within the rocks and cliffs of this canyon. In this photo for example, you can notice a cliff that looks like the profile (side-view) of a face looking to the left. There is also an ancient aqueduct that passes over the canyon that was used to transfer water in the past. And the surrounding landscapes are also very beautiful. All in all if you’re into geology, canyoning or nature in general and you’re in that region I’d definitely suggest you visit this place.
Have you ever been to a canyon? If yes, can you tell us the nicest canyons you’ve been to?

“I’m still a kid inside, and adventure is adventure wherever you find it.”
This kid was hilarious! I asked him to give me a smile, but he clearly was auditioning for a part in a child’s movie!
My trip to Switzerland was hands down the best trip I’ve ever taken. (it’s only competition was Santorini on our honeymoon!) Maybe it’s because we didn’t have many expectations or because we went into it without any kind of planning, or maybe because everywhere you turn Switzerland literally takes your breath away — it was a dream! 😍 I’m sharing the details of our trip on the blog today at noon. Get ready!
