In 2011 and 2012 our family (two adults and a toddler) travelled from the UK to Iran in a 4×4 campervan.

As much as possible, we stayed away from obvious routes, tourist attractions and campsites. Instead, we opted to travel on back roads and to camp out in fields. Our daily driving target was 150 kilometres.

The journey was a fantastic and memorable adventure, taking in places and encounters I wouldn’t have dreamed I would ever experience. We would do it again at the drop of a hat.

I have posted these images to convey the joy and excitement of slow travel and wild camping. The photos are also supposed to show off our expedition vehicle of choice, a 1991 syncro with an 1.9 tdi engine conversion.

Travelling in a 4×4, by the way, not only allowed us to visit places we otherwise would have missed, it was at times essential, for example when we crossed the Iran/ Iraq border through deep snow with hours left on our visa.
