Couchsurfing around Iran

Iran (Mount Damavand 5610m)

Completed May 2018

!Couchsurfing is a social network where people host or be hosted by fellow travellers. It’s a ‘gift economy’ and no money changes hands, however, you can bring a very small gift from your country for your host and their kind act of putting a roof over your head for a night or two. I like to use the site in lesser travelled countries,( i.e - Mauritania, Kyrgyzstan and now Iran) I feel it gives you a glimpse into everyday existence and makes the travel raw-er and more memorable. I’d heard such positive reports about the Iranian people and their hospitality so I thought why not attempt to couchsurf the whole time I was there.
