on the road

The first thing I noticed after leaving the airport was the reckless driving! The first 3 weeks I had to close my eyes every time I got in the car. I ALWAYS put on my seatbelt first thing and got made fun of for it... 

I couldn't help but always scream "watch out!" or "be careful!" but in a way they are being careful... due to having no street rules or since no one obeys them anyway, my dad kept telling me to calm down because if he did slow down or stop for the pedestrians to cross all the cars behind him would crash into him and if he doesn't speed or find his way around the other cars would honk non stop. It's true, as crazy as it was... I was just not used to it. My dad wanted to teach me how to drive standard but I was too afraid, in some situations it's hard to "man up".

On my way home from Northern Iran I witnessed someones death. I couldn't help but cry. I have never seen so much blood in real life. The driving is horrible enough, and on top of it the pedestrians are just too brave. They cross the street where ever they please. On the highway a man decided to cross. I didn't even know it was possible to cross that busy highway... He got hit by a car and the cars windshield shattered. I only saw this man laying on the gravel in a pool of his own blood with a blanket over his head which was also soaked in blood. First time I have ever seen anything like that and I hope it'll also be the last time. (sorry for the gory story.)

home again

I am home again from a long trip! It's been a long time since I've posted, and I know I should at least try to put more effort but honestly having a blog is like having a full time job. The real bloggers that I follow are just so incredible that I can't even say I am a "blogger". I hope one day I can finally learn and become better at what I want to do.

Since it's difficult for me to always do outfit posts I've decided to change up my blog a little bit. It's not just going to about outfits anymore. I always have a camera with me, either my iPhone or my Nikon, I enjoy taking pictures of literally anything. Anything that looks pretty. So just how I have a variety of different pictures on my instagram account, my blog posts will be similar. It'll include the yummy foods I eat, the beautiful places I visit, or anything else really. Of course I will still try my best to do outfits too.

Anyway, lets talk about my trip!!! On May 6th I went to Iran. I decided to fly there alone since my dad has been there for a few months. The flight was insane! I had to fly for 10 hour to Germany first and I had a 7 hour lay over there, then another 5 and a half hour flight to Iran. When I saw my dad at the airport waiting for me it finally hit me that I was in Iran. Going to Iran after 13 years... well it was different. I'll save the rest for another blog post with more pictures;)

ps. It's going to take a lot of posts to finish my story!
