Visit the dynamic landscape of Iceland, the sea, the sky from the viewpoint of travelers.
“Should we go?” Chad Sayers and Forrest Coots decide, indeed, they should. Upon arriving in Iran, they are welcomed with profound warmth, stunned by the immense beauty of the landscape and culture. Threaded through Tehran’s bustling bazaars to Isfahan’s dazzling mosques, the two skiers get a glimpse at the complex dichotomy that divides public and private lives in Iran. As journalist Elaine Sciolino writes, “Iran can be dazzling, and light-filled, a reflection of its complexities; but it can also be cold, confusing, and impenetrable.” To travel to Iran is a reminder of the virtues of travel itself. Nothing is as it first appears. At private ski chalets atop slopes of the Alborz and Zagros mountains, rules and customs relent.

Morocco is a beautiful, unique, challenging and intense part of the world. In the month we spent travelling through this vast country in May 2016 we encountered sandstorms in the Sahara, became lost inside the endless souks of Marrakech and met some incredibly friendly people along the way. From the striking blue city of Chefchaouen, to the endless dunes of Erg Chebbi, and to the relaxed coastal town of Essaouira, Morocco has it all. This is my impression of a country that will forever hold some special memories.
