Welcome to the Land Roamer's blog!

I created this blog to keep my family and friends informed about the Land Roamer’s 
preparation, planning for the trip and later to keep in touch during my overland adventures.

Having had both a Land Rover and a Land Cruiser, I decided that I would call my 
4x4 camper-truck, a Brimont Brutt (more info here) "Land Roamer".

To roam: "To travel purposefully unhindered through a wide area. It suggests wandering freely
 and often far afield."  Etymology: Middle English, 14th century, Merriam-Webster.  

"Live for the JOURNEY, not the Destination!"

Driving from Persepolis to Bandar Abbas

Nowruz festivities...
The Iranian Red Crescent Society had a booth in FASA. As a former ICRC staff, 
I HAD to stop and greet the people promoting their activiites and collecting funds !

Darabgerd: One of the oldest cities dated to Achaemenid Era (550–330 BC). 
Around this ancient city, there is a huge conical wall (originally more than 10 m high) built of stone, lime and clay. Erosion process destroyed the wall, which is only 7 m high because of erosion, today.
Staff from the tourist office wanted to have my comments on the ruins. I was interviewd...

Where is Waldo ?
