A Guy Rode His Bike Through Iran, And What He Saw Will Likely Surprise You…

Everyone he meets is more awesome than you can imagine.



A blogger and adventurer who travels the world on an old motorbike has just made a fascinating video about his experiences in Iran. Considering the vast majority of us have very limited knowledge of the country and are influenced heavily by negative media representation, it’s an insightful and much-needed look at the reality of life there.

Ed March went to Iran as part of an epic trip on a Honda C90 from Malaysia to the UK. He admits he was nervous about going, but everyone who had been said it was a wonderful country. Ed decided to go for it, and it ended up being his favorite part of the journey so far. Basically, Ed quickly discovered that Iranians are amazing people. Everyone he passes wants to give him something for free: a pen, an orange, some food, whatever. They all smile and say hello, they want to know where he’s from, they invite him to eat.

“Everyone acts like your friend’s grandmother,” Ed says, shocked at the sheer scale of generosity and hospitality he’s receiving. “And when I say everyone, I mean everyone.”

Positive portrayal of Iran (which looks like a beautiful country, too) is pretty much non-existent in the mainstream media. We shouldn’t be surprised to hear that Iranians are such warm and lovely folk, but years of misrepresentation have managed to persuade us otherwise. Ed, who has made a film about his trip, gives his opinion on why there is so much negative propaganda against the country. “Call me cynical,” he says, “but I think it’s so that when America does invade there’s not going to be any public resistance, because people have been conditioned to believe Iran is evil.”

Do you agree? Please share this interesting slice of reality in Iran. Have you ever traveled there or to another Muslim country? Did you have similar experiences to Ed March? Let us know your thoughts below!

    Just how many of these kind people would our respective governments in the West like to murder?

    About to watch the following:


    • Yes, the elite scumbag horrible people, evil beyond words. Their arrogance really rubs me up the wrong way
      cannot have a place on this earth lke Iran, with pleasant smiling, spiritual nice people with rock solid values
      No. The scum have to infiltrate and destroy covertly from within
      This is how viruses work
      Infiltrating the cell and hijacking its machinery
      Could beautiful earth in the distant past have been infected by khazarian Satanist viruses? An interdimensional virus? Ive read, and it might be true. There are thousands and millions of planets controlled by this bad empire. If that’s true, then we should give equal weight to reports, that a good confederation exists too. Time will tell if ll this has any truth to it.Or if thr entire show begins and ends right here on this planet earth

        I found this link posted on the jhaines website.
        I think it is called “transurfing”.
        I have never heard of it but, it looks like it is about transforming ones life ?

        I am about to have a look at it.
        I thought it might also be of interest to you ?

    Pleasant change. Good one TAP. Governments and war mongers are such an irritant. Thankfully there were none here.

    The only negative – avoid Red Bull. Indeed, avoid canned drinks generally.

    Gently uplifting.

    Tragic to think that Iran will be next if the psycho’s get their way.
