A caravansary, countless memories… By the morning twilight the Caravan gets ready to depart, on its long journey across the desert. Reminds us the stories of One Thousand and One Nights, caravansaries were the motels if you were traveling several hundred years ago in the Middle East and central Asia, the roadside Inns to safely rest overnight.
Here in the morning blue hour, Mars shines brightly in Taurus, the Bull, near Pleiades (the Seven Sisters star cluster). Perseus is on top right. This was in 2005 when I was slowly shifting from film to DSLRs. Rests in Kavir National Park, 4 hours drive from Tehran, this is known as Qasr-e Bahram (or Bahram Palace). Not visiting there for 10 years now I have beautiful memories from this caravansary, my teenagehood first stargazing nights in early 90s to a morning like this when I met my future wife.
Caravansary (pronounces Caravanserai) is a Persian word comes from caravan and sarāy “house”. About 500 of them are remained in Iran (and others in neighboring countries) and listed as protected historic monuments, some are even updated to working hotels. The earliest examples were the stations along the 2500-km long Royal Road in the Achaemenid Empire, some 2500 years ago but most of the remaining Caravansaries are built during Shāh Abbās I of Persia, about 400 years ago. The network was built to support the flow of commerce, information, and people on trade routes covering Asia, North Africa, and South-Eastern Europe.

#Followmeto Bali with @natalyosmann. ✣ This island is like a chameleon for me. First time we came here was around four years ago and we didn’t really understand the island. The problem was that we only went to the touristic spots and stayed mostly in Seminyak. ✣ ✣ ✣ ✣ ✣ ✣ ✣ ✣ To really understand the island - you have to feel it and to seek for some hidden gems - you will see that it has a lot to offer: from the beautiful beaches of Uluwatu, to the peacefulness of Ubud. We managed to see the temples we haven’t seen before (though I regret, not waking up for Lempuyang temple on sunrise), managed to experience the ceremonies with local shamans and drove bike everywhere even it if was raining cats and dogs, found some really cool cafes in Seminyak with which we fell in love. This island is forever in our hearts. ✣ ✣ ✣ ✣ ✣ ✣ ✣ ✣ ✣ ✣ ✣ ✣ ✣ ✣ ✣ Share your experience if you been there and how it changed if you came several times? What are your favorite places there? 🎵parcels: gamesofluck
