British travel writer Lois Pryce takes on Iran

"What's it like to motorcycle solo through Iran as a woman?" While I can't say I've personally given this question much thought, when I saw the article this morning, I was certainly intrigued. British travel writer Lois Pryce motorcycled 3,000 miles through Iran on her own. At the end of her adventure, she declared Iran to be a nation divided between an authoritarian regime and friendly, welcoming people. Her story is an inspiring one and most definitely worth a read. You can also check out a short clip from her documentary.

@sophiamor that must only be the men then because it's actually illegal for women to ride motorcycles in Iran - the only way Lois was able to do it was because she's foreign.
@ahnjp05 I'm hoping to travel to Iran at the end of the year for similar reasons to Lois. We hear so much negative information about Iran but it really can't all be like that...I'm also interested in picking up Farsi so I'm keen to travel there to gain a better understanding on the culture!!! Do you know where we can find the rest of the documentary?
@funkystar25 Hmmm they're definitely girls but maybe because they have US citizenship now? I'll have to ask them!
@sohpiamor that would perhaps explain it although I'm still surprised they were allowed. Even just looking Iranian would warrant the police to constantly stop them and request ID... still, if there were able to do it, good for them!! I'd love to hear their opinions
It's unfortunate that foreigners get such special treatment. I wonder how Iranian women felt seeing this woman freely riding through their country simply because she was not of Iranian background.
