Hard to believe how much we got around four years ago…

This exquisite garden, one of many UNESCO World Heritage sites we visited in Iran, dates back to the early Safavid era (16th century CE). With its symmetrical proportions, towering cypress and sycamore trees, spring fed turquoise-tiled pools and fountains, it is renowned as being the very epitome of the Persian garden and its evocation of heaven.

This year we’re hoping that we’ll soon be able to take our first trip off Vancouver Island since Christmas of 2019.
