Moira Dunworth, teacher and researcher in UK, travelled from Ankara to Tehran with Transasia Express.
As we approached Tatvan, where we will change to a ferry on Lake Van, we were travelling through snow and the scenery was breath-taking. It was warm and sunny as we transferred to the ferry, fooling around on the top deck in spite of the dire warning below: ‘To save your life do not go upstairs’. As we moved off the others all considered that it was cold but it felt fine and fresh to me. I was trying to wear my scarf but kept getting my camera tangled up in it, so gave up after a short time.
