I like to know if a westerner can feel ‘safe’ living and working in Iran. My husband and I get so many mixed reactions but still, we are confident about our decision to go to Iran to work and live and meet the wonderful people that we have been reading about.
After all, I would like to hear from people who really know the country if there is anything we should worry about.
Yes, whatever you heard about the people of Iran is correct. Iranians are very friendly and helpful; they are very curious about Europeans. Don’t be scared or shocked if Iranians approach you, they want to communicate, it all comes from the hospitality behavior of these people. You will make many friends in Iran and will keep in contact.
Like many cities in Europe, with some common sense, you will be on the safe side. Keep away from unfamiliar places, especially at night. Be friendly to the people, and they will return the gesture. Once you are in Iran try to relax and have fun, respect the culture and people and you will get ten times back in kindness. In Iran, you will enjoy the hospitality, beautiful culture, old history, delicious foods, and much more.
All due to biased propaganda many people may get fear what is going to happen there. After the first trip, they love to travel for the next times.
