“Saboktar” is the Persian word for “Lighter”. It`s about travel stories of three Iranian women who have left behind their cultural boundaries and created their new life more lightly. Since traveling as a woman is not that much common in their country, they are kind of pioneering women in their travel style. They travel a lot inside and outside Iran and share the joy and wisdom of their travels with other people.

No matter what their travel style is called, they are passionate about new experiences and new adventures. They love wandering in unknown areas and getting a real touch of a place by hanging out with local people and trying local food and lifestyle. No matter it`s a famous city or somewhere deep in a bush, they know how to get lost there and discover unique untouched things. They love off the beaten paths and they can enjoy camping as much as staying in a five star hotel.

For them traveling is not about copying what everybody does, it`s about leaving a new trail and seeing the world from different people’s eyes.  So no matter where they go and how they travel, they create their own unique experiences. They say:

In “Saboktar” we rid ourselves of a heavy mind and a heavy backpack and travel through life more lightly!

I’ve traveled to over 10 countries and have knocked some great adventures off my bucket list. I hitchhiked across my country and Europe as a solo female traveller. Then one day I started to write about my adventures. Soon I realized my experiences could help other people to travel more around the world.So here I am as a blogger!

Being graduated in engineering and not being satisfied with it, Maryam was encouraged to go for her passion: a lifestyle around traveling. She has been traveling solo or in a group, outside or inside Iran for more than 3 years now. Since solo female traveling is not common in Iran, her travel blogging is very inspiring and encouraging for Iranian people.

When she started hitchhiking trips around Iran in 2015 Pari was a medical student on her last year. What happened was that as she travelled more she got addicted to exploring the world and somehow realized that becoming a doctor had never been her passion. And that’s how she quit medicine and became a travel blogger.
