I love having guest bloggers as they give a whole new perspective to places and spaces we may have only dreamed of, and share their passion for a destination that might not even be on our radar.  They open our eyes to new concepts, perceptions and opportunities, so when I asked Jemma from Mai Journeys to give us her 3 top reasons why she loves Iran she jumped at the chance to share!  So read all about her Iran below....
