Rebecca Lowe The Slow Road to Tehran

In July 2015 the Syrian war raged and the refugee crisis reached its peak. Rebecca set off alone on her bicycle across the Middle East. Driven by a desire to challenge preconceptions about this long misunderstood region, her year long journey took her through Western Europe and the Balkans to Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Sudan, Oman, the UAE and Iran. The 11000 km odyssey through landscapes and history captured her heart and her stomach. But plagued by punctures, fearsome heat, repressive police states and a truly obscene number of kebabs it also frequently came close to defeating her.
