No booze for a week - will I survive?

Jump to last reply

I just received my passport back with the Iranian visa affixed, so there is no turning back now. I will be leaving Chicago for Istanbul on Turkish Airlines in late June. Connecting through IST then on to Tehran. I am going solo and doing the standard Isfahan, Shiraz and Tehran trip. Short, I know. To be honest, the thought of not drinking (on vacation none-the-less) is as stressful as the thought of going to Iran.

As a seasoned traveler, I have been to all the places so many people are afraid to go. However, I have I to say that I am apprehensive about going to this country, as it has been a "no-go destination" for most of my life. My parents want to kill me for going! I do appreciate the feedback from everyone here on their own trips to Iran. That has made me feel a little better about my decision.

Just hope that I can get through customs into Tehran and back into the US with no issues or hassles due to my choice of a travel destination. We'll see.

I will say I am sick and tired of people telling me I'm crazy.
