Whats up here?

vision
I am looking to find a way to send the message of "We Need Trees" as far as I can. This message is a symbol of our work but educating more people and increase the awareness about environment are what I am about to do. Education is a very important way to stop destroying the nature, and of course kids are making future. so educated kids will do much better than what we are doing now!!!!
mission
I want to give this message to you , all of you and all people of the world without considering their race , religion or nationality .
I am going to ask all the people of the world to keep the “ care for the
world and plant trees ” , because our life depends on the life of the trees .
To put it in action ,I am cycling around the world to pass the message of WE NEED TREES and in cities along the way I go to schools to make a workshop for kids and talk about trees. I talk about trees and their importance in our life and we discuss to find out what we indevidually can do for our planet to keep it clean.
Kids are making future and if they learn how to look after nature then we will have green earth and blue sky.
About my workshops in school 
In the school we usually set a workshop with students ( age between 7 to the end of high school !). first I tell them about my journey a bit and after ward we discuss about our personal impact on environment. there re some materials like PPT, pictures, video which I use during the class. 
At the end we wrap up with planting a tree all together to symbolize our action and make a physical contact with earth. we always use our hands to give dirt and soil to the tree and some part of our soul too, in return to receive from earth.
 All my activities and visiting school is for free, just I will be happy if school provide the tree, otherwise I will bring it myself.

Barcelona to Madrid and having some hard challenging days

May
22

Cycling after Barcelona to Madrid Before I go to Barcelona I contacted few members of CS and WS in regard of having a place to stay while staying in Barcelona. Arantxa and Harriet were the ones who replied positively to my request and luckily Harriet was a teacher who could organize a tree planting in her school. I arrived around 8:30 when Arantxa was not available and I contacted Sara who is her flat mate. We met on the Catalonia square and we cycled home with Sara, An Italian friendly girl who could easily represent the culture and show how it is different from north of Europe.
I was happy to meet them and talk to them and later at night when Arantxa came also I had the same experience.

We Need Trees

 

I met Mohammad on Warm Showers and hosted him for a couple of nights in Barcelona, during which time we talked about travelling, bikes, serendipity, and crazy dreams. He also came to the school where I work – ES International School near Barcelona where a group of highly motivated student-athletes spend their days studying and pursuing their own dreams of becoming great athletes, tennis players and bike racers.
It was a beautiful Friday – the day when we usually have our house meetings at school. Mohammad and I carried a small olive tree on the metro and lost a few
olives on the bus while the sun was rising over the motorway

Planting tree in Adela Abrines - Madrid

May
12

Yesterday, it was a pleasure attending at the tree workshop that Mohammad have made in my daughter’s school, called Adela Abrines, in Madrid, Spain. The destiny has made that our life meet Mohammad’s life. I believe life is a movement about give and receive, but he is making it with a very special art. He has told and question to the kids of five and six years old about the essential roll of the trees for all been alive.
And he has made it as their early level, with concise words, short and clear sentences: nest, apples, and shadow, hug the trees, clean the air, give water to the trees

Planting tree in Girona

May

5 years ago on May 2008 I met Marta Maergali from Spain in New Zealand while we were both cycling but in oposite directions.  we were staying both in  haast in a hostel. just an hour of chat at night and saying goodbye next morning was all our friendship experience.
I kept in touch with her through my common emails I send once a while and when I came to Europe she invited me kindly to his house if I pass through her city.
I cycled through Pyrenees and I entered to Spain from North East and directly I cycled to Girona, where Marta is living.

Cycling through Pyrenees

May
01

The reason I decided to go through Pyrenees goes back to the time when I was in Paris, with Ali Mohanna we were looking for a restaurant and finally we decided to eat in an old restaurant from 1685. we were there to experience Paris ambiance. An Irish couple was next to us and we began to talk. Fidel and Philip ..a lovely one. When we were going to leave restaurant I gave them my card and they kindly invited me to stay with them if I pass through their town. I came back home and looked at the map,..I knew which I will be in Biaritz which is on the south west of France and it was exactly in the same level south but east and to get through I should go through Pyrenees, a range of mountain which stretched all the way from west to the east between France and Spain. My way of traveling is just to go with no information and no fixed plan. Just let see what is happening and follow it.

Paris to the south of France

May
01

I left Paris by train to Tours, a city on the Luire valley. Again the reason for me to get there was a friend. Always friends and people are the one who make a route for me.
I met Myriam 6 years ago in Varanasi-India while walking along the Gangues at night. I was with Diego my Brazilian friend and in sudden hips of Indian guy attacked her. They were pulling her scarf and she was screaming..it was one of the most hardest moments in my journey. We ran to her and pulled her out of the crowd.
we were all sad and angry…now 6 years later I was going to meet her again but in a very peaceful situation. I was so happy to see her again. I left the train and began to cycle along the Luir river.

These days I am focusing on the association ( www.weneedtrees.net ) to start in Iran. We have a great progress here in Iran and soon I will go to Switzerland to do some work there with our board members.
I need to commute between Iran and Switzerland quite often in coming months to make sure things working properly.
But I am just missing my bike and hopefully soon I will find a chance to ride it at least for a little while.
