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. 


 

Paris to Brussels and back to Paris

Apr
16

 

When I arrived to Paris, I was kind of disappointed as all my friends where away. I was so happy to meet them but no one was there actually. It was quite difficult as also I didn’t have a place in Paris. Staying in hotel is not fun at all for me even though it is a 5 stars hotel. It is totally against my personal journey which is going through people and their lives. Always I have been asked from people everywhere, if I miss home or not? My answer was so clear with no need of thinking which is NO!! It was also a question for me too that what is the reason I don’t miss home? I was thinking it might be because I love traveling. ! that’s for sure but the main reason is I have home everywhere, I always live with people who I love, who I care and they do the same.
The second night I moved to stay with Segolene who I met 2 years ago in Baku. It was wonderful to meet her after 2 years and share some little time with her and her boyfriend. They are lovely and so nice people.
They live in a little tiny flat and also because of Easter holidays they were going to visit their parents, so I had no choice but staying in hotel. Next day I moved to hotel again

From Geneva to Paris

Apr
07

 

Ron told me he will take me out of the Geneva by his car. It was a nice offer to get out of the town by car and start riding my bike somewhere on the road.
That’s why I left quite late. We were making joke over my plan which what time I would leave. I was telling Ron which I am going to start around 9:30 and he smiled and said: on which time zone? Swiss time, Iranian time or African? This means on Swiss time I would leave on 9:30, on Iranian ones I may leave around 10:30 or so and on African time I will leave anyway!!! I was happy to take African time as it was so flexible and easy one. That’s why we left around 10:30.
he drove me out of the city and when we drove around 30km out of the village where they live, I found a very nice road and just wanted to be on my bike to ride it through that road. So he dropped me there and after I checked the map we said goodbye and I began to ride.

Marcia kindly invited me to stay with them. they were lovely and I had a wonderful time with them

Last time when I was in Biel-Bienne, Renate introduced me to a friend of her who is teaching in one public school in Biel. I couldn’t stay longer that time also in a short notice she couldn’t organize a time for our workshop. So we planned for Monday 18 of March to return and have our workshop there. From Geneva I took a train to Biel and I left my bike there to come here and visit the school. we started at 9 am with 2 classes and after a short break there was another class which was kind of international one.
Just few students but we had a very nice conversation and at the end of class we planted a tree together. During the lunch time Pia and I went to a restaurant where elderly people live and Renate also joined us. After lunch I had another class in school and again 2 classes merged to have a longer session. a

Last days of cycling through Alps

Mar

My journey lately in Switzerland was full of moving from one point to another. I had to move a lot to visit different schools, applying for visa and also planning my journey ahead to the direction of France.
I was in Thun again with Renate and Martin. I just stayed there for a night and then I went to Berne with just a backpack.
I was there for a night and again I went to Biel where I had a school to visit and some new friends to make who are like a family for me now. Much closer than a friend.
Klaus’s sister lives in Biel with her family and I had a chance to meet them and stay with them while being in Biel and of course visiting her school for my project

Back to Switzerland to continue life on the road

Mar

I flow back to Zurich after 4 weeks.
exactly 4 weeks I was there, in Asian side of Anatolian city, Istanbul. I was staying with Amy a friend Rachelle. However she was in US 2 weeks and I was there alone with two cats, a very nice one and an annoying one who just kills your nerves. But I was ok with it and I was doing my work in the room, so I more was feeling pity for the cat who likes to play and didn’t have good company to play.
my flight was at 14:05 on February 19 and I had to carry all my bags again in the same way as I went there. I had to check in just one bag up to 23km, so I had to grab all my bags with my mattress and use a whole pack of tape to hold it.  Then it was an un convenient thing to carry plus my camera bag, handle bar bag and a plastic bag!!
honestly it was hard and the worth thing I had to change public transport 4 times!! I had no way!!

WE NEED TREES
On Friday, 8th of March 2013, Mohammad visited our school in Biel. The students were already excited to meet him, because we've seen his film about his work on Monday. So Mohammad and I came together early in the morning - by bike.
All in all Mohammad talked with three different groups and the students seemed to be very touched by his personality and his journey. Especially the pictures about the children having almost nothing to eat or being infected by HIV touched their hearts

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.
