My name is Benyamin Rezaei. I was born in Karaj in July 1984. First, I pursued physical education but later on, I enrolled in university for tourism. Ever since then, I have been fortunate enough to explore over 90 countries across 4 different continents. Adventure has always been an integral part of my life and will continue to be so.
For me, travel is a remedy and a form of self-discovery. It’s a way to break free from the mundane and explore the unknown. Traveling and me is like a perfect combination, just like tea and jam, bread and cheese, spring and orange, or Adam and Eve. It’s a natural pairing that can’t be separated.
In 2019, I took the biggest risk of my life and embarked on a journey to tour Europe in my private car, a Peugeot 207. After 48 days of driving, I became the first Iranian to reach the southernmost point in Europe- the strait of Gibraltar. My life motto has always been “Travel, adventure, worship and see the world with your own eyes.”
Since 2010, I’ve been traveling to different parts of Asia including China, Malaysia, India, Turkey, and Dubai. I’ve also been fortunate enough to visit Europe, Africa, and the Americas. However, the most memorable trip for me was the journey with my Peugeot 207 private car that began on July 4th, 2019. After 110 days of traveling, I made history by becoming the first person to reach the most remote point in Europe- the Strait of Gibraltar in southern Spain.
Almost 8 years ago during my memorable trip to Istanbul, I had the pleasure of meeting Tracey, a lovely girl from Australia, while traveling on the train. The train ride from Tabriz to Istanbul lasted for three days, and during this time, Tracey and I developed a strong connection based on compassion. Tracey, with her golden hair, rabbit-like teeth, and ocean-colored eyes, was an adventure tour guide leading a group from Australia to China to explore the Silk Road overland. The journey began in China and took them through Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and Turkmenistan before arriving in Iran. Tracy’s group and I were both on trains heading to Istanbul, with me boarding in Tabriz. This chance encounter with Tracey on the train would change my life forever.
