Travelogue of Omidvar Brothers
Jomhuri Publications is to issue the journals and travelogue of Omidavar brothers, two bold Iranian brothers who dared to step in the most remote places of the world propagating their motto 'All different-All relative'.
IBNA: In 1954, Omidvar brothers began their seven-year-long adventure from Tehran to Mashad and then to Afghanistan on their motorcycle. Four year later, they were on top of the snow-covered hills of the North Pole, dwelling with the Eskimos in severe northern climate. They were the first Asians who saw the South Pole with a group of Chileans.
They crossed all six continents on Earth. They felt the sultry sun of Africa and bone-chilling snow in the poles.
They came back to Iran in 1961 but could not endure the suspense derived from their desire to see new places, hence leaving the country in the next three months to explore the unseen.
According to the book, they began their second trip on a two-cylinder Citroen car. The trip took three years.
In their travel they accumulated a big bulk of photographs and films they took during their explorations.
They brought with themselves a large number of objects from the places they visited which are being kept in a museum named after the Omidvars in the Sa'adatabad Cultural Complex.
Publication of the book is done by Jomhuri and it is marketed by the Pakta distribution center.
