BANG – country number 12: Turkey! An explosion of people, noise, smells, chaos, intense daytime heat and frosty mornings…who thought cycling a few kilometres over a border could make such a difference?
Riding into the dark to find a spot to camp we were intrigued to find a Shell petrol station decorated with old bicycles. It turned out that the owner had created a small campsite at the back of the petrol station for cyclists to use for free! Finding somewhere to stop for the night had been easier than we thought. I think we were the first people to stay there in quite a while as we had to beat down the weeds to get through.
It was a night filled with yet more extremely cute furry friends 🐶.
