Cappadocia and onwards into central Turkey

Posted on in category: Uncategorized

What a weird and wonderful place. Since we arrived in the dark we could’t see how fully strange the terrain here was until the morning. The locals built their homes in these strange rock formations hundreds of years ago and still live in them today! We set off again for Georgia, some 800 miles away. [...]


New Windscreen Success!!

Posted on in category: Uncategorized

So we arrived at the windscreen place an hour late but what’s new. As promised they had the new windscreen, however it must have been child labour day as 2 kids removed our old windscreen. While we waited we ate at a kebab restaurant just round the corner. We were not in a tourist area [...]


Mission: New Windscreen

Posted on in category: Uncategorized

Our mission today was head to the next big town to try find a new windscreen. We stopped off for water at a petrol station on the way which happened to have a mechanic. He kindly gave us a card for a windscreen repair place in the town we were heading to and some vague [...]


Beach Camping

Posted on in category: Uncategorized

Today we had planned to visit the hot springs in the ancient town of Hierapolis. However realising we didn’t have time we headed straight for the coast. Coming down from the mountains of central Turkey to the coast we were hit by the hair dryers. This phenomenon is caused by the air being so hot [...]


Istanbul and Mozzy infested waters.

Posted on in category: Uncategorized

I had intended to go back to the Old city this morning before we left however the amazing blinds in the Hotel room tricked me into thinking it was still dark outside when it was actually 11 o’clock. A shame but I can always come back. Once everyone was up we went for breakfast and [...]


Crossing into Turkey and Istanbul

Posted on in category: Uncategorized

The border crossing was easy as the guard was amused by our Gold Telly! The telly is turning out to be less of a hindrance than we first thought as everyone loves it. We got our first taste of Turkish roads after the border and what a road it was. Definitely the best road I [...]


Relaxing in Varna

Posted on in category: Uncategorized

After driving till half 5 we decided to stay in Varna for the day as we didn’t need to checkout of our hotel till the next day. We got some food in the afternoon made by a fantastic microwave technician and headed off down to the beach for a swim followed by a few drinks [...]


The Best Road in the World

Posted on in category: Uncategorized

I’m not usually one for waking up at 5 in the morning but this time was defiantly worth it! Looking down over the road initially a sea of cloud obscured the view of what was below. As the sun slowly came up the mist lifted the rest of the world appeared. Hopefully the pictures can [...]


Vienna, Hungary and Romania (Days 5, 6 & 7

Posted on in category: Uncategorized

Day 5 The day after the drunken swim it was time to head to Vienna the capital of Austria. The border crossing as usual was painless and consisted of driving past a sign that said “Austria” . We hit Vienna and spent about 4 hours driving round trying to find out hotel. We eventually found [...]


En Route to Vienna and Wild Camping

Posted on in category: Uncategorized

We left Prague (much to my disappointment as I would have loved to spend another day to explore the city). We headed for the Osstuary of Bones. A church fittingly decorated with the bones of 40,000 dead men women and children. We then headed towards Vienna and stopped at a Lake to camp for the [...]
