Mountains and the sea

Always up
posted on 3 Aug 2022 Anakara — 6 Jul 2022 Always up

Merhaba arkadaşlarım! Since our last update, we cycled from Istanbul to the Mediterranean Sea, followed the coastline for a while, took a bus to Ankara and then cycled through Central Anatolia to reach the summit of Mount Nemrut, before arriving in Mesopotamia by crossing the famous Eufrat.

Greece to Türkiye

Istanbul skyline

It has been four weeks since we left Thessaloniki. Since then, many things have happened. Mainly because we changed countries, from Greece to Turkey or, more correctly, Türkiye. The hospitality and generosity since then have been crazy, and it’s getting more intense by the day. There are so many stories to tell, more than I could write down, but here are a few of them.

Mount Olympus

Last week we started the second part of our trip as we handed over the keys of the camper van to my parents and we left Athens on our bicycles. Next significant stop: Istanbul (or, Konstantinopouli for the Greeks).

Three weeks Romania

Tineke and fresh snow

Parked just next to the border of Serbia, but still in Romania, it is time to reflect on our three-week stay here. I had been in Romania before and was looking forward a lot to exploring a bit more. Although, I can say that I still don't like (most of) the dogs here.

Winter cycling

Just possible to keep cycling
posted on 6 Feb 2022 Ærø — 31 Dec 2021 Just possible to keep cycling

Just before Christmas, it was time to leave the family and start cycling again. Back to the camper, albeit with a big detour to Copenhagen. It had been quite comfortable there. Luckily it took only about 400 metres before adventure kicked in again. I found out my chain had cracks all over, and was about to break. Plus, it started snowing!

Denmark by shelter

Forest ride
posted on 27 Jan 2022 Drammelstrup — 18 Dec 2021 Forest ride

In the evening of 8 December we started preparing ourselves for another bike tour. We had found a good parking spot for the camper van with a super friendly owner of a camping shop in the north of Germany, next to the border of Denmark. He allowed us or, even better, proposed to us to park on their parking lot, hidden between all the other campers. Excellent! This gave us some peace of mind after what happened during our last bike tour.

This is not the first update I wish I had to write on our trip but I need to get this off my chest.
