Our motorbike travel in Turkey
Turkey has always represented for us the first step in visiting the Eastern World...we have been thinking about asia for a long time, and as first destination we found spontaneous to think at this country, the old Costantinopolis, the Mesopotamia
As usual we design our path entirely by road, and in this case we chose the shorter way, passing through Slovenia - Croatia - Serbia - Bulgary to finally reach Turkey.
The itinerary was a circular path, that led us to touch the Egeo shores and push us toward the East, without omit the Kappadokia; but we were curious above all about the eastern part of thwe country, those less known and less travelled area, where we hope to find more genuineness in places and people.
And now that the journey is finished, we can really confirm that Turkey did not disappointed us, we have always found hospitality and kindness that astonish us and make us so happy to have visited that country. People are always kind and ready to help, pushed by willingness to know and curiosity.
A good lesson in life, that is very usuful to "us", western people...
Going through the country we found a wide variety of landscapes that make us think that Turkey is really a bridge, not so unreal, between Europe and Asia.
Only a suggestion for bikers....is not always so warm as you can think, at least if you go east, because often you have to cross high mountain passes, and the wind will always be your travel companion.
The only thing you have to bring with you is the deside to travel, and take it slow...taking advantage on every possible meeting with local people...because also if you speak different languages, is really easy to understand each other...a smile will do!
