Author: Balázs Translated by: Pál Capewell We spent two weeks in Tehran, overall. Our friends, whom we got to know through Warmshowers last year, would have loved to have us for an extra week though. Due to our Uzbekistan visa however, we had to depart. We travelled much less in Iran than we planned to; sadly, getting our Chinese visa…

Author: BalázsTranslated by: Balázs Németh At first we would like to apologize because of the lot of the pictures. I could not stop posting. We already have experienced in Turkey, that the long-distance buses are different from Hungarian ones (actually there is no long distance in Hungary). Seats are bigger, space is longer for legs and there is a screen…

Author: Eni Translated by: Mariann Kiszely We registered on the Warmshowers, the „couchsurfing of cyclists” last summer. This is how we got to know Mina and her husband, Habib. The couple from Teheran loves cycling: the have been to Africa and to some countries in Asia, and they spent 3 months on a trip in Europe last summer. We spent…

Author: Balázs Translated by: Éva Kapusi We wasted 3 hours of our lives with the border crossing at Kapikoy. The bureaucracy took an hour and a half and the time difference was the same so by the time we jumped into the saddle again it was already 3:00-3:30. We were descending and everything seemed different again from what we were…

Author: BalázsTranslated by: Balázs Németh Turkey is not equal to cheap trousers, gold jewels and big Bazaars. It is a little European but more Asian feeling and it can’t describe just one short sentence. The country is full of attractions, cultural heritages and has a huge cultural shock which can’t available in other part of Europe, but everything depends on…

Author: Eni Translated by: Alexandra Fadgyas What a long and tiring journey this has been. After 23 hours of being bounced about the train we safely arrived to Tatvan. The trip began in Kayseri. Our bargain train tickets offered us only a little compartment that I must say - was not at all very comfortable. The seats themselves were sufficient…

Author: Balázs Translated by: Magicz Dávid The 10 hours long busride started at 10 p.m., so we thought we will sleep through it, killing two birds with one stone, but it was impossible. The turkish coaches are far more comfortable than the hungarian ones, but to sleep sitting with hanging legs is not so great. Instead, we got some tea,…

Author: Balázs Translated by: Gréta Kojsza This entry came into life with real difficulties. The main reason is probably that we spent only a short time in this country. In the other hand, we didn’t have the chance to meet too many people either. Our acquaintances, who put us up were busy with working, so we didn’t have time to…

Author: EniTranslated by: Gréta Kojsza So we cycled a lot from Edirne to the direction of Silivri and finally reached a small town on the coast. We arrived late at night to Gümüskaya. As only built up beaches can be found we couldn’t set up our tent on the seaside. In the middle of thinking about the next step, a…

Author: BalázsTranslated by: Éva Bognár We spent our very first Turkish day with sightseeing in Edirne (formerly known as Adrianople). Due to have been the capital of the Ottoman Empire, the city has a massive cultural heritage. The best known is the Selimiye Mosque, which had been built for 6 years before it was opened in 1574. The 2nd biggest…
