On the road again and into Asia Minor
Finally set off from Istanbul yesterday having spent a few days getting visas and carousing. Travelling with a fellow Brit for a few days along the Black Sea coast. In order to avoid the worst of the traffic we got a ferry to the top of the Bosphorus then headed out. Tried to follow a road that wasn't on all the maps (dotted line connection, no good ever came of them!) which was not a good idea... Road petered out to a track and less. Ended up camping near what would've been a perfect beach if it weren't for assorted rubbish. Woken up in the night by wolves howling at each other. In the morning we paw the paw prints of one a few feet away in the sand. Spent today slogging into strong headwinds and over a lot of hills. Currently camped up by another beach that we were directed to by some guys in a van. They had been heading to China but are now on the way to Africa. Nice chaps, cooked us a great meal!
