Familiar faces from MoldowaSeptember 11, 2020 in Turkey ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C
Today, we started on quiet secondary roads, passed through Urfa with its small market streets and arrived in Sigacik after some 30km. Sigacik is a tourist town, but not too big. It's beautifully located in a bay and the atmosphere was nice, so we had our breakfast on a bench in the harbour. We found a bakery that sold yummy rye bread and had olives with it that we got from Erdal the other day.
Then we continued on secondary roads until we reached Cumhuriyet where we had to go on the main road again. From here, cycling was a bit of a fight as the road was busy and we basically passed one ugly town after the other. The sea looked awesome though, so we decided to cycle no longer than 1pm and find a campground at the beach. At the campground, we met Alexander and Olga, a couple from Moldova travelling by motorcycle who we had met on another campground further North about a week ago. What a small world! To celebrate, we decided to have a BBQ and Alexander took me on his motorbike to buy some meet from the butcher's in the next town.Read more
