Hi,

Not so much travel so not so much to post here since I have started my working life... But keep posted... Things can always change ;)

In the meantime, I wish the blog might still help you traveling. I will still be available for any question!

Cheers,
Simon

Iznik

This week, I had a wonderfull surprise... This is the story in short...

I received an email in February from 2 French guys looking for an adress in Istanbul to send some tyres... They needed to change theirs on their road from Paris to Beijing by moto.

On Monday, I met Guillaume and Erwan and we went to pick up the tyres in a post office. Then, while drinking some beers, they proposed me to go with them for couple of days...

Here the adventure starts... From Sultanhamet... On Tuesday...

Unfortunatelly, I don't have so much pictures but it is better than nothing :)...




After a very nice crossing of the Bosphorus and driving on a motorway along the Marmara Sea, we passed by a nice road to the Iznik lake...







Guillaume...



Me, and Erwan...












In the evening, we found a place by the lake to camp...







We took a short (very short) bath...



Time to cook...


And to enjoy the heat of a fire...





The day after, we continue the road by driving first around the Iznik lake... In the middle of the oliver grove... Then, direction the south, where my friend left me in Belicek where I took a bus to go back to Istanbul...



I would like to thanks Erwan and Guillaume a lot for this awesome experience... my first one by moto... Follow them on http://parispekin2008.canalblog.com/... They will be on the road untill September...


BIG UP TO THEM !!!



By the way, this is also the opportunity to take position on an event presently happening...


" VIVE LE TIBET LIBRE !!! "
