Getting Back On The Road
After nearly 18 months living and working in Istanbul, I decided it was time to hit the road again.I wanted to feel the wind in my hair and get some dirt back under my finger nails before I started writing a book about my journey to the city.
That journey was made over the course of a year and 4,500km all covered on foot. This little trip, however, was just 750km and with the addition of the two wheels of my bicycle. There were still a few stories and encounters to share though.
My friends at The Guide Istanbul were interested in my bicycle adventure and kindly published an article I sent them about it: 'Turning pedals through Turkey'.
More photos and tales from my cycling journeys, both in Turkey and through Central Asia, are always waiting on my blog.
For now though, it's back to the keyboard for me as I continue my efforts to write the book about my walk to Istanbul :)
