The GPS map recorded can be found here.

The decision is final and we were not going to be put off because of reasons such as:
Last day changed rear wheel bearings
No ship on Thursday
Spent the night in custody in Turkey
Sent back because of expired passport
Lost 4 days from the plan trip
Running to fix passports, catch ships, taxi, no insurance, walk for 1.2 kms etc

This days route from Tasucu to Alanya

So we start the journey in the afternoon going on the sea side road towards Alanya.
It wasnt long before we hit another problem, they decided to bomb down a mountain and cut the only road there unless you wanted to go back plenty of Kms. We waited for 3 hours to clear the one side of the road so we can continue our trip.

The closed road and the mountain side on the road.

We continue and stop for a photo

We arrive near midnight covering a fair distance in Alanya where we stay in the hotel Ali Baba for 50 Euro a night or more likely for a few hours as we always was up at 5 am and left at 6 am to leave some traffic and the hot sun behind.

Outside the hotel early in the morning and some photos from Alanya.

To maybe be continued some other time ;)
