This autumn/winter/next spring Iím doing a little tour in instalments around south-eastern Europe and western Turkey. In October I rode to Bulgaria and parked my bike at Dougís in Idilevo. Iíll return there on 22December and head towards Turkey on 23rd. Iíll probably head for the Black Sea coast at Burgas and then head south, ideally avoiding any snow.
Iím very likely to be in Istanbul for the Christmas period. For New Year, who knows?
I travelled through wonderful that part of the world in late 1999 and itíd be great to check out some old haunts ( http://www.thebrightstuff.com/ch2.htm
) and ride some new roads, very likely to be hugging the coast where it might be a little warmer (?!)
Anyone in that part of the world and this time and want to drink a beer or cup of tea?
