Yozgat – Sivas – Erzincan – Erzurum (674 km)




We woke up at 06:00 to a superb weather. Sunny and not so cold. The hotel prepared early breakfast for us. We hit the road and rode in thick fog for a while.





Yozgat - Erzurum road is fantastic. With good asfalt, fast twists and endless skies.





Dancing a little bit to beat the cold in Kizildag Pass.



We arrived to Erzurum around 17:00. After deciding to stay at the Palandoken Ski Resort, on the way i saw Mete's rear had a flat. Since we were in the city center, i looked for a tire shop but no chance. We rolled up the sleeves.





We were on the road in 40 minutes, including 10 minutes answering ridiculous questions of the children passing by.
We checked in the Hotel Palan and head back to the city for cag kebab. There are alot of places but we were told to eat at GelGor.
I tried to beat the record of Sinan who ate 33 skewers. It was not so long i understood that they hung his photo for a reason. I could only eat 6.



Kadayif Dolmasi was delicious too.



We made a little interview with the owner.



With stomachs full we returned to the hotel and to bed.
