A usual time-out at weekend with many pics.

Hi!you all....This time my report comes with a selection pics from two of my recent trips.And I like sharing them with you.
Time to enjoy my photos now.

I decided to get to those radars in the background but failed:(



Ruins ahead but I don't knowwhose?Might belong to Thracians

Deep into the woods







Scenic one!Down,GPS shows a trail which I suddenly decided to take...

We are really fu..ing the nature.In the middle of nowhere,how came all these blocks!





I crossed this creek.I managed but got drenched.
Almost naked.Nobody around, except birds watching and singing.

Poor bike











Taking a breather....Watching around....






These mushrooms,being collected by the villagers.5 to 15 bucks per kilo
To be used in medicine as well as cosmetics.



Second part on the way.

How heavily it was raining that day.No dogs and cats left in the sky.But That was the weather and trip I was dreaming about.That was an experience that I had been expecting for long: riding about 170 km under heavy rain.A jeep accompanied me on the way but honestly speaking; there were times I used to think about my friend's proposal: he suggested me accompanying him in his jeep but I rejected.
Enough with words.Let's start...




My turn to take shots of that old fart Landy.

Roads sometimes getting worse and tricky




What a panorama and a shot

Charcoal for barbecues









We went further to the abandoned mine.








I hope you have liked the photos.
Ride safely and happily.

I'd assumed after the non-stop rain we had in the UK that everyone else had a sunny summer.

Looks like I was wrong!!

What's the explanation for the marks on the tree trunks, are they from flood water?

Thanks for posting.

Thx for your intimate reply.The Black Sea was stormy that day and I was waiting for long for that rain as well during the ride.
Nice trails and roads to follow here in Turkiye.Hope to see you here one day.

Hey Gadget Boy,you weren't the first to reply this time
Yep,you're right.No sunshine this time,but I am learning to be a real ADVrider
Riding takes me away from that hectic life in the city and I forget everything each time I'm on the go.I feel myself like a new-born baby.
Thx for the reply Gadget Boy.

The part where I live is between the Black Sea and the Marmara Sea
(in Thrace).One can witness four seasons here.Sometimes mild and sometimes very harsh,add snow avalanches,too
Some parts of these dusty and rocky trails are in mining areas where they have been digging to get what is essential for glass making.
As regards to flood water,you are dead right.And some minor bridges had been destroyed due to the flood and heavy rain.
