The route taken on DAY 2

DAY 3
I woke up early that morning to look what's around. I had camped between the beach and a stream.
The nature was so peaceful.








BMW,waking up.

And ready to serve in anyways.I love this bike!

Yesterday's log. Not a long mileage.

All packed up and I am ready to go.


The better the roads are getting, the more I am enjoying. I was tired of riding for the last two days, especially yesterday.


Another stream, meeting the Black Sea

As I was riding, I braked suddenly because I had seen a beast sunbathing on the beach.


A French couple with their small kids were travelling along the coast.Their destination is Georgia and then to Armenia. We chatted for a while.

About 20 ltr per 100 km.An economical vehicle!

We said ''Goodbye'' to each other and I went on riding


I was approaching to another big city named Sinop.

Diogenes was from Sinop. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diogenes_of_Sinope











Overlooking the city


And more from the citycentre



These are very popular here
An Ottoman Galley

A Frigate named ''Ertugrul''

And look at these

Then, I made my way for another campsite. I found a good one. There four caravans parking (a Brit, two Italians and a German Family)
And a German cyclist couple, touring the world for three years on their beasts. We met, ate and drank together. We talked about bikes and routes taken and to take. I helped them choose and buy their tyres. We ordered them on the phone and the next morning, I packed up everything and left for the next stop.

Wow

Very dramatic and impressive way you have captured the geology, the history and the current life there.

All neat and tidy inside

My neighbours at the camping spot. Two old friends friends in a caravan. And they are German. They invited me and we chatted around a coffee table after dinner.
The pictures reminded me sometime in late 90s I was camping in a similar tent near Marmaris, my neighbours who pack every possible stuff and a 4 room tent and a fridge to go camping, couldn't believe their eyes that me and my girl were to stay in that little "hole".
They offered us to stay in "the guest room" of their tent... Of course we refused...

Great ride! Great pictures! Hope to see some nice pictures of Trabzon area ;) (My family town)

Morning Dave. Thank you very much. I bought a lot of things with me, especially clothes. Nevertheless, that was good. But experience is the best teacher. Next time, it will be different.
Yes, I met a lot of tourists touring. And we chatted for long hours.
The trip to Syberia is a dream ride. But I am keeping some records and possible routes for ''one day'' Who knows?
Same here, boiling here, too.
Take care and ride safe.

Thanks econan. My tent is best fow two, much smaller than a 4-room one.
I have so many to post here and it's so difficult to choose. Right now, I am on holiday with family members. I rarely have internet.
There are some Trabzon pics as well, including Sumela Monastery, The Long Lake and those highlands, too.
Your family? From Trabzon? You are a Turk?

I don't want to hijack your beautiful thread... Please continue.

I had exactly same size tent as yours, but for "memur" campers it looked like a small hole compared to their huge tents They had three of these with a full size Arcelik fridge in it interconnected. The lady was saying: "Vah vah vaaah, evladim gece bogulursunuz siz bu cadirin icinde! Gelin bizde kalin" (Translation: Vah vah vaaah, [it is a pity sound that turks make] my son, you would suffocate in that tent at night, please come and stay over in our tent...)

Yes, I'm a Turk. ;)
