10. Turkey

Phew! Made it through Russia...

After catching a rust bucket ferry (I slept on deck) from Sochi in Russia we arrived in Trabzon in teh North East of Turkey. We loved Turkey. The people friendly, the driving sane, the countryside varied and Istanbul an amazing experience! Only problem is that we didn't have GPS for Turkey and this made finding our way difficult, particularly in Istanbul - an enormous city. But the friendliness of the people meant there was always help at hand, even if it meant going a long way out of their way to guide us. Our accommodation meant we could walk to Sultanhamet (the Grand Bazaar and Blue Mosque) and explore the incredible vibrance.
