We arrived in Istanbul this afternoon after riding across Sebria and Bulgaria and just had a nice diner with my parents (sympa la retraite...). Finally had some nice weather on the way and we really enjoyed some of the scenery (especially the montains and monastries at the Serbian border). People were extremely friendly all across but a special mention for the police motorbike squad in Turkey that even asked us to take pictures with us.
We will post a more complete story tomorrow incuding some anecdots on border crossings, communist style hotels, petrol stations in Serbia, almost running out of petrol on the highways, Turkish trucks traveling across Europe...
