“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins

Day 139 - 20th September, Sunday, Turkey. Bayram day 1.

Ant spent the morning putting in new spark plugs, clearing out the tool boxes from the rain and dirt of the last 200miles and generally tinkering with technical things to get Bee ready for the final push to the finish line.
The English whom we met at the last campsite (Tom and Pat) have arrived today too. They made it over the mountains in the dry and are now in the same position as us... waiting for a ferry to Cyprus.
Logged on to the internet today and discovered that Liam and Carly who we met at the Festival back in Spain, passed us on a bus on Friday in Turkey!!!! The world really is a small place if you travel it.
