On the 26th April we arrived in Turkey. We have never been to Turkey before so we didnt know much about the country. All that we knew was that from a cycling point of view, Turkey is rated as the 7th best country in the world for long distance cycle travellers. As I write we have now been in Turkey for over a week. The hospitality we have heard so much about is actually true. So far, we have met many kind and generious people. There are also many beautiful places to visit and explore.
