Hi there,

We’re sitting on colourful persian carpets in a teahouse of Shiraz in Iran. It became a bit complicated to send some news in that last weeks. We finally uploaded online our photos from the two amazing months we spent in Turkey.

Near Demre, Southern Turkey

You can now have a look here at our photos of Turkey.
We spend autumn (october and November) slowly heading south, crossing Western Turkey then following the Aegean coastal roads across wonderful hilly landscapes with a very long history, many ruins from the ancient greek cities and temples. We cycled then along the Mediterranean coast, dotted with sarcophagus and lycian tombs carved in the rock. Southern Turkey was among the most beautiful places we’ve crossed in our lives. I was delightful to cycled along the pristine water, share the hospitality of locals, fill our stomach with delicious pastries and camp in the nature, watching sunset for hours on the sea.

Holy Shrine in Qom, Iran

Our original plan was to cycle in Eastern Turkey and reach Tabriz from there but it would have been crazy to attempt to cross the Anatolian mountains in December, when roads are covered with snow and nights can reach minus 25 degrees. After hesitating for many weeks, we decided to go back to Istanbul and take a plane there to Tehran. Since we are in Iran, we had snow and freezing nights in the north so we cycled south as fast as we could to reach better temperatures… You can already have a look at some of our first photos of Iran. Some more will be added very soon =)
