In Gerze we stayed at Elifs and Yalcins almost 100 years old mansion. Yalcin doesn’t like photos, so his best friend is on the picture.

Very nice bread in a very nice bakery, but sadly just beside the autobahn.

The cycling these days was actually really bad, because their is only one road and no alternative. And this road is a big highway with a lot of traffic. Sadly it stays like this until Batumi in Georgia.

But we met a lot of nice people. Hitchhikers from German on their way to Georgia.

Sorry the picture is bad, but these three guys escorted us to their homes in Perşembe. We were really lucky, because there was a big storm at night.

In Görele we were intercepted by Hasan from warmshowers.org, who already hosted over 400 cyclists. In the evening we went to the town and participated the free fast-breaking Ramadan food.
