    Hi Venturer,
    <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    My holyday starts July 4<SUP>th</SUP>, but coming all the way from <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:City w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Holland</st1:place></st1:City> it will take me a while to get to your region.
    Have you got any plans about how long you guys are going to be on the road?

    If you are well on your way by the time I get over there, I might still join you along the way.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    How’s the riding over there right now by the way? Heard <st1:City w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Istanbul</st1:place></st1:City> got some snow last week.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>

    Ride safe<o:p></o:p>

    We plan for a fortnight (a bit more or less). But I want to meet you on the Turk-Greek border. It will be better this way. We shall start our ride when you are here. I think I will be able to see you here on 7th July.
    I live in Tekirda&#287; (close to border) though I am from &#304;stanbul. And snow has started again this morning.

    Sounds great, that gives me about 4 days, which should be around 650km a day, sounds do-able. Maybe I can even get a day off early.

    Don't worry about that. Take it easy. Ride safe and that's more important than everything.

    Thanks so much for posting the wonderful pictures. I love Turkey and Istanbul...the most important city in the world for over a thousand years. And the only city in the world located on two continents! I have been lucky to visit your country and city twice.

    Glad that you have liked my report. As for &#304;stanbul; I totally agree with you. I love my city and I miss it as I am living away from it. :cry
    Looking forward to riding with you along one day. Take care and ride safe.
    P.S. Welcome aboard.
