trying to reach turkey from egypt, any way possible
Hi, We are 4 motorcyclists from Cape Town stuck in Aswan, 19.02.2012, waiting for the barge to bring our bikes from Wadi Halfa. We're trying to plan the way ahead through jordan and syria to Turkey, over the next week or so. Any updated advice and personal experience is welcome w.r.t. access to syria, visa processing in Egypt, eg. how long it takes, if at all; having GPS, cameras, laptop.
No worries, Turkish menalines will start transferring cars,trucks and bikes between alexandria and mersin very soon...tomorrow evening will post all details here as told by the company mngr. 5 days ago...
It was planned to start the ferry services between 2 countries by first week of last december..
Hope nomore delays happen.
Keep fingers crossed until Feb.27 Mersin-Alexandria and Feb.28 Alexandria-Mersin.!!!
nomore news for today..let's keep fingers crossed for nomore delays and let's keep this thread at first page as this information is very important to all friends who are stuck in the area..
I will continue updating situation 7/24 as ı get current information from the sealines company main office mngr.
1-you will be travelling together with 120 trucks which will continue driving to gulf countries full of goods.
2-after completing customs formalities,you will drive in and out the ship yourself.
3-cabin upstairs with beds will also be available at extra charge.
4-it will take 24 hours between mersin and alexandria.
But pay attention pls...
make early reservations as soon as they start... demand may be more than the capasity and be strong to fight with egypt customs!!! Hope new system will be more easy there.
After landing better write all your experiences here which will be certainly very useful for the following travellers..
they promised to send the ticket prices by Email...
will copy here as soon as I get the mail.
Dialing systems for Turkish telephones...:
(Still we got mails and see that some mistakes have been made in dialing)
if you call from outside Turkey forget the zero at the beginning.
if you call from other Turkish cities
if you call from mersin
continue keeping fingers crossed until it starts, who knows what will happen next day in the area.
still very hard to reply that question...today evening called directly owner of the ship and company, even he is not sure what may happen tomorrow..
But he is very keen to start running between mersin and alexandria at once...So many trucks are waiting around mersin and sure he will earn good money.
You can also ask them or mersin agent personally.
Sincerely our prays with you and others who are stuck in Egypt..Wish we could do more for you..
Wish you all the best.
Thanks for your quick reply. Do you think it would make sense to drive to Mersin now; I mean, do you think that the chnnces to get our ticket (if there RoRo will depart) will be higher than when we try to arrange that from a distance?
By the way, I understood another RoRo will depart from Mersin to Alexandria on 12 March, but no passengers are allowed.
hello all... this is good news. We have been in Egypt several months having motorcycled from South Africa and en route to China. We visited Israel and Jordan as a side trip but did not proceed through Syria as we are a Chinese and a British and between us pissed off either a government artillery gunner or a terrorist/rebel.
We have a following of over a million in China and writing for several adventure/4x4 publications/ TV shows and so keen to get on.
We will ring booking office and enquire whether two bikes can get aboard.
