Syria, Jordan, Israel.?

I'm in northern Greece now heading for the southwest coast of Turkey and into the other countries maybe. Is there anyone wanting to join up for a few days or more, I'm camping most of the time and on a BMW1150GS. I'm hoping to be back in the UK by May 7. Text 0032 477 739 713

We will be in Syria in a few days (only a week though) and then to Jordan for about 30 days before doing Egypt.

Brace yourself for Turkey...its been raining for 3 days solid!!

Lets hope you have better weather

Hi Rinus

What border crossing will you be using? We need to get in without a carnet

We were thinking of the one close to Yayladagi...apparently very quiet

I feel your chill!

I just did the reverse - up from Aleppo through Turkey - and it was the most rain and cold I've had in quite some time (north through Africa the past 9 months). I hadn't ridden in rain since Mozambique back in October.

I'm on the Mani penninsula, southern Greece, where its sunny for now.

I forgot the name but it's the one close to Antakia. I didn't have a carnet and it cost me about a eighty euros plus thirty for the visa. And two hours going from one office to the other. It was just me and two amerikan guys there, they had been waiting sinds early morning.
I've been in Aleppo sinds yesterday and look around a bit more tomorro,then, of to Crak du chevallier, see if the camping is open there.
