Sounds good to me.....

Are you coming directly from Norway?? If so, we could meet up around Munich or something....
if not, Rijeka will be fine.

Anyways........ I'll send you a PM so we can discuss details...

cheers...

Thumbs up Good

Hi All,

It is a good choice with very nice places and views. Not too hot, kind people.

Do not stick to main road only. Go up to road mountains which we call Yayla (plateau).
Some can be: Ayder (Camlihemsin-Rize) try hot springs there, Uzungol (Trabzon), Hemsin (Rize again).

Sumela Monastery is a must definitely through Macka at Trabzon.

Eat freshly cooked corn, fresh and cheap fish, Akcaabat Kofte, Fresh hazelnut when you are there..

Enjoy

Turkey in August

Hi All

Well, our plan is coming together, and I offer it up for anyone who wants to meet up. We are going to cheat a bit by getting the Optima motorail train from Villach (Austria) to Edirne (Turkey), which means we will be in Istanbul late pm Thursday 14 August. From there it will be a ride around the Sea of Marmara to Gallipoli, across into Greece & towards Thessalonika, then up into Macedonia, Kosovo, across into Albania, up into Montenegro and Croatia, probalby turning up near Dubrovnik around 21 August. Route back to UK from there is very flexible & not yet decided, but we have to be back at the latest pm 30 August.

There will be 2 of us, on a black R1100GS and an R1150R, both on UK plates but I will be flying a small Spanish flag!

Hi Trooper
I don't know if you can buy insurance at the Turkish border. However; I am insured with Carole Nash in UK. They have given me a green card (a proper green card, coloured green, not just a letter saying the policy covers you for all sorts of countries etc) but I had to specifically ask them for it. The green card will cover me for just about every country in SE Europe including Turkey. It didn't cost me any extra either.

you can get your insurance at the border for less than 10 quid. They didnt like my Carol Nash Green Card so I ended up having to pay anyway.

Cheers,

Andy

Metin,
That's very kind of you. We will arrive Istanbul on the evening of 14 August, will try to get to Sultanahmet square and look you up.
