Maybe

Hi

I was cheated out of a trip to Syria last spring and am trying to do it this year. The plan is to travel through Europe, to Croatia, Greece, Turkey and then head into Syria/Jordan. The way the Arab world is behaving, I may not get past Turkey.

I need to see how much money is left in the jar -I might only be able to get to Morocco.

Where are you starting from?

HI

I'll be hitting Turkey in Mid April and heading down the Eastern side into Syira / Jordan doing a loop back up to Western Turkey, then into Iran for a few weeks then back along Northern Turkey. This might not work with your timings I intend to spend about 2.5 months having a good look around. Welcome for others to meet up along the road or travel together for a while.
