Hello to all. Newbie from Turkey

I've just found my self here. I have two small bikes,a naked 250 and a chinese built 150cc so called cruiser. I usually travel with my wife but since the baby came we can't find any chance to travel or camp .
We live in Turkey and travelled most parts of it. I see many travellers passing by. If you need a place to stay or fix your bike ı have the tools and a free bed . The wife and I are happy to have guests. I'm on the Mediterranean coast . I live in Mersin and you're all welcome.

Welcome

Welcome indeed. I think you may be taken up on your offer if the rumoured ferry starts from Mersin.

As it happens, me and the boss are heading to walk the Lycian way on Thursday, so I'm hoping it warms up a bit over there.

and what a nice gesture on your first post. I was traveling through Turkey last year and I am hoping to get back there soon.

You will know you are alive now that you have a baby.

Good luck.....enjoy

Welcome to the site it is an excellent resource for information and making contacts. A friend and I passed through your home city a couple of years ago and thoroughly enjoyed our experiences in Turkey; I am looking forward to returning to Turkey in the not too distant future. Do you ever foresee yourself venturing to the chilly north of Europe?

I think north is too cold for me.Our winter weather is the spring or summer in most parts so I usually wander around Mediterranean.. But may be in the future.

Welcome to the forum. Very nice invitation. Turkey seems like a nice country to travel. Capadocie (is that spelled correctly?) is one of my favorites.
