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.

Drive safe and stay happy and healthy........

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
