After a couple of days rest and sightseeing it was time to leave Istanbul and head east.
We took the ferry out of Istanbul which is a lot quicker than trying to fight your way thru the traffic of Istanbul, which has one rule NO RULES !!! its every man or woman for yourself !!
It also looks like it's compulsory to drive whilst using a mobile phone, being speaking or texting on it !
We did hit bad weather and decided to stop at a Motel, at £9 per night I wasn't complaining.
The following morning saw us split up and finally met at Goreme in Cappadocia, the home of the caves and fairy stacks.
I have decided to have a few days here because there is so much to see and do. The people are so friendly and cant do enough for you.
Tomorrow I plan to take the bike out minus the camping gear and do a 100 mile loop of all the attractions, then head North East towards the Georgian border :-)
