Ordu was a really classy place indeed. We found a nice cheap hostel (with wi-fi) and enjoyed the fruits of coastal Ordu. It has a vibrant allure to it with its non-tacky lighting and very impressive coastal walkway (a place to bring your significant other for sure)...Anyway....We digress!!!
Paul decided to try out couch-surfing in Samsun today and head the 140km early morning. Couchsurfing is a idea where fellow travelling enthusiasts share their houses/apartments/flats with each other. It is an absolute must for anyone thinking of global touring. Check it out www.couchsurfing.com.
This has been the longest tunnel we have cycled so far (approx 4km)
A fishing-net maker - He also bought the Brian and Mike tea
Holland?? - Na still in Turkey folks
Seagul got in the way of this one
Poor turn-outs at training seem to be common in Turkey also!!!.
Mike and Brian look for a camping spot - Bears, wolves and kangols are huge camping enthusiasts aren't they??
This week I will be mostly eating.....
Brian piles on the clothes for the harsh cold night. Temperatures drop below freezing even at this time of the year.
Paul on route to Samsun and to meet a total stanger named "Can"
Another harbour town - Outside Fatsa
She's a bigg'in
These guys were having an arguement about the horse on the back of the pick-up (just had to watch proceedings for 5 minutes!!!)
There is a decrative landmark like this in every town/city - The kid in the foreground went straight into the water geysers just sec's later!!!)
....but what has this cupid in store for us boys???? (about 55km from Samsun)
Paul's couchsurfing hosts, Can and Osam...Great guys
Paul's room complete with double bed...I thought this was "couch" surfing!!!!
