Saturday 6th October. An end of term feeling as this was my last day of cycling before a few days with Christine in Istanbul and then flying to India.
However the wind was horrendous much much worse than yesterday. I struggled through to Bandirma with legs like jelly.
Reaching the ferry for Istanbul I was told that it was cancelled due to the wind!
I eventually found a bus that went to Istanbul and which would also take my bike. This was an interesting experience as everyone spoke only Turkish. This involved a 3 hour wait for the bus and then a 6 hour journey. Finally arrived Istanbul at 2am.
Not exactly what I had envisaged for the day when I set off.
