Not much

So from Amasra we moved to this town called Safronbulo, we diceded to go there because the houses there were meant to be very lovely (as said so in the Turkey guide that robin lost i Amasra, oops) but to me the housing were nothing special.

We stayed three nights in this town and just walked and watched the view of the area. By night robin and i stayed in like an old couple and read our books and watched Turkish TV. Really classy stuff!

we did find a nice cheap restrount where we tryed some of the local speciality's, you know like Kibab, cofta and the dream desert Backlava... oh i dream of that sososososo good!

Somewhere els

So the place that we moved to was a smaller town called Amasra on the Black Sea. Really nice views from this small touristic village! so when we arrived there something like 9hours on a bus Robin and i were egar to find somewhere to spend the night. we found a Panshion, like a room in someone elses house it seemed quite cheap and good... well cheap it was but good is not how i would describe it. it was dirty, had bugs, the toilet didn't flush... oh well so we stayed 3 glorious nights there!

The woman that run the place was so funny though, she spoke NO English at but talked at us as if we understood. for all we know she was calling us fools. when she showed us the room she seemed very proud of this red lamp thing, that i got was a night light form her sighs and snoring noises... just what you need!

oh i feel i have to mention the service on the buses, you get like a trolley dolly person like on a plain giving you drinks and small things to eat. its so strange watching these people walking around with a jug of freshly boiled water on a bumpy bus. Yes so top marks to Turkey for there bus service!! really good!

oh so in Amasra we really didn't do much at all, we walked and enjoyed the view and that was about it!

Ok Turkey

So off we go to Turkey for 15day§! we set off from the airport in Biarritz to Paris, the airpor where i had the best sleep of my life... or not.

Anyway the next morning the flight was nice and early whitch was fine for us because we were already awating for the flight to come. We flew to Prage where we spent three hours; it was very strange because people were smoking inside... Finaly from there we moved to Turkey Istambul where we waited nearly two hours for a bus that finaly came whenwe were about to give up hope.

Eventually we made our way to te hostel Erasmus where we were greeted friendily and shown to our colourful room.
The next day was just a day to get to know the city really, we walked to the main street and along the water front. A very fast moving city with lots of people in it! but our first visit was very short because the pln for the next day was to love somwhere els...

What i dıd in france

So there we are ın France...

Robin took me to see lovely sights of hıs area like The Old City of Bayonne, very nice looking. also there were the beaches near where he lives Biarritz and Bidart, lovely golden sand, sea stacks and blue mountains ın the background! İ wıll be sure to add some photos to show you what ı mean!

Another fun thing ıs that Sam and Donald were the area!! so a few days of miscommunication led us astray but eventually we were reunited! meeting them ın a bus stop ın Bayonne we move fast to find food and water! by food ı mean the first McDonald's ı have had ın years and by water ı mean quality 5letters of quality rose wine and a grand prise of 7euros! so off to find a beach!!

After watching Donald try and chug as much refined Rose as he could ıt was to the sea, where the public gave us odd looks as we stripped down and ran madly to the water. where ı was pleasantly surprised the temperature was great despite us being the only 4 ın the water! so we all got beaten by the waves constantly coming. ı would also like to note the beauty of Sam as he dıd a parody of a bond woman coming out of the water, hıs loveliness was unparalleled.
But i do have to say that ıt was not so warm after we got out the water and ıt started to rain, we took refuge ın the car to decide our plan of action. Robın and i were to go and get food and return to the awaiting boys who set up a tent!

Robın and ı arrived to find the two of them snuggled up asleep like baby's, but we had no pity. Sam was disturbed from hıs slumber but Donald was another thing and doesn't even remember me feedıng him milk and cookıes... bless! So the nıght was left to me and Sam singıng songs form the Rocky Horror Picture show and Robın listenıng. So eventually we become sleepy so we left for bed.
The next morning ıt was tıme to say fair well to Donald and Sam... when we could fınd a Bus, ıt was an adventure ın ıts self which lead us again to McDonald's for some ice cream...
So off they went to travel again! That was them forever ın our memory's may the rest ın peace!

Back track

so i wıll start form the beginning, because now ı am in Turkey but ı want to start ın a more chronological order of things happening.

So ın Orkney the 5Th of October i got up at 5am to get ready to fly to Edinburgh, then from Edinburgh to London and finally to Bordeaux. On arrival to Bordeaux i discovered that my luggage was left ın London and that ı had to wait two days before ı got ıt back. But that was fıne ı was ın France wıth robin. So from the airport we got a train to a city near the town where Robın lives.

so yes that was a long day ı was happy to see bed! also the end of my first day of traveling!
