Site Review Camping Veliko Bulgaria

Waking up at this site was just what the doctor ordered

So as you may be aware there was a little bit of a hold up at the Turkish border for the #Bristanbul tour last night. We had planned to arrive at our destination in Bulgaria for around 8pm local time and have a nice dinner on site. Well that plan did not quote come to fruition.

The Sites And Sounds Of Istanbul

I pitch up and head into Istanbul

Touring holidays do not stop once you're parked and pitched. As I am sure many of you will agree the touring on foot is just as important as the vehicle side of your trip. After the slight hell that was towing through Istanbul it was decided that a trip into the city, on foot, was well deserved.

Towing Through The Backstreets Of Istanbul

Ever wondered what towing round the backstreets of Istanbul was like?

As we made our 184 mile journey to Istanbul from Gallipoli I saw some sights, weird policing, questionable motorway maneuvers and traffic like I have never seen before in my entire life.

Saying Goodbye To Greece And Hello To Turkey

More Stunning Mountains And 2 Days In Dubrovnik

On the first rest day of the tour I take in the scenery

Following writing my my Solitudo sight review I was able to sit down by myself and watch the world go by and reflect on my 2 days in Croatia. The one thing that I've taken away from my camping holiday in Croatia is that this country is in the top two best driving experience I've had.

Site Review 6- Camp Solitudo Dubrovnik, Croatia

Out of all the 21 we are going to be visiting Croatia has to be the at the top of my list of destinations I'm am most excited for. So day 2 and 3 we are staying in Camp Solitudo, which is around 10 minutes away from Old Town Dubrovnik were Kings Landing from Game Of Thrones is filmed.

From Croatia To Bosnia And Then Back To Croatia

We head into Dubrovnik, Croatia

So we are about a week into this epic journey to Bosphorus and back so now is the perfect time to get up early and spring clean the vehicles and do an inventory of what supplies we have and what needs replenishing.

Motorway Driving With Better Weather Inner City Towing And Cooking

Today I faced a whole new set of challenges with inner city towing and hairpin bends as well as amazing weather and a massive surprise breakfast that could have fed the spartan army. Upon waking up at Camping Bled the team were presented with 1 hamper for every 2 guests. What was inside the hamper blew me away. 1 large thermos of coffee, 1 whole bag of chocolate croissants and rolls, chicken pasta salad, cheese, 3 different hams, roast beef, salmon, frape cheese, yogurts, salad and spreads. Now times that by 4.

Another Day Another 3 Countries And Extreme Weather Towing

Heavy rain, cross winds through mountains all while towing. Exciting stuff

So today has been an eventful day to say the very least. We have covered three countries, well started in one then travelled across another 2, we completed our 1000th miles as we drove through Italy, saw some of the most beautiful terrain through the mountains and then towed through rain that was so heavy you could not see 30 feet in front of you. That will get your heart pounding.
