Part 2 of the the Bailey Bristanbul Tour, or leg 2 as we were calling it during the tour, may have been more epic than the first. It was on part 2 of the tour where we ran into the majority of the issues that occurred during the 21 day intercontinental journey.
During this leg we had another wave of new team members, 1 of who is a celebrity chef, Dean Edwards, who was cooking up a storm in the Pegasus and actor Ryan Philpott, border control issues, man made paperwork issues and memories that will last a lifetime.
The second part of the tour took us to a lot more "less popular" destinations across the Europe. The only reason I say that is I have never heard of anyone going to Bosnia or Albania for a holiday in recent years. Crossing through these countries showed many things, the most important being how beautiful the landscapes are and how some are still quite underdeveloped.
Our time in Turkey was fantastic as we crossed over the Bosphorus. The main aim of our mission was to make it to Istanbul, and we did in style. 5+ hour stand still traffic through the centre of Istanbul's trading back streets while towing caravans and driving motorhomes. Living the touring dream!
Some of the more beautiful places on leg 2 were Budapest and the Prague, if you have not visited these places I urge you to do so. If you do go to Budapest make sure you visit the ruin bars, as seen in this documentary. Prague is also packed with things to do and see from museums to bars to cultural walks around Prague Castle. On a trip like this you really are spoilt for choice.
Watching part 1 and 2 of these documentary brings back loads of great memories, and some harrowing ones. This tour was such an amazing experience and I hope you guys enjoy the documentary. Also keep an eye out for a certain handsome CaravanTimes team member...
