Dan and Claire on Sabbatical!!

Welcome to our blog, we hope you enjoy following our adventures!
We split our sabbatical in 2 parts:
Part 1 was from March to June 2010 touring around in our campervan in France and Spain.
Part 2 started on the 7th of July when we left Scotland to cycle through Europe and the Middle East to Africa in the remaining 6 months (back for Xmas).
Have a look at the route below and we'll try to post pics as much as we can!


Cycle Route to Africa

7 Oct 2010

Mini blog...We're in Adana, Southern Turkey

Uttcha, its been good! We've cycled though some amazing landscapes, met some lovely people and a pervent on scooter (with his wife!); crossed a large set of mountains with several passes up to 1800m, even had frost on our tent one night and been chased by huge dogs!

But these stories will have until our next rest day; which, fingers crossed, will be in Syria! We're going to cycle to the border and see if we can get visa there.

Take care
Dan and Claire

ps we're in a lovely hotel...so have been enjoying it too much to sit down and write lots :O)

pps. Didn't leave the hotel, it was raining!


  1. Hi Claire and Dan, since you didn't mention a baby, and we didn't use a scooter, I was relieved to realize the pervert you referred to wasn't me! Look forward to hearing what's happened since we saw you Oct 2. We're on the Med coast in Kars at the moment. Wishing safe insanity and lots of fun.
