World bicycle-tour video Turkey, another YouTube/Flickr video.
Garry’s ride to Australia was off to a good start, reaching Istanbul 27 days after leaving England! Julie also flew out to join Garry, and they spent a few days playing the tourist. But no sooner had Julie arrived than it was time for her to fly home! And it was time for Garry to continue his ride. Next stop, Iran.
Unfortunately, just as Garry left Istanbul, the British embassy in Tehran was invaded, and Iran was now deemed unsafe! Garry spent the next few days wondering whether he should go to Iran or not! And if not, which way should he go? He couldn’t go over Iran. It was too cold, and his only possible route was to head south.
