Waiting time: 18 min
We had made it – after fleeing Bulgaria because of the bad weather our arrival in Turkey was like a fresh breath of hot air. The sun was unbearably hot and now we stood on the roadside with no shade. Thankfully there was a gas station nearby where we could get a bottle of water and some food. We were told by our last driver that paying with a card in Turkey is an easy task but we never expected to see so many card terminals in just one store. Our lunch consisted of chocolate chip cookies and some nuts. After waiting for just a bit less than 20 minutes we got on a car where Ahmed, the driver with a classical name, took us forward towards Canakkale.
Our travels in Turkey had started and we were happy!
