Crossing over to Asia on the Bosphorus bridge and heading towards Ankara. We experienced some problems finding campsite so ended up sleeping on a petrol station's roof.

After spending a great day in Istanbul today we have to say good bye to this great city. I am the kind of person who fell in love very easily, whether it is a great looking girl, a new dirt bike or a fun hobby (nothing is more fun than riding) I can fall in love with it instantly. 

Well, Istanbul is the great example. I took her only one day to move in my heart. Since we left Hungary I kept pushing dad to go faster and cover more distance as I am chasing my dream to cross the red dessert in Australia with kangaroos jumping around me and spend the night next to a billabong.

The Bosphorus Bridge from Europe

Today we decided to break camp early and beat the morning traffic in Istanbul but we managed to mock around quite a bit so we ended up in the worst morning traffic so far. After fighting our way through the sea of angry morning commuters we arrived to the Bosphorus Bridge. This mighty structure which was completed in 1973 connects Europe and Asia on its and a half kilometers long asphalt stretch. 

I have been thinking for a while how to celebrate this trans continental crossing and finally I decided to send a text message to my friend on the middle of the bridge.

  "Hello Tibi, I started to write this txt from Europe but I am already halfway through the bridge and hey.. hello from Asia" 


The landscape in the first few hundred kilometers in Asia wasn't as appealing as I thought it will be. Long straight stretches of highways with great resting areas and dried out fields.

Waking up in the 1000 star hotel

We arrived to Ankara in the late afternoon and headed to the only campsite indicated on our map. One thing I have to point out here. We didn't use any GPS throughout our trip and only started to use travel books like Lonely Planet from India. So our Cartographia map indicated one campsite in Ankara which we found, well, we found the location but no campsite to be seen. We asked the locals about it and the same thing was told to us over and over again, "There is no camping in Ankara". We thought it is impossible as our map was pretty accurate so far. As the night approached, we called up the Hungarian embassy where we got the same information, no campsite. 

To solve this riddle, we stopped at a petrol station to figure out what to do. At the station there was a rather good looking and friendly young lady, about my age, early twenties. She introduced herself as the owner of the gas station -inherited it from her parents- and she is more than happy if we stay there. 

It sounded rather weird but after she sent her staff to pick fruits for us and make some dinner, we decided to stay there overnight. Nevertheless, it was a great decision. We parked the bikes inside the gas station's shop and slept on the roof of the gas station. Well, what more a budget rider can expect than a 1000 star hotel.

Education system in rural areas in much different from education system of urban areas. Education system in urban areas is far much better the education system in rural areas. In urban areas there are much more facilities as compared to rural areas.

Most of the people decided to go in the Asia side for camping. It is the best experience to go with the road trip but decided it at night because in the day time there is a lot of traffic here. This brings the best experience that camping in the Asia side.

    The Riders:

    Aurel Maracsko and his son Aurel Maracsko jr. 

    We are a father and son duo who loves riding motorcycles. Aurel Jr. or Tom is an enthusiast enduro rider and Aurel Sr. is more of the adventure rider. 

    Me, a combination of Tom Sawyer and the Little Prince, adventurer, dreamer and a crazily enthusiast rider. Jules Verne was the ultimate hero of my childhood, his foresight's of the future and exotic adventures fascinated me to a level which still influences me today. I believe the constant thirst for exploration and the need for learning is the key engine for every adult just as for every child.
