Atatürk IV: Turkish Islamism
Along the Euphrates River
Published on 13.07.2023, 17:12 in Kars, Turkey
This report’s podcast is only available in german: Entlang des Euphrat.
After Cappadocia we speeded up a bit and cycled in 2.5 weeks to Kars just before the Georgian border. While the first days were a bit boring, it finally became more mountainous east of Kangal and then even really spectacular in a canyon of the Euphrates – the highlight was the Kemaliye Rock Road. And finally we cycled the last 500 kilometers between Erzincan and Kars mostly on cyclist-friendly small roads through beautiful river valleys. In addition, we report once again about aches and pains of Tizian and his bicycle and draw a conclusion at the end of more than 120 days and 5000 kilometers of Turkey.
We always appreciate your critisism, praise and other suggestions or hints and invite you to send us them via email@example.com!
We are going to get on our bicycles once again and further collect kilometers :-)
See you again soon!
