September the first . One month gone already and I am so please I have come on this adventure. I Iknow this has been an easy sector although for the first week it did not feel like it.

The Bus Team are really great we range in age from 21 to 60 plus and I find them all great company. We have party animals, moaners and groaners and quiet ones but they all in their way contribute to the mix. There is always someone to talk to but on the other hand if you want to read that's just fine and you are left alone.

Here are a few things that have made an impression, some of them quite unexpectedly.

Sunflowers from Belgium to Bulgaria

Haystacks in Romania

An Irish Bard

The Lorenzal roof in Prague

The view over Istanbul from the Orient Hostel - stunning

The beauty of Turkrey - further exploration required

The kindness of strangers - fellow travelers


Some things I have learnt:

Check the name of the station when you leave the campsite - so you can get home OK - Vienna

Know which way you should be going when you get on the bus - Burchrest

A fifteen minute walk is at least 45 minutes - Istanbul

Do not bother trying to fold a wet tent - you are going to use it tonight - first week

I really did not need to jump off a cliff - Olundeniz

One month down 6 to go......
