Hi David Exactly that - DVLA had managed to lose the log book before they sent it back out to him!!!!!! They admitted it was their mistake but couldn't get him a new one out in time for his trip!! Never mind - there is always another time - then we can do the Bulgaria/Romania route. This whole trip ...

Hi David I have just got back!!! You sound like my sort of guy - I defintely do not do organised trips!!! My friend couldn't make it to Istanbul (problem with the bike paperwork) so he caught the Ancona/Igoumenitsa ferry and then rode to Thessaloniki. I caught the overnight train to Thess from Sirke...

A question (or 2) for David! I'm likely to be picked up in Istanbul and drive back to the UK this September and the Hungary/Romania/Bulgaria trip looks interesting! How long ago did you do it? Any particular pitfalls you can think of? Did you write your trip up anywhere that I can access it online? ...

Jeanne

Can you recommend any hotels in Samos, please? I am coming from Greece to Turkey (Samos-Kusadasi route) and would like to stay in Samos for at least 1 night. It will be in July and over a weekend so don't want to spend most of my time there hunting for accommodation!!

Thanks
