  1. We meet on Silivri, Turkey, in your way to the East, my way to the west. I believe that “civilizations do not clash” all the time.
    I wish you a nice journey.

    1. Hi Jamil it was great to meet you in the ‘campsite’ and enjoy your company. In deed our worlds are similar and we share common ideology even if we come from different corners of this world. Happy motorcycling towards Berlin and then France- safe travels.

  2. Hey Barbara, thrilled to track you down at last! I searched your name, name + cycling, name + silk road, + library road, and finally found you with “paper road!”
    Have a lot of catching up to do with your adventures but looking forward to getting up to speed. Meanwhile, just want to express the heartiest “Bravo!” and wish you great grace and fortune on your travels to you both…
