tsarevo (carevo) – kirklareli (turkey)


nice climb on the old rough road through the forest to the border. the border crossing was kind of buerocratic with lots of passport controls and stamps. in turkey the road turns into a new highway and rolls “down” to kirklareli. just a couple km before the city i met emil & oscar from sweden ( who are on the way to bejing.
