It's Going to be Turkish Delight
Submitted by Tiffany on 26 February, 2010 - 10:57
I'm getting my stuff together ready for filming and travelling, which is a bit tricky as most of my travel gear is in LA and is being fedexed directly to Bristol (200 miles from me) to be picked up on Saturday night. I'll be the one arriving at Istanbul Airport on Sunday wearing full bike gear, carrying my helmet and with a huge mountain of excess luggage including my panniers, topbox and tankbag.
I'm trying to listen to a cassette "Speak Turkish in 30 Days" as I type this, some of it sounds quite easy, for example "one beer" is "beer beer" - or at least that's what it sounds like on my tape player. I'll get a chance to try it out for real in 48 hours.
In preparation I've even read through my bike travel insurance policy (from HC Travel), as you can imagine, it's tricky getting a policy that covers for long term travel on a big motorbike in remote areas of the world- my boyfriend had a good laugh when I got to the bit:
"Cannot claim for putting yourself in needless danger"
that's my whole life invalid then according to him.
