Two french cyclists want to discover Uskudar area
Posted June 7th, 2011 - 4:07 pm by from Le Vieux-Marche, France (Permalink)
Hello Uskudar !

We are Thomas and Elise, a couple of two french youths. Elise is a future-goat-grower, and I work in an association that promote energy savings in the buildings.
We have left our home in february to ride our bikes to China, during one year... well, it takes a bit longer than to fly it, but it's worth doing it for meeting people on the way !!
You can learn more about us and about our trip on our blog: http://petitsvelos.blogspot.com (sorry, it is only in french, maybe you can use google traductor !)
We plan to cross all Turkey by bike, from Istambul to Erzurum, in order to reach Iran,in August.

We arrived in Istanbul few days ago and we have applied for a visa so, we have to stay at least 10 days. We find a host for this week in Beyoglu but for next week we don't know where to sleep. We choise to contact your group because we really would like to discover an other part of the city...

We already tryed to contact some nice profiles, but till now nobody seems to be available !!! :-(

If you are interested in meeting us, and you have some days free between the 13th and the 20th of june, then great, just tell us, and we'll see how we can arrange !

Moreover, we would really like to learn turkish beacause it's gonna be useful to us during one month. So, we could propose you this exchange : we give you some basics of french, and you give us some basics of turkish !!

Thanks very much in advance for your hospitality !


Thomas and Elise
