Cincis Camping, Western Romania – Glorious lakeside camping, basic facilities but lovely – N 45°41.322′ E 022°51.255′

Camping de Oude Wilg, Central Romania – Very pleasant little Dutch-run campsite in central Romania, N 45°47.036′ E 024°34.035′

Camping Lac Murighiol, Danube Delta, Romania – Pleasant campsite in Murighiol, offering good boat tours showing off the wildlife of the Delta – N 45°02.450′ E 029°09.383′

Sakar Hills Camping, Biser, Eastern Bulgaria – Very pleasant British-run campsite with inclusive WiFi for all-important blog updates – N 41°52.217′ E 025°59.494′

Mystik Camping, Kilyos, Turkey – Pleasant location being in a small seaside town, friendly staff and inclusive WiFi, but cold showers and poor site drainage.  Probably lovely in good weather, but when Dan was there it was cold, wet, flooded and miserable! – N 41°14.667 E 029°01.942′

Iran Consulate in Istanbul – N 41°00.694′ E 028°58.510′

Cluster of motorcycle shops near Sirkeci Tram stop – N 41°00.913 E 028°58.523′

Turkmenistan Consulate in Istanbul – N 40°57.643′ E 028°49.919′

Motorland (quite large Istanbul motorcycle and quad-bike dealer) – N 41°00.055′ E 028°48.323′

Istanbul Mocamp, Selimpasa, Turkey – Quite a long way out from Istanbul (Mystik is actually closer) but the buses to get into town from Selimpasa are quicker than from Kilyos, once you’ve got down to Selimpasa from the campsite (approx 4 miles).  Warm showers, and decent site drainage make this a better bad-weather option than Mystik, but no internet – N 41°05.066′ E 028°24.366′

Entrance 2 to Ephesus (Small Theatre side of town) – N 37°56.098′ E 027°20.792′
