A four day adventure exploring the numerous islands scattered along the coast of Connemara with my Brompton Bike. I wild camped for 3 nights and stayed on a different island each night. There are bridges that connect these islands to the mainland in addition to a number of tidal islands in the region. I caught a train from Heuston Station in Dublin to Ceannt Station in Galway with my Brompton and from here I started my cycle further west to Connemara. This region isn't that well known on the tourist trail and as a result traffic is at a minimum which makes for very comfortable cycling. The 3 islands that I camped were Lettermullan, Mweenish and Inis NĂ­.

Finally I made it to Turkey! Always one of the most recommended countries by cyclists. For my first ride there I decided to stick mostly to the Aegean and Mediterranean coast. The tour started with a visit of Istanbul from where I took a ferry to Bandirma and cycled all the way South to Antalya. The trip included a couple of ferry journeys, Istanbul-Bandirma and Bodrum-Datca as well as a 200 km bus transfer between the town of Marmaris and Fethiye as I would not have had enough time to cover the distance otherwise. Excluding these transfers I cycled 1280 kilometres and experienced the great hospitality, food and sceneries that Turkey has to offer.
