Niamh and I have made it to Thessaloniki. 2000km's from northwest Italy, through 9 countries.
An amazing journey of azure waters, steep climbs, tranquil forests and scorching plateaus.
We are now enjoying a bit of luxury and fine wine, craft beers and global whisky, before Niamh flies home.
I start the final section to Asia tomorrow morning- 800km in 7 days to Istanbul. Looking forward to meeting up with my Mum and Phil and the Turkish border.
We have both really enjoyed this tour, so I am sure that there will be more to come together. Baku to Istanbul, or the other way next summer, anyone want to get involved?
That would leave only 2 (massive) stages left to feel that I have really cycled around this little planet of ours.
