Into the Orient

Feel the Orient drawing steadily closer as we cycle south from Bucharest to Istanbul through some of the least traveled regions of Eastern Europe. You will whiz past horse-drawn carts, observe farmers pitching hay the old fashioned way, and sip strong coffee proffered by curious villagers in rural Romania, Bulgaria, and Turkey.

From Bucharest we head further south, crossing into Bulgaria and then turning east towards Turkey. After a few days getting to know the friendly people of Turkey over kebabs and coffees we arrive at our final destination, exotic Istanbul, which straddles Europe and Asia across the Bosporus Strait. The same city, known in antiquity as Byzantine and, later, Constantinople, served as capital, in succession, of three empires. Istanbul remains one of the world’s most majestic, enchanting and vibrant cities. There we will gather together one last time for a celebratory dinner, and reflect on the epic journey just ended.
