Actually I never wanted to go to India. Actually I really hate large crowds of people. India is actually not even on our route and actually things never turn out the way you expect them to. As we have spent a lot of time on the Balkans and got lost in Iran we had to figure out a plan for the winter. Spending wintertime in Mongolia and Siberia just didn’t seem to be the right option for us. So Ann-Katrin offered to buy an Enfield for me if we could go to India. As we were going to Nepal to do the Annapurna anyway ,this was actually a quite good option for us. To be honest: the conversation was done when the word Enfield was spoken.
So after we finally crossed the Bosporus on wheels as well we went straight towards Bursa. We had enough of big cities and red a lot of advertisements about the “green Bursa”. Right on the side of the Uludag National Park and inbetween nice coastline and mountains.
