We want to say THANK YOU to our main sponsors

Sponsored our van insurance for the EU and have paid for our Travel Insurance so we stay safe on the road. They provide cover for all campers and motorhomes and specialise in insurance for custom (self build) vans so if you have built your own or have a van or motorhome yourself then give them a call. We also use them for our own house insurance. The good news is as a Tread the Globe follower you get a preferential rate so give them a call (quote TREAD the Globe)

Thanks for the shout-out, but if you guys don't get on the road soon, we're going to nickname the show either 'Dread the Globe' or 'Tread the Car Park'. Cheers!

What lovely kind people you are feeding the beautiful stray cats

Author — Sandra Dee


In Istanbul you can also go Asia Side (Kuzguncuk, Polonezköy, Moda-Kadıköy (not by Car), Caddebostan Beach and Princess Islands). In Europe side; Karaköy, Galata Tower, Balat, Ortaköy, Bebek). In Turkey if you want sea; Bodrum, Marmaris..Ephesus is on the way. If you want history Kapadokya, Çanakkale. If you want warm weather and green go to Karadeniz🙂💕

I'm very afraid I would have two new cats traveling with me. I wouldn't be able to leave them behind to fend for themselves after caring for them for so long. Corona is quite determined to convince you to adopt her! She's trying to show you she'd be a good van kitty.

Just as Chris was speaking of how naughty the cats were becoming, one was attempting an ascent on the scrawny sapling behind him. Marianne was adorable in her conflict of wanting to draw attention to the feline friskyness but not wanting to interrupt! 😆😆🐈 Cheeky kitties!

I’m just thinking 🤔 it might be nice if you bought a tree or bush to plant there in the car park as a great memory to leave there. Great Q&A 👌
