We want to say THANK YOU to our main sponsors - A Plan - Thatcham Services, who have kindly sponsored our van 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)

21:44 is something good..Don't worry..That man liked your caravan and said ''mükemmel'' which means ''perfect'' with doing that sign..That sign means perfect in Turkey but opposite meanings at some european countries.

Wow, my heart is racing after your drive to Istanbul!! As Elbow says ‘one day like this a year’d see me right’! I hope that high is still keeping you going through these times. Lots of love amazing Salopians! Xxx

Really enjoyed that video & yes it was escapism from our lockdown..just crazy how in a short space of time so much can & has changed..things like going freely into shops, crowded streets with cars & people & simple things like sitting in a cafe..oh how I will never take the simple things for granted again.. but what hasn’t changed is your optimism & sunny outlook on life & that’s to your credit. Keep safe guys & keep smiling 😊

You always seem to be extremely happy, and its great to watch a couple having fun. My last trip to Turkey was to Kuşadası - 1992. All the bars were playing Ace of Base - All That She Wants, . Everyone was very friendly, shopkeeper gave free tea and sometimes free Raki.

You both are so lovely. Seeing your smiling faces makes me smile! Wishing you all the best with your journies and all the things in your life. Stay safe and healthy. <3

Welcome to Turkey. Welcome to Istanbul, the city of Fatih. Greetings to you from Turkey. I am sure you have seen many beautiful cities in your world travels, but the beauties of Istanbul are different. Enjoy Istanbul. And please don't forget to isolate yourself. Healthy days.

I’ve been following you in Turkey but only found you about halfway through your travels there. So I’m catching up from the beginning. “Everybody in Turkey is just so nice!” from Chris. It’s funny to compare your early experiences and impressions with your present day adventures. Great viewing!
