      • I love Turkey. Last few days. Trying to book and Air BNB for a few nights because I don’t want to camp in the rain (only have a bivy bag with me) . Getting verified when you only have a foreign data sim is a challenge. Good thing Paul is awake so he could send me the magic code

      • Great! I love Turkey too, on all occasions I went there.

        So, a bivy bag, that doesn’t protect you from rain, but does it against mosquitoes? (Which you too had a lot in Hungary) Here, we are in Albania now, it rains a lot too. We stayed two days in a hotel to avoid it, tomorrow we continue towards Montenegro.

        I heard of AIR BNB but have never used it myself. Good Paul is helping out; praise the technique!

        Enjoy Turkey the few days left, Andrew!

      • Bivy bag keeps me dry in the rain but it’s only a bag. So i would have to sit around in the rain before bed. And I do not have a stove or anything with me. I also like that air BnB lets me have contact with locals, which I enjoy

      • Same kind of approach as CouchSurfing of WarmShowers. I used that previous time I was in Turkey; stayed only with local families and WarmShower or CouchSurfing families. Great way to interact with locals! Enjoy it!

      • I was going to try Couch Surfing here but am too lazy. I don’t like to Couch Surf more than one night at a time. And I have four nights left (one at airport and three now with Air BnB).

        I love couch surfing guests at home though. We get many requests. After this trip I will be home long enough to say “yes” to some.

        Enjoy your travels
