Malko Tarnovo to Kiyiköy 160km

Best bit: unlimited free tea and coffee from the locals
Worst bit: crazy hotel manager bangs on door at six am
The hotel owner went a bit crazy during the night, so having had him sit with me over breakfast watching every mouthful I ate (at six am) it was time to escape. No wonder the place had been so cheap!
Nipping over the border I passed through acres of empty forest, with the occasional wild tortoise wandering by. Bliss. The locals in Turkey instantly seem to take to a cyclist. Free coffees and teas at every stop.
The landscape is hills galore - legs groaning - but I am back on the coast road again and Istanbul tantalisingly close.
