Day Of Food – Turkey

posted by: Emma

This was the final day of Bayram, meaning we were low on food supplies as many small shops were shut. Our shopping list has shrunk a bit in rural turkey with muesli, chickpeas, jam, couscous (and of course pork products) all off the shelves. We spent our second to last day on the road cycling from the edge of Tuz Golu (Salt Lake) then turning East to follow the silk road route passing a number of caravanserai along the way.

The below documents what two hungry cyclists ate in one day in Turkey.


We’ve been eating porridge again lately as the weather is getting a little colder in the mornings it’s a nice warm start to the day. This batch includes pears, dried fruit and nuts and lashings of chocolate spread.
