Quad Biking in Turkey 2

After spending a few days relaxing in the sun we decided it was time for something a little more adventurous. Turkey had lots to offer so we opted for a morning of quad biking. 
Up early and ready to go, we set off at 7am to try and beat the blazing morning sun.

 After our short safety demonstration and a quick lesson in how to use the bikes....we were off.

We raced down roads and through country lanes, into a traditional Turkish village where we passed the local gentlemen selling their fruit on the side of the road. 


 We sailed past, giving them a nod and a wave.


 Before being let loose on the dirt tracks.



I love how you can see the dust settling in this picture. Trust me, it was pretty hard to see where you were going at times.

But it wasn't long before we were treated to this amazing view.



Once we had turned the engines off, the peace and tranquility that surrounded us was amazing. There wasn't a soul to be seen on the roads. For a short while you felt like you were awake before the rest of the world.
With the sun pouring down on us we soaked up the view.


And a few cheeky photos too. 





































On the ride home we stopped at a traditional looking cafe for a cold coffee. I say 'cafe' but it was more like a shed with little sections of comfy sofas and cushions, helping you to cool down from the heat.


We paused to take a photo and suddenly realised how dirty our faces were.




All in all, a great morning and a new activity to tick off our list.
