Hi, welcome to Bryan’s blog. I’m a sort of retired computer guy who’s been dreaming for over a decade about a long bicycle trip. I started this cycling trip in July 2011 from Berlin, Germany. Much of that summer was spent following the Carpathian Mountains with Snežana:
I kind of wanted to continue on to Croatia and Slovenia and call it the Tour Around Hungary.
We took a short break in Belgrade and ran to the warmer coastal areas where we spent the winter, arriving in Turkey Feb. 1, 2012. Snežana continued east, and I got stuck in Turkey.
Here’s the route from Berlin to Çeşme. There was a boat in there from Athens to Çeşme via Chios.
And the riding I did February-June 2012:
and June-October 2012:
I did some riding in Mexico in January and February 2013:
And another stretch in Turkey, May-July 2013:
How great that none of these maps have scales. Realize that I didn’t really go very far.

It’s taken a while after requests from many people, but I finally have a subscribe-via-e-mail link. It’s even been tested and apparently works. Look for a link on the right side of the page under subscribe. Should be pretty self-explanatory.
