The Clayton's Travels travel blog


We arrived at the Turkish border just before 10am. It took 45 minutes here, with the wait in a small queue and then sorting out a small problem with our Turkish Residency visas. It seems we should have notified the police of our change of address! Considering we got the visas in Izmir and have had many campground addresses during our travels this seems to be bureaucratic nonsense for motorhomers, but we were warned there may be a problem if we wish to return to Turkey.

The Turks let us leave, and we then had another 25 minutes at the Greek border, where Customs asked to look inside Homer (the first time this has happened) and then the Greeks let us back into their country, with the warning that we can only stay 90 days in Europe. We will have to investigate this restriction!

From there it was a half hour drive to Alexandroupolis. We stopped to enquire at the Fiat dealer about getting our water tank problem fixed (to be told "Sorry. Good Luck!"), and at LidL to stock up on cheap beer for David. The Municipal Camping Ground (N 40° 50’ 46.1” E 25°51’20.3”) we stayed at back in December/January looks very different now, and is quite full. We went for a swim at the beach to cool off before relaxing and doing nothing much for the afternoon and evening.
