Traversing Turkey


Day 10 into a magical world. It has been a real challenge negotiating the streets of Turkey. I need a wheel chair with mountain bike tires. My wheel chair has proven worthless on  cobble stones, dirt and gravel. I am doing my best with the walker and hope the wheels don’t fall off.

I do know that this walker will set a record for distance traveled. There will be a place for it in the Handicapped Hall of Fame once it is retired or falls apart.Roblox HackBigo Live Beans HackYUGIOH DUEL LINKS HACKPokemon Duel HackRoblox HackPixel Gun 3d HackGrowtopia HackClash Royale Hackmy cafe recipes stories hackMobile Legends HackMobile Strike Hack

Sylvia has been taking good care of me, getting me dressed and dragging me up and down stairs. Turkey is not a place for handicapped individuals but in spite of that I am getting through the day with laughter and good spirits.

My travel companions have also stepped in to lend a hand and the Turkish people are not the least bit reticent of helping by literally carrying me to wherever I need to go.

I managed to venture 600 feet from the hotel this  morning and spent 1 hour waiting for the right lighting to photograph a door. I am pleased with the results.

My shower took a little time to get into as there was a 2 foot  lip I had to climb over. After finishing my shower I realized that I could not get out on my own.  I asked Sylvia for help in order to prevent killing myself when I realized that it would be redundant.

We are in Antalya a beautiful Meditterean town and set out tomorrow on a Turkish Gulet for a 4 day sail before returning home.

Truly another Noble Adventure. I am now planning another trip and in the Turkey tradition we do not promise but only say if Allah is willing.

(If  I owe you 10 bucks I’ll pay you back if Allah is willing)

  1. Fred,
    I just wanted to tell you it was a pleasure for my daughter,Andrea, and I to meet you at the ski show and I have decided to volunteer for the ski to defeat ALS. As I told you, I had a good friend who had ALS and I understand the challenges ahead. I loved reading through your Blog and can only hope to see as many places, do as many things, and make as many friends as the Fredinator.
    I hope to see you again at the Bagdad and we will have you in our prayers.

    Your new friends
    Ron and Andrea Russell

  2. Thanks Ron and Andrea, I look forward to hooking up with you soon. Hope to see you Nov. 20
