Is that the Bosphorus Straits? It sure is!! (Istanbul, Turkey)

Is that the Bosphorus Straits? It sure is!!
(Istanbul, Turkey)

Hi All,

Boris, Kiwi Ted and I arrived in Istanbul safely. We crossed the Bosphorus Straits on Saturday to complete Leg 4 of The Great Game Expedition in unconventional style. Due to Boris’ gearbox problems we covered the last 4000 kms on the back of a range of trucks and we are now a couple of weeks behind schedule.

The fourth leg of the journey had a little more drama, disasters and challenges than I’d hoped for. Now I’m focussed on getting Boris back to London. Exactly how and when this will happen is still up in the air. What this space for the latest updates.

The Central Asian section of the journey is now complete. It’s a massive milestone and I’m stoked to have finally completed it. Now for the final phase on the journey home.

Jon, Boris and Kiwi Ted
