I will study in Greece in Winter Semester with Erasmus Project. I want it to be more interesting so I have decided to go with bicycle from my hometown (Manisa). The journey will start from Manisa and in order of İzmir, İzmir/Çeşme, Chios island(Sakız adası), Pire Port/Athens and Tripolis where my university in. I am cycling since 2011. Let's say semi-professional. I can say for this journey that is my dream. I have always want to go abroad with bicycle.
Why I am here?
In Turkey our financial situation getting worse everyday compare to Europe. For now one Euro is 6,40 Turkish Lira. (The minimum wage in Turkey 1600 TL). I need some cycling equipment for journey. Also some expenses. If I can get more funding I can travel whole Greece or other countries in Europe. (Let's say Italy going with ferry or Macedonia, Bulgaria. If you read until here thank you for your interest :)
