A bicycle tour from Germany to Istanbul In this book I describe our journey from Germany to Istanbul 2013. We were three girls and went by bicycle all the way. I connect our experience with a text from Gansan Tschinag. He describes his relation to his bicycle in a very intensive way and I mark the highlight of each day. The observer can follow the trip, where we slept, how many km we made per day, ... I was so impressed, how much we could sweat, how much we could eat and that it's possible to go so far by muscle power.
