Skerries Educate Together NS Marathon 2018 – Day 12 update

Hi everyone,

We said goodbye to Silivri today and travelled another 348km through Istanbul (which is not the capital of Turkey, as it was incorrectly mentioned to be here yesterday – apologies for that) and onwards to the city of Bolu (population 131,000).  This city is on the old highway between Istanbul and Ankara (the actual capital of Turkey) and there is a modern motorway which passes underneath the city to take today’s travellers through Bolu without having to stop.  We, however, have stopped here for the night and tomorrow we will head in the direction of Ankara.

All the best,
