About me

We are a Seyran (f) and Mustafa (m), a Turkish couple 54 and 59 y/o respectively. We like driving and camping in different countries. After doing some short trips to various places in Turkey and the Greek island of Lesbos in previous years, we made the ultimate test of our van (and ourselves) by making a 70-days-long epic journey from Turkey to Nordkapp/Norway last year. During the trip we visited and transitted a total of 12 countries and spent 3 weeks around Nowegian fjords. Although we’d like to travel to Western Europe next, our options are open and we may also consider travelling in the Far East and perhaps Americas, depending on our experience with the Swap My Van system.
