How Cool the Open Road Can Be [Video]-, Eastern Europe Road Trip- Turkiye

We fell beyond blessed and grateful to have yet another dream of ours come true- The Eastern Europe Road Trip! And to celebrate the awesomeness of the open road, we wanted to give you the highlights of our longest day on the road. It was supposed to be a gruesome 8 hour+ drive from Istanbul to Ayvalik, and to our surprise, it was delightful! It’s the best of the best moments of being in the car, feeling the wind and feeling nauseous, feeling free and feeling trapped, all wrapped up in that unreal, changing Turkiye landscape.

Loved making the video! It is one of those really great ones. Enjoy it!





The Road trip begins with Basketball and Getting out of Istanbul if you’ve like to follow the entire road tripping part of things. And the Turkey experience starts with Murder turned Love Affair, and goes onto The Mother of all Videos.


We have nothing but the deepest appreciation for for their generous contribution to our Eastern European Road Trip. Should you need a rental car, their competitive comparative site may help you save some money and get the car that will suit your family’s needs. WE LOVE THEM! Thank you!


We’d love to connect to you also on TwitterFacebookYouTube.


Insanely unorthodox, embarrassingly honest, and on her path towards spiritual awareness, Gabi Klaf blogs about her family’s ups and downs in their now third year of non-stop budget world travel. This family of five has lived with an indigenous tribe in the jungles of Ecuador, hitchhiked throughout the world, danced with drunk Vietnamese at weddings, and hiked the entire Annapurna Circuit trek with a documentary film crew in tow. Gabi writes about the untold sides of family travel life, those moments that take your breath away, adventures and mishaps while globetrotting, and how bits of her soul remain in this small town and off the side of that river. She is a guitar-stumming, energy-healing, ADHD wind-loving scaredy cat. Hugely romantic, tantalizingly sweet, and hysterically funny, Gabi Klaf represents a rare Rubik’s Cube of family world adventure.
