Alcohol is very cheap here.

If you enter Bulgaria you have to buy a vignette, they won’t tell you that as it’s easier to fine a tourist than explain it to them. If you just enter Bulgaria you see on the side of the road a sign with ‘Vignet’. If you don’t buy it on the border you can still buy it in every big gas station (such as Shell).

 


Turkey

Diesel: 3, 87 – 4.11 tl/L (02/’13)

On the road

On the highway you will see big green boards who says ‘OGS’ ‘HGS4. You will see somet automatic checkpoints, you can buy an electric card and load money on it. With this you can pay on the checkpoints. At the moment we were on the road, we had no idea what it was and couldn’t ask anyone as there was no-one on the checkpoints. So we just drove through the checkpoints without paying, once an alarm went off… We still didn’t get a fine J. No idea if we would be able to enter Turkey again with our car…

 

Iskenderun

There is a big shopping mall ‘Primemall’, where you can find everything.

Taking local busses (white) cost 2TL to go through the town
