A Bike Tour

Corinne Whitney (26) from USA and Andrea Siegl (27) from Austria, who have been riding through the countries by the Mediterranean came to Turkey in the fifth month of their journey which began in Morocco. The two travelers, stating that their aim is to research the ways of communication among the Mediterranean cultures, arrived in Izmir by bike after taking the ferryboat from Rhodes to Marmaris.

They made a speech

Two ladies, one is a photographer, the other is a film producer, after staying for 2½ weeks in Turkey will bike through the Aegean coast and leave for Greece from Istanbul. They have been making speeches in conferences at schools in the countries they bike through in order to improve the Mediterranean culture and the peace. In Izmir, they met with students in Turkish High School and American High School.
