However, in the midst of the unprecedented global Coronavirus pandemic, the couple have found themselves stranded in Turkey and have made the decision to self-isolate in their motorhome, which is effectively, their home for the next 12 months, at Sundance Club, south of Kemer.

The Grey Gappers will continue to blog and vlog and keep us updated of their situation and of their self isolation in Turkey.

This weekend they posted:

“Today is Sunday and we are parked up in a small remote campsite with two other UK motorhomers we were planning to travel through Turkey and into Azerbaijan with.

“They have decided to stay here for the weeks it takes and we have joined them after speaking to our two embassies- both of whom gave different advice, the Irish being more helpful at this stage.

“There is a beach nearby, mountains with snow still on their tops as a back drop. We can walk, cycle, run etc and there is a small village nearby where the shops do have food and toilet roll still.

“So, we are effectively self-isolating here, keeping ourselves to ourselves and away from the campsite owners and family. It’s hard being away from family and friends at home during this testing period but coming home at the moment we don’t think will achieve anything much, but we will play it by ear.

“And who knows by the end of the four weeks David might have managed (motorhome) couch to 5K!"
