We got to chatting and immediately hit it off. They are a Romanian family that built out their fire truck Mercedes truck to travel the world and call themselves Baraka_Travels.

Met this awesome family from Romania (@brktravels) on their way to explore Siberia. They are in this amazing custom camper diy build from a 1989 Mercedes T1 4x4 van that was formerly a German fire truck. I've been really looking at these T1 vans that neve

It was a short but sweet time together and we hope to cross paths with them in the future. Safe travels, friends.

Our next stop was the Rose Valley area of Goreme. It was a bit hard to level our Sprinter van so instead of going up on blocks, Dan and Luka dug a hole for our tires to fall into.

In the morning, before our new friends took off, they offered to take a family photo for us.

You see a family posing by their van. I see a wet rag drying on our door handle because someone missed the toilet and I couldn’t reach the paper towels in time. Oopsie.
