Wake up early, shy away of getting up and try to find back to sleep. Wake up again two hours later, realize you really have to get up now to make use of the short daylight, knowing that it will take minimum 1.5 hours till the bike is packed and ready for leaving. Put on clothes, collect the stuff that's spread out in the tent and put it in the respective bags, move the bags out to the apsis, roll up the matress and stash the sleeping bag into the compression bag. Move everything out of the tent, including yourself. Take down the tent, let it dry a bit if it's possible, roll it up and put it in the packsack. Mount all the bags and the camera on the bike, check if nothing was left behind and start to move into the day.

To my surprise i have a working internet connection - i was expecting to be offline for a week as the sim-card i bought in Kirklareli 2.5 weeks ago failed to register with the network last week. This happened because telephones in Turkey are required to be registered to a person for prolonged use. The Turkcell-employees in Kirklareli had told me this was not necessary for a data-only card but they where obviously wrong. But it looks like the registration-process got through a lot quicker than i was told in the Istanbul-shop.
