Our 2.5 week stint in Turkey was fantastic. We managed to cover some good ground visiting Istanbul, Olympos, Fethiye, Pammukale, Ephesus, Ayvalik and Gallipoli. We overindulged on food (again), enjoyed the crystal clear Med sea, got cleaned up at a Turkish bath and endured the heat and crowds at the roman ruins.
Top 3 highlights of the trip:
3 day med cruise to recharge the batteries. The coastline was beautiful, we spent our days swimming, reading and exploring little villages on the way.
Istanbul - Definetly one of our top 5 cities. Really fun place, buzzing (maybe something to do with the 12 odd million people who live there), lots of history and more bars and restaurants crammed into backstreets than you could ever possibly imagine.
Gallopoli for the ANZAC tour. Our tour guide Bill was excellent, we came away with a great understanding of what exactly went on during the nine month campaign. The scenery was beautiful too.
