Visiting Greece: Part 2 – Santorini

Visiting Greece also implies visiting one or more of the fabulous islands. The biggest problem is deciding which to visit. Since we went there out of tourist season, and barely having enough time for just one island, our choice went to Santorini. This turned out to be a great decision and we were not disappointed.

Going Turkey! – Part 5 : Some R&R in Antalya

_DSF6843Touring through a country and seeing new things is very rewarding but can also be somewhat exhausting. It was no different in Turkey, but we were prepared for it and made sure that we had the right place, and the right amount of time set aside for some rest and relaxation – Antalya!

Going Turkey! – Part 4 : Ancient Ruins

_DSF6652Ancient ruins are normally associated with Greece and Italy (Rome) and few people are aware that some of the most spectacular and important ruins are actually found in Turkey.  A visit to Turkey is not complete without visiting at least some of these sites.

Going Turkey! – Part 3 : An unusual hotel

_DSF6533We arrived late-night and tired in the town of Avanos, Cappadocia. The hotel that we were booked in looked nothing like a hotel, it looked more like a very strange and spooky B&B.
