Republic of Turkey…Türkiye Cumhuriyeti
March is a great time of year, because even though the weather was cold, there were very few tourists so we could see a lot and there were no crowds. We had a great itinerary, beginning with 6 days in Istanbul seeing the sights and shopping. Harry ended up in the hospital with a stomach bug so Gyorgyi and Rebecca spent two extra days in Istanbul with him while the rest of the group flew to Cappadocia. Harry recovered so the group was back together again for our flight to Izmir. We stayed in Kasadasi, and from there visited Pirene, Ephesus, Miletos, The Temple of Aphrodite, and the Temple of Apollo. The last leg was a drive to Pamukkale, and a flight back to Istanbul to conclude our trip.
