our top 10 for turkey captured in photos
Image Posted on
So we’ve been back from our trip for 6 days now and we have been back at work for the past week. Our body clocks are probably just about adjusted now despite having daylight savings to contend with too.
Now that we’ve kind of regained consciousness from the holiday coma, we are beginning to relive our Turkish adventure with our family and friends. Looking at photos also helps us with reminiscing about our trip. People always want to know what we thought of a place and would we go back again. They ask whether we had a good time or what was our favourite. In the past, wherever we’ve been we’ve generally got positive things to say and this time is really no different.
We’ve been rattling off the following phrases quite easily: “Turkey was brilliant”, “Loved Turkey! We had an amazing time.” “We saw so many things and learnt so much in Turkey that we hadn’t expected. And that’s probably because we didn’t really know what to expect”.
About Dubai on the other hand, well “Dubai isn’t our cuppa tea.” But more about that in another post as this is a Turkey post 🙂
Now to kick start our holiday debrief for Turkey we have a photo essay of our favourite & top 10 pictures/moments/experiences. These are in no particular order. Hope you enjoy the photos to start with and sit tight as there will be more stories and experiences in our subsequent posts.

Wow, looks like some fantastic memories were made there! I would love to visit some of those ancient architectural sites. Ahh, someday.

Hi Wendy – Turkey is really magnificent – it was a surprise package for us as we had no idea what to expect & guess that’s why we loved it so much 🙂 Hope you have a great weekend!

Beautiful photos. I could easily buy two dozen of those Turkish delights and enjoy it with a cup of authentic Turkish Coffee! The famous battle at Gallipoli has prompted me with the need to visit that site. I will certainly have to check it out one day. Hagia Sophia is a must-see for me, but I’ve now added Kayakoy to that list. A Greek ghost town? That’s right up my alley! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for stopping by – glad we created some inspiration for you 🙂 by the way – there are no ghosts (that we know of or that we saw) at Kayakoy 😉 Turkey is such an incredible place with such amazing architecture everywhere and the Turkish delight is the best! So where to next for you?
