turkey: our 11 day itinerary

Posted on Updated on

So our excitement to go to Africa has been stunted by nothing other than us. Due to a multitude of reasons and factors, we have decided to postpone this trip and instead venture elsewhere. It was a toss up between several countries and Turkey has beat the rest.

However, about two days after locking it in, the riots began in Turkey. Oh no! We do know a few people who know people who are over there travelling now. Hopefully by September, it is calmer. Well, it has to be okay, everything is locked in and paid for. According to at present it is stating “Exercise a high degree of caution” – which was what Peru was on when we were there. Guess it is comforting that its not on “Reconsider your need to travel”. We’ll just have to wait and see how it all unravels.

All the same, we are very excited. Our itinerary is looking like this:

Day 1 – Istanbul
Day 2 – Istanbul
Day 3 – Gallipoli Battlefields
Day 4 – Troy, Acropolis of Pergamum
Day 5 – Ephesus, Kusadai
Day 6 – Pamukkale, Hierapolis
Day 7 – Aphrodisias, Fethiye
Day 8 – Fethiye
Day 9 – Kayakoy, Antalya
Day 10 – Perge, Aspendos
Day 11 – Antalya
Day 12 – Dubai
Day 13 – Dubai
The countdown can officially begin now that we are only a little over 2 months out! And fortunately as per our travel philosophy, Tasmania for January is now booked so we can breathe easier that we have the next adventure booked. Although we have visited Tasmania before, it is a place that we enjoyed so much and would not hesitate going back to!
