Hello friends and welcome to my very 1st travelogue on Turkey, my most recent visit.
But before we jump into the hot air balloons, cave houses, virgin beaches, and Turkish Cacik (a cold, crunchy, refreshing yogurt side dish) you ought to know a little about me.
Am just another person who loves visiting new places, chatting up with locals, trying new cuisines, appreciate cultures and of course the history of the land I step foot in. My love for travelling comes from the little that I have travelled has left me wanting more and there is so much more to see whether it’s in your own country or another. Even a marooned island would have a story to tell.
However I must tell you that while my itinerary covers the must see, it also has an equal dose of places not yet popular amongst visitors. I like my trip to be little more adventurous by visiting off-beat places.
Incase you want a quick summary about my trip with the places I visited, where I stayed etc please scroll down to the bottom of the page.
So let the journey begin….
Frankly I had a very different expectation from the country, considering it was the month of Ramadan. But Turkey was every bit different than what I thought it would be or could be. I instantly fell in love with the place, the people (who were overtly friendly), the cuisine and everything about it.
The history of the Turks covers a time frame of more than 4000 years as it has witnessed historical figures and empires like the Romans, Byzantines & Ottomans.
It’s also a transcontinental country (the only country that is present in Asia and Europe). It has some of the most flavourful dishes and a great variety of beaches and mountains to suit your mood.
