We landed in Athens from London. Athens is a historic place for sure. But I am not into so much history. We were on ourselves in Athens . It is a very well connected place through subways. We were in Athens when people there were conducting serious strikes against government and I was even afraid. We saw old Acropolis which is very famous and has a history. It was ruined. Then we came down to new Acropolis museum , spent some time there understanding some history. Then we went to Zeus temple which had also a lot of ruins. This was in Sintagma square . We took a subway to reach here. Then we were done for the day.

There was a knot in my stomach as I walked past clothing shops displaying life-jackets for sale. Inflatable rafts, some designed to carry two people, three at most. Diesel motors lined-up on the street outside shops that sell tourist souvenirs inside. While the rest of the world debates the migrant/refugee lexicon, in Izmir the inflow of Syrians has decisively created a multi-million dollar "raft economy" that supplies provisions for their sometimes fatal exit across the border into the European Union.

Bodrum is one of the centre of the Turkish Tourist industry and is the market town for the Bodrum Peninsula which consists of a number of towns and villages nestling on the edge of the Coast. One can pick Antalya or Marmaris too, but I did not want to visit any historical sites. 1. Take a dolmus (mini local bus) from the central bus station to the Tropical Camel Beach. It takes approx. 30min. from the bus station to the Camel Beach.The sea and the beach is one of the greatest in the Bodrum Peninsula. 2. Yacht Charter in Aegean Sea i)Every coastal destination on the Bodrum Peninsula offers a selection of day boat trips. There’s an experience to match your needs; you just have to make a little bit of effort to select the right one. ii)Avoid the cheap trips touted by the Travel Agents where you could be squashed on a party boat for 70, and served a mediocre lunch. Instead, head down to your local boat harbour (before 10am or after 6pm) and find one of the smaller (max 15-20 passengers), independently run boats. iii) If you've more days, then do not miss the 3 day yacht stay they offer. 3. Bodrum is famous for its night life which goes on till 5am! These are the must go clubs: i) Halikarnass club ii) Catamaran Bost club iii) Gumblet vicinity iv) Aquatica - If you are looking for crazy day parties and a unique summer experience then try out this Floating Beach Club.
