Turkish Adventure

We have now been on our Turkish Adventure for about a week. It has been amazing. So far we've been to Istanbul and Cappdoccia, and we still have Selcuk, Fethiye and Kas to come.

Istanbul is a wonderful clean city, with excellent public transport. I wish I could say the same about Bmore. :-) Haghia Sofia and the Blue Mosque were pretty, but the Egyptian spice bazaar and all of the street food is even better. I loves me some street food. We then headed to Capadoccia and have been doing activities that would frighten our mothers. Things like hot air ballooning one day after 1 died and 8 were injured, riding an ATV around to different sites, and renting a scooter to head to a winery the next town over. It has been a blast, and we are taking lots of pictures.

And now it is time to return to drinking my beer on a comfy patio and watching the peple walk past. Life is good.

P.S. The loud group of Croatians that were on yesterdays tour just sat down behind us. *sigh*. Looks like we have to find a new spot.

What wonderful opportunities you two are making for yourselves; take advantage of everything, even the Turkish Baths. Just be Safe... The ballooning accident was an eye opener, just please no skydiving. How is the local beer? What is Turkish Delight? Are you finding free wi-fi everywhere?

Yes - you are making your parents a tad bit worried. But we are excited too because you are having such great adventures and taking advantage of everything there is to see and do. Can't wait to see pictures. Agree with momnipotent above - please NO sky diving or hang gliding or cliff jumping. Be safe, take care of each other and have FUN!
