Turkish Delight

Given the daily adventures we experienced in Turkey last year it became inevitable that we should want to return for more!!! 
Whirling Dervishes; Byzantine cave churches; clambering deep underground through several layers of an ancient Hittite City; marvelling at the extraordinary geological landscape that is Cappadocia; taking tea in the cosy rug clad home of a family who dwelt in a cave; travelling the ancient Silk Road across the Anatolian Plains, and admiring the many fine structures left behind by both Greeks and Romans. An added bonus was the lovely November weather.
  Now our travels will take us to a different corner of Turkey where we are hoping even more delights may be waiting for us!


  1. Enjoy your time there. Look forward to you photos upon your return.
    That Evil Eye/Devils Eye - I don't believe in that! I hear that they are rather superstitious in Turkey regarding that eye, along with a few other countries.
    All the best Rosemary.

  2. Have a great time and we will wait for beautiful photos.

  3. Wishing you and mr H a happy time again in Turkey.
    I think you are very brave, to be going at this time. Take care.
    A fascinating country that one day I would like to visit.. but in more peaceful times.
    looking forward to hearing all about it.
    happy weekend and good travels Rosemary.

    1. Fear not Val, but thanks for your concerns - we shall be nowhere near the troubles on the Syrian border. Our destination is over 600 miles away.

  4. Dear Rosemary, I remember your fabulous photographs of last year. Can't wait to see what you will bring back to us from this trip. I would love to go back to Turkey. It's been a long time but I do remember how fascinating are the sights and the people of Turkey.

  5. How splendid you will see more of that beautiful country……..and how fortunate for us you will share more fantastic photos Rosemary! Have a really great trip - hope the weather is kind. I loved my short visit to Turkey and hope to go again some year.

    Bon Voyage.
    Hugs - Mary
