After our 4.30am wake up call (apparently you get used to it...) we woke up and were packed and ready to go by 10am. As were we in no rush we went for a coffee in town and a wonder around.
We then drove to Antakya (after being escorted to the highway by the Cenk - so sweet!). After about a 3 hour drive we hit the outskirts of the city. We were so hungry we didn't make it into the centre of town before we stopped off for lunch again at a little ...

I was all confused at first, because it shows the bus station in the center of town on my LP map, bus it was evident that this one was new.
