We have been traveling for almost 24 hours in all, with great flight across the pond with Lufthansa, then two more flights on Turkish Airlines. Turns out, once you leave the US, they FEED you and give out lots of good drinks... why ever travel within the US again?

We also went to a carpet factory to see the traditional way of making silk and wool carpets. I know. sounds dull - it was actually so interesting and amazingly entertaining. Didn't buy a silk carpet though. A small rug was about $7000 and went up in price to $30,000. We were allowed to rub our feet on them though - so soft - that was pretty good!
A great day.
... for offering wisdom, beauty, and fertility. I drank from all three wells (I hope I wasn’t being too greedy!), but I filled up a whole water bottle of the fertility water. Anyone who knows me well knows of my reproduction issues and although that’s not really a problem right now, I really want to be able to have children in the future so I’m taking the necessary steps now. After relishing in the peacefulness once last time, we headed down the mountain toward Ephesus. ...
... an excellent travel agent... I think I agree!). We drove back to Kemeralti and found the caretaker at the small Signora Synagogue - named after a wealthy woman. He also let us into the Algaze Synagogue. When Holger asked about who funded the restorations - thinking it was the government - he was treated to a long explanation about who had given money - it seems an Israeli Bank was a major contributor but that there was never ...
I was i intending to abandon going to Atilla's Getaway at Selchuck infavour of a more central pension at Kuladassi. but at the last moment i decided to return to the chillout plan. So I caught the bus back to Celchek and was dropped off near the bus station. The pension has an arrangement with a ticket seller at the bus station to call them and pick people up.

I read the reviews of this hotel and they couldn't be more wrong!!!
The front desk staff was wonderful and the location is great, that is where the good things about this hotel end. The breakfast was good as well.
My room: 104, smelled of the bathroom drain. I think this room my have formerly been a janitors closet. I complained about the smell, but there was a Marble Convention in town and no rooms to be had, anywhere. I was stuck. They offered to put something in the drain, which helped very little. The bed was about 50 years old and the stains on the mattress confirm it. The pillows were hard as cement and my room was over and next to a disco. The loud music started at 5pm and continued until at least 2am. Plus there was some sort of work going on during the day and the noise was everywhere. I could even hear the noise from the lobby.
There was NO hot water my 2 days stay and the view was of the fire escape and a wall.
Even as a budget travel place, which $75+ it was NOT worth it. I wouldn't recommend this place, even for budget travelers/backpackers.
