With Mike & Michel we are driving up the coast from Bodrum to Istanbul with stops at Selcuk and Cannakale (pronounced Ch-naka-lay)! We need an extra overnight stop along the way so we decide on Ayvalik, a beach resort. We decide to "case the joint" before choosing a hotel...and that is when the fun starts!
