So yesterday involved a lot of traveling but it was definitely worth it in the end. We got up and left Avanos for Nevsehir and the local airport. After checking in and passing through security we waited for our plane to Istanbul. Once we got to Istanbul we had an hour and a half layover before we boarded another plane to Izmir. Once we landed in Izmir everyone was a little tried of traveling but the rest of the day would more than make up for it. ...
... different dishes amongst each other. After this we left for the small village of Sarap Evi. Sarap Evi is known for it's sweet fruit wine and has been around since the 1600s. It is a quaint town in the mountains with many local merchants and winemakers. We taste tested pear, melon, blackberry, black mulberry, and cherry wine. It was a neat experience and a once in a lifetime opportunity. This last leg of the day concluded our time in Izmir and we went back to the Anemon Hotel for our evening ...
... as CUA have cut my card off due suspicious overseas activity (aka me using it). This meant one of the guys from the hostel had to shout my dinner.
None the less, I was in a race against time. Getting back to the hostel at about 1030pm and the trams stopped at midnight.
In the end, I was thankful my Asian friend from Izmir have me his Istanbul travel card (with credit on it), which got me to the airport just in time for check-in.
Now my long journey to Bali ...
... It was beautiful and what was most amazing to me about it was that on the outside of the station was the very crowded, noisy and chaotic Istanbul I was used to. Walking into the station, which was all open, it was peaceful and quiet. One would never know what was right on the other side.
... and started raiding Scott's backpack. He had chocolate covered pieces of mango and I was excited to try some but as soon as I started chewing the combo just didn't work and I promptly told Scott that it was ****. Next we opened his Baby Ruth and to me it looked similar to a Picnic. I wanted it to be like a Picnic and said so but was told it wasn't like one at all. I still tried it and was disappointed again! Scott's food sucked!
