Today we headed for Turkey's Mediterranean coast to Antakya, a town situated close to the border with Syria.

Along the way we stopped at Gumusler Monastery which has some amazing and brilliant frescoes. It is a bit off the highway, but well worth the stop.

When it was known as Antioch in ancient times, the city was notorious for …

... a few words, but they were adorable.

Another big reason for us to come to Antakya is the Antakya Archaeology Museum. They have the world's largest collection of mosaics. The only downside was that some of the museum was closed for renovation. It's unknown at this time when the rest of the museum or St. Peter's Church will reopen.

We also gave ourselves a little day trip to Harbiye where they have ...

... goldsmith I was after, a fella named Aurelius Bluth. "Good mornin'," said Aurelius to me. "Always is," I replied. "What'll it be Rafael?" he asked. "Something for Malik," I said, "I haven't seen him in a while." "That ain't too peachy," said Aurelius, "where do you suppose he's at?" "I was fixin' to find him at his house," I said putting a stack of coins in the smith's hand, "covered in dames and wine." "No better place for a man to be," he said, looking on his shelf for ...

... and I grabbed a packet of biscuits, not knowing if it would end up being my lunch because I still couldn't work out which of these stops allowed time to eat and use the toilet or if it was just to let people off the bus. I almost missed the bus at the first stop by going to the toilet and when I came back the bus was pulling out of the station. Any way, these biscuits which are called Tuktu are amazing! I thought to myself, "if I were Turkish I would travel with ...

I took a microbus from Antakya to Reyhanli Turkey, continuing my trip down south to Syria. The microbus dumped me at a crossing on the highway, where I was able to get a taxi for 5 tl to the Turkish border. I didn't have a Syrain visa. After I reached the Turkish border control and stamped out of Turkey, I tried to walk to the Syrian Bab ...

    From Soap Factory to Hotel

    Once a soap factory the Savon Hotel is supposedly rated a 4 star hotel. While the rooms are clean, air-conditioned, and with free wi-fi access, it has the possibility of becoming a first rate hotel. As it is, it seems a bit "worn" and comes across more as a wanna-be. The room has a modern bathroom, flat screen TV and refrigerated mini-bar and safe. Our room overlooked a courtyard/restaraunt/parking area and we were told it could be noisy. Fortunately we were here during the quiet time of Ramadan. The best bet would be to ask for an "inside" room. We would consider staying here again.
