Ancient Antioch

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 …

... and bars, that we didn't find before, and thanks to the arabic influence here, the food is great- lots of mezze and amazing hummus. İf you're not convinced that hummus can be amazing, well, what can I say, it just is. One of the reasons we liked Antakya last time, was for it's diversity, liberal feel and arabic culture. Most people speak Arabic as well as Turkish, and often prefer to speak arabic- which is a bit challenging for us as it means ...

Edging closer to Syria...

... take 50 lira worth as we were getting it as a gift. We tried to hand him a 100 not but he shook his head...so we got out a 20 and before we could get out another he had given us 15 change...turns out it was only 7.50L per kilo so less than 3 euro! We of course then bought more. Gary then got a "Turkish Shave" the closest shave he has ever had before we wondered back to the hostel.

Tomorrow we are up around 5.30am to be at the border around 6am.

The kebab trail - Antalya to Antakia

... Still - it was good to have a day off from bus travel and although I'm trying to eat less on this trip, kebabs have brought me closer to the Turkish language. It hasn't all been about kebabs though. I've nibbled my way through Turkey's pides and of course, my favourite - kofte, which is a type of meatball and it can be found as far away as Bangladesh. Quite a well travelled little meatball! Actually, that's how I feel lately. My last stop in Turkey is in the cute town ...

... light). Astonishingly, there was a campsite in Iskenderun (it didn't seem especially touristy), it was open (winter! all turkish people seem to think it is too cold to camp, but the fact we got an ice-cream that day disproves this for us) and it was free. From Iskenderun, we had 10 miles of climbing, then 10 miles of descent through thick cloud. And although we got rained on, and my knees feel like ...

    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.
