The Trip

A travel blog entry by ryder.chris


... our first day was actually more like a day and a third. Once we arrived, we gathered our luggage and then met our Turkish tour guide. His name is Oscar, and he will be with us until we leave Turkey in a few days. We took our charter coach to the city center where we had a little bit of time for lunch before our first performance, which was at 4:30 pm (yes that's correct, approximately 3 hours after our overnight 13 hour flight ...

Turkey - so many high points (part 2)

... hub of activity for both locals and tourists. After a nice lunch we went about finding a suitable Gallipoli tour for Paige and I to take on Tuesday - once this was achieved Kartal felt a sense of relief as he knew how important it was for Paige and I go to Gallipoli.

Back to our neighborhood on the crowded tram and a bit of a wander in our local Bazaar.
