Unlikely Tails - Pamukkale and Ephesus in a day

A travel blog entry by ahokieabroad


... a car ferry from the Asian side of the country to the European side) - Metro from Istanbul otogar to random station - Tram from random station back to the Blue Mosque - where we call home :) WHEW. We didn't know the train was an option (since no trains are running out of Istanbul at the moment), but without that option we would not have been able to do this journey in a day. Here is a summary of the various experiences: - The Night Bus - we ...
