Where I stayed

We've finally found a place to veg out for a bit...
We found a great hotel on Hostelworld called Urkmez Hotel and we ended up staying an extra 2 nights because the people there were so lovely!  Plus the decent free brekkie and guest kitchen were a nice change...
We went to the Ephesus ruins, another 10 YTL which were quite extensive and on the walk back we saw the last standing column of the Temple of Artemis, one of the Ancient 7 wonder of the world...
Another cool thing about Selcuk is that every year for a few weeks around this time, thousands of storks come and settle into the city and make their nests on the tops of hotels and telephone poles, etc.
We ended up being there for a wrestling tournament and a huge footie game (soccer), between 2 Istanbul teams, that everyone was glued to their tvs watching...
To be honest we just had a lovely time and got to know a lot of locals!  I would go back their in a second!
