I took the overnight ferry from Naxos to Samos, and arrived at 7:30 am today. Unfortunately, there were no cabıns available on this trip, so I got the full budget backpacking experience! Meaning trying to catch a few winks on the floor in the seating area of the ferry, along with about a zillion other people! Not recommended, let's just say that.

When I arrived, tired and hungry, I made my first rash decision of the trip and decided to skip Samos altogether, and head for Turkey. Somehow I just feel like I have had enough of Greece for the moment! So I hopped on the 8:30 ferry, and so here I am in Turkey!!

I'm staying in Selcuk, which is a few km's outside Kusadasi, the port. There are two other Canucks from T.O. area here at the moment, also planning on spending a month in Turkey. They are heading North though, while I will go South. Everyone is very friendly, the pension owner is so helpful! Very hospitable. They are already trying to sell me carpets though...

Tomorrow there is a market, then maybe Sunday I will tour Ephesus which is about 3 km from here. Today I am just taking it easy, and wandering the town. Off to find an interesting place for dinner!!
